Ole Gunnars Solskjær has launched a scathing attack on the Premier League organisers despite Manchester United beating Everton 3-1 at Goodison.
The Red Devils have struggled recently, losing at home last weekend to Arsenal which was followed a defeat in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Solskjær is not happy that his side had just two days of rest before the Premier League showdown against the Toffees.
Speaking to BT Sport, Solskjær said: “We were set up to fail. The kick-off time set us up to fail. We have been to Turkey, played loads of games this season already, we got back Thursday morning and we are playing Saturday lunchtime, it’s an absolute shambles.
“These boys deserve better. Luke Shaw has got injured because of it. It’s a hamstring which might be a long one and Marcus Rashford might be struggling.
“The authorities set us up for fail, who is responsible? We’ve had enough of that. Players this season, in these times, a pandemic, mentally and physically it’s draining. Let us play on a Sunday, there’s an international break after this, it’s a joke.
“The players were brilliant. Cavani is getting better and better.”
Bruno Fernandes scored two first half goals end the first half 2-1 after Bernard opened scoring for Everton but Edinson Cavani ensured all three points for Man United with his first goal for the Red Devils since he joined on a free transfer from Paris Saint German (PSG).
