Chelsea had 48 hours more rest, it’s not fair: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on FA Cup semi-final schedule


Manchester United supervisor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says it’s unfair that Chelsea have 48 hours more to arrange for Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final between the groups.

United face Crystal Palace within the Premier League later on Thursday whilst Chelsea head into the come upon having beat Norwich City on Tuesday.

“There is a concern that they’ve had 48 hours more rest and recovery than us. It’s not fair,” Solskjaer advised journalists.

“We spoke about fair scheduling going into this restart. I have to think about Thursday. We have to win that one and then let’s pick up the pieces after that.”

However, Solskjaer mentioned his staff have been in excellent form to maintain the approaching schedule.

“The next two weeks will be hectic, but we’re very fit. Our lads haven’t felt as fit as this for years,” he added.
