Manchester United were beaten 3-1 by Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Sunday, as United failed to make it to the semi-final of the FA Cup.

United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer decided to rotate his side for this crucial fixture and also hand a rest to star man Bruno Fernandes, but it didn’t pay off, as United seemed off the pace before eventually falling to a 3-1 defeat.

Meanwhile, speaking after the game, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted that he had no regret in the team he chose and would do the same again, due to the accumulation of games his team has suffered.

“I would have started the same team again,” Solskjaer said.

“We felt they had more than 45 minutes in them [Pogba and Van de Beek] and they are important players for us, that’s why we started them.

“Every team selection has reasons behind it, Bruno has played lots of football – he broke all his records physically on Thursday. He is a human being, he’s played a game every three or four days.

“It was a chance to start both Donny and Paul but the accumulation of games has caught up with us. With Bruno, he wants to play, but sometimes you have to make decisions for the benefit of the team.”
