Solskjaer made six changes to United’s starting line-up for the Premier League clash on Saturday
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed why Marcus Rashford was dropped to the bench for their match against Fulham.
The Manchester United interim manager made six changes to his starting line-up for the Premier League clash at Craven Cottage.
He left out Rashford, Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard, Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly and Ashley Young.
Solskjaer told Sky Sports: “A couple had to be made as Rashy has had a dead leg since Leicester.
“Victor (Lindelof) is a slight concern but hopefully he will be okay for Tuesday.
“Chris (Smalling) and Joner (Phil Jones) did really well against Mitrovic last time and it is going to be a fight in the box sometimes against him so we’ve put them two in there.”
Rashford has been in excellent form under the caretaker boss, scoring six goals in 10 games after being given the chance playing through the middle.
United have the chance to move into the top four, temporarily, with a win against Fulham but Solskjaer has one eye on an important Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.
