In the pre-match press conference ahead of the Crystal Palace clash, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “There is a concern, obviously, that they will have had 48 hours’ more rest and recovery than us.
“It’s not fair. We spoke about a fair scheduling going into this restart and of course, it isn’t.
“But I have to think about Thursday [against Crystal Palace], winning that one, focusing on that one, and then pick up the pieces after that.”
Right after facing the Eagles, Manchester United must prepare to face Chelsea in a tough FA Cup semi-final.
The Blues will have a 48-hour rest between their recent tie against Norwich City on Tuesday and the semi-final but that’s not the case with us.
United managed to keep their squad free from injuries for a fair amount of time but Luke Shaw, Brandon Williams and Mason Greenwood have all picked up knocks.
