Manchester United supervisor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he is trusting “new legs” will give his group the edge over Manchester City in their Carabao Cup elimination round on ((Wednesday at 2.45 p.m. ET, live on ESPN+).
Joined have had four days to get ready for the derby in the wake of beating Aston Villa 2-1 on Friday while the gathering at Old Trafford comes only 72 hours after City’s 3-1 triumph over Chelsea on Sunday.
City had over seven days between games over Christmas when their outing to Everton was delayed after Pep Guardiola’s side restored various positive tests for COVID-19.
“We’ve had four days now after Villa so ideally we have all the more new legs,” Solskjaer told a news meeting on Tuesday.
“It’s a troublesome season yet we’ll profit by the pivots we’ve made. That will be significant with having new legs.
“With City against Chelsea, the newness and sharpness and force they had, It was nothing unexpected there in light of the fact that they had a couple of additional days to get ready.”
