Sinclair: Deduct 6 points from Manchester United for disrespecting Premier League on Tuesday night

Trevor Sinclair believes the Premier League should deduct 6 points from Manchester United after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rotated heavily for the game against Leicester City on Tuesday night.

According to Sinclair, Solskjaer disrespected the Premier League by making 10 changes to the team that started against Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon.

With two matches in 48 hours, Solskjaer had insisted he needed to heavily rotate his team and he picked an almost entirely different line-up against Leicester compared to the side that beat Aston Villa on Sunday.

Manchester United lost the game 2-1, which handed the Premier League title to Manchester City and also handed Leicester City in an advantage in the top four race to the annoyance of West Ham and Liverpool.

“Without being disrespectful to the players that played tonight, they made ten changes, this is their ‘B’ team,” Sinclair told talkSPORT.

“I think that’s disrespectful and it takes away from the top four race.

“The teams that are going to suffer from Man United’s lack of due diligence, the ones who could miss out on the top four, are Chelsea possibly, Liverpool, West Ham and Tottenham.

“I think there needs to be a punishment for Man United. Three points isn’t enough because that doesn’t affect anything.

“I honestly feel the way they put out this team, the way they didn’t safeguard their stadium, I think a six-point deduction should be given to Manchester United.”
