With Miles Robinson and Michael Parkhurst both ruled out for tonight's Atlanta United playoff game against Philadelphia, there is still some uncertainty about how Frank de Boer will set up his defense and overall formation.

Atlanta United Analyst Jason Longshore joined John Fricke and Hugh Douglas to chat about some of the options that Frank de Boer has at his disposal tonight.

"Frank de Boer could start the game with 3 center backs in a 3-5-2, but they shifted to 4 defensively and they could start in that shape. Flo Pogba becomes a potential starter, there's lots of different ways to do this. One player I've seen quite a bit is Mikey Ambrose, does he push for time? Probably the most difficult decision de Boer has had in his time here in Atlanta."
