‘He looks tired’ – Solskjaer urged to rest this Manchester United player against Liverpool

Arsenal legend Paul Merson has urged Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to rest Bruno Fernandes against Liverpool.

Merson believes Bruno should be rested to avoid burnout as he looks exhausted right now.

Speaking about which player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should rest in Man United’s game against Liverpool, former Arsenal man Paul Merson told StarSport: “Manchester United should rest Bruno Fernandes against Liverpool this weekend. He looks tired to me.

“He’s played every single game in the league and all those minutes start to add up after a while. For me, he doesn’t play in this game. United haven’t had a chance to win the league like this for a few years.

“They have to take this chance and prioritise the title race. The FA Cup just isn’t as important. It’s more important to keep him as fresh as possible for the league. He lifts them. They look to him to make things happen.”

Meanwhile, Solskjaer has already confirmed that he will rotate his team for the game against Liverpool, but will still field a strong team capable of winning.
