EPL: 2 Reasons Why Cristiano Ronaldo Should Be Benched This Weekend

Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Saturday when they host Aston Villa at Old Trafford. The Red Devils will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways when they take on a strong Aston Villa side at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils will be coming into the game with the aim to win after getting dumped out early in the EFL Cup on Wednesday. David Moye's West Ham United defeated Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford to qualify for the fourth round of the competition.

Manchester United's new signing, Cristiano Ronaldo has been in good form since he made a return to the Premier League. Cristiano Ronaldo has already scored three Premier League goals in two matches and will be hoping to add to his tally this weekend. Despite the fans wanting to see more of Cristiano Ronaldo against West Ham United this weekend, here are the two reasons why Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should rather keep Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench.

1. To Give him some resting time:

Cristiano Ronaldo is almost 37 years ago and may not be able to feature in every match this season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs a fit Cristiano Ronaldo to be able to win a trophy this season hence the reason why he should rationalize and manage Cristiano Ronaldo game time very well to avoid tiring him down.

Playing Cristiano Ronaldo regularly could burn him down and may lead to an injury which could be devasting for the player and Man United's chances of winning a trophy this season.

2. To be fully ready for Champions League:

Manchester United needs to keep Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench in this weekend's match against Aston Villa to keep him fit for the mid-week must-win Champions League clash against Villarreal. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must sacrifice Aston Villa game to get the needed three points against Villarreal especially after losing the opening fixture against Young Boys.

Do you agree with my analysis? Should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reserve Cristiano Ronaldo for the Champions League game against Villarreal or risk him against Aston Villa on Saturday?
