The Manchester coach regrets that Chelsea have another 48 hours to prepare for the confrontation planned for Sunday in the semi-finals of the cup.
In good shape since the resumption of the Premier League, Manchester United missed the boat on Monday night at Old Trafford. While a victory made it possible for the Red Devils to overtake Leicester and Chelsea in the classification and take 3rd place, the men from Ole Gunnar Solskjær united in the last seconds of extra time against Southampton (2- 2). But no time to doubt for Mancuniens, whose program promises to be very busy this week.
“Chelsea are already in their semi-final”
In fact, the Red Devils face Crystal Palace on Thursday night in the Premier League, before rubbing shoulders with Chelsea on Sunday in the Cup semi-final. A busy schedule, which does not taste at all of Ole Gunnar Solskjær, who believes that it is abnormal for the Blues to benefit from more recovery time.

“Chelsea will have 48 hours of rest and recovery more than us. It’s not fair … We talked about a fair schedule before this restart. I have to think about Thursday’s game when Chelsea are already in their semi-final. We have to win at Crystal in the hope that there will be no crime “, counted the Manchester United coach. As a reminder, Chelsea played on Tuesday and won against Norwich thanks to a goal from Frenchman Olivier Giroud.
