Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not think that Manchester United in the remainder of the Premier League season is going to take advantage of the fact that competitors Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are still active in Europe. The Norwegian manager is expected to even the three London teams therefore have an advantage.
United ran aground this week in the quarter-finals of the Champions League after FC Barcelona in both matches a bit too big for ‘The Red Devils’. Tottenham on the other hand joined in the last four, while Chelsea and Arsenal in the semi-finals of the Europa League reached.
‘The Blues’, ‘The Gunners’ and the ‘Spurs’ get a busier schedule than United in the fight for a spot in the top four of the Premier League, good for a Champions League ticket. Solskjaer, however, thinks not that it will result in faster points going spare.
