Man Utd vs West Ham: Solskjaer explains why he dropped Ronaldo

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has explained why he left Cristiano Ronaldo out of his squad to play West Ham to play in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night. According to the Norwegian, it is not “possible” for Ronaldo to play in every game this season. Solskjaer made 11 changes to the team that beat the Hammers in the Premier League at the weekend. Alex Telles, Donny van de Beek, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard have all been given a chance to impress from the start at Old Trafford.

‘He doesn’t want to run! – Dion Dublin slams Anthony Martial’s Performance after Manchester United’s Carabao Cup exit

Manchester United star, Anthony Martial has been blamed for the club’s woeful outing in the Carabao Cup against West Ham United last night. Former United striker, Dion Dublin slammed the Frenchman’s performance in their 1-0 defeat to the Hammers. The Red Devils are now out of this season’s League Cup at the first hurdle, with Manuel Lanzini’s goal deciding the game at Old Trafford.

Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov, has claimed Edinson Cavani is “probably unhappy” about Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival at the club. Ronaldo has netted three times in two games for United since he returned from Juventus this summer. Although Berbatov is delighted to see the 36-year-old wearing the red shirt again, he fears some members of the squad will be “unhappy” about his arrival. Berbatov is particularly worried about Cavani’s prospects this season, with the Uruguayan legend naturally slipping down the pecking order and handing over the No. 7 shirt to Ronaldo. “It will be interesting to see how Ole keeps the other players happy.

EPL: Lukaku will be more important than Ronaldo this season – Stan Collymore

Sport pundit, Stan Collymore, has said Romelu Lukaku is more important this season to Chelsea, than Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United. Both players returned to the Premier League this summer. Lukaku cost the Blues £97million-plus, while Ronaldo returned to Old Trafford for a fee less than £20m. Collymore, writing in his UK Mirror column, said: “If Chelsea were to lose Lukaku for 10 games it would massively impact on any title tilt, even their bid for a top-four finish. “While United have Edinson Cavani, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes to turn to for the goals which would get them through such a spell if Ronaldo were to be ruled out. “At 36, you would hope as well that this season is less about Ronaldo than it has been ...
