Solskjaer insists he has already prepared his squad for key fixtures this month

Manchester United leapfrogged Chelsea into the 4th position courtesy of their 3-0 victory over a lackluster Fulham at the Craven Cottage

Paul Pogba scored a brace and Anthony Martial added another to secure all 3 points for the Red Devils. With the victory, the Red Devils moved past Chelsea into the Champions league spots. United have 51 points from their 26 games, whereas Chelsea have 50. The Blues, however, do have a game in hand and will be playing leaders Manchester City tomorrow at the Etihad stadium, in a game that can have some serious implications on the title race as well as the race for top four finish.

Manchester United have a really tough next couple of weeks, wherein they will lock horns against the likes of PSG, Liverpool and Chelsea. They take on PSG in the Champions league on Tuesday, followed by Chelsea in the FA Cup on the 19th and finally Liverpool on the 24th. Solskjaer will be hoping that his key players can remain fit and possibly feature in all of these games. The Norwegian insisted that he has already plotted his side for these upcoming games,


“It has to. I’ve always been that way,” said Solskjaer on Friday. “I plan many, many weeks ahead but that is dependent on form, injuries, sickness.

“It might change if we lost that game or won that game, and I might make a different decision because you always leave it until the last day really.

“I’ve got a bit of a view on how the team will look against Chelsea, Liverpool, PSG but the closer you get to the Fulham game the more focused you are on just that one.

“The players just have to focus on the next one, and Fulham… that’s the character-revealer. The so-called big games, no problem, they’ll look after themselves.”

“If you look at the players, the age of them, they’re young and they’ve got plenty of development in them, but we also need some experienced players to stay and step up and really become the leaders,” he continued.

Author’s Take

The next 3 games might very well decide whether Solskjaer is made the permanent manager at Manchester United or not, and he will be hoping to come out on top in these games.
