Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has complained that Chelsea have an unfair advantage as the Red Devils travel to south London to take on Crystal Palace on Thursday in a match which could prove pivotal in their top-four bid.
Following Manchester City’s successful appeal of their UEFA ban, United are aware that securing a top 4 place in the league is one of their two routes to Champions League qualification.
And now, Solskjaer has expressed his displeasure with his side's fixture saying Chelsea have an extra 48 hours to prepare for the two clubs' FA Cup clash.
In his words: "There is a concern, obviously that they will have had 48 hours' more rest and recovery than us, it's not fair. We spoke about a fair scheduling going into this restart and of course it isn't."
He further revealed that he is focused on Thursday's game at Palace, reiterating how important to come out on top. He disclose that he would think about other things only after the game.
Recall that Manchester United sits fifth on the log of the English Premier League and 4 points behind Chelsea. The Red Devils could also qualify for 2020-21 Champions League if they win this season’s Europa League.
