Solskjaer complains about Manchester United and Chelsea fixtures scheduling

Solskjaer complains about Manchester United and Chelsea fixtures scheduling

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has criticised the decision which will see Manchester United and Chelsea both play on Saturday following their fixtures in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.

And Solskjaer believes there is ‘no common sense’ behind the decision to make United and Chelsea play their Premier League fixtures on Saturday with a short turnaround.

‘The boost and energy you get in the group after a win like this has to be built on,’ said Solskjaer.

‘It’s a very, very quick turnaround, a different turnaround to last year when we played Everton away and played Wednesday night and Saturday morning. But the players aren’t going to get caught out, we’ve got to start as we finished on Wednesday night.

‘Yeah, absolutely no explanation, well, it’s TV. Absolutely no common sense at all.

‘We had the same scenario last year when we were in Turkey, came back and played Everton. The players aren’t gonna get that joy again, they had it last year as well.

‘But we have to make it happen, because it’s not like we did it last year so it’s going to have to happen again, the crowd is going to have to help, that’s important and I know they will.

‘Us and Chelsea played Wednesday night. We could easily have played Sunday and Liverpool-City should have been a Saturday one.

‘Common sense might not be so common. But that’s for another day.’
