Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a fan of the introduction of extra substitutions and expanded squads.

Manchester United will look to hit the ground running when the Premier League resumes, with their first game of the restart at Tottenham on June 19.

99 days after they last took to the field in the Europa League against Austrian side LASK, United will go from famine to feast with a home match against fellow European qualification hopefuls Sheffield United on June 24, swiftly followed by the FA Cup Quarter Final at Norwich.

It’ll be a hectic period for Manchester United, and Solskjaer will have to lean on his squad.

The United boss says:

“It does feel like a new season, but then again, the first two games against Tottenham and Sheffield United are vital for the league standings.

“It’s a short season, only nine league games. So can we get as many points and good performances as possible?

“If we do get a good spell now, we could end up with some trophies and something to cheer about.

When asked about the introduction of 5 substitutes and expanded squads, the Norwegian continued:

“Now the rules have changed, we can use five subs and have nine on the bench.

“I think that’s helpful because footballers, after being out for so long going into competitive games, it will be a challenge for them and we have to look after them injury wise.”
