Manchester United go up against Everton in their Premier League clash today.
By JACK OTWAY
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opened up on his decision to drop Cristiano Ronaldo for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Everton. The Portugal international has scored five goals in five matches since returning from Juventus. But he won’t be starting this afternoon’s contest at Old Trafford.
Manchester United have been hit and miss so far this season.
While they’ve won four of their opening Premier League matches, they’ve also lost three of their last five games across all competitions.
As a result, today’s contest with Everton is a big one.
Victory will see them move above Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table, while a defeat or draw will represent a setback to their trophy hopes.
United have chosen to omit Ronaldo from their starting XI, despite the Portugal international’s brilliant performances.
Express Sport understands it’s a decision that has enraged the veteran, who now feels angry towards Solskjaer as a result.
And Solskjaer has now opened up on that decision.
