Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has explained why he dropped Cristiano Ronaldo for the visit of Everton this afternoon.
The Norwegian has instead started with both Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani against Rafa Benitez’s men.
This is the first time Ronaldo will be left out of the United team in the Premier League since he returned to the club this summer.
“Well Wednesday was a big effort, big emotional and physical output so needed to freshen it up.
“Start of this game is very important, got big players coming on too, we believe it’s a team that can take charge of the game.
“They [Martial and Cavani] know they are good players, they know they are going to be very important for us.
“If we are to be successful this season we need to rotate, manage the minutes, we need to make sure we are a big squad and we are together.”
