Manchester United Europa League preview: Go for silverware or rest up for next season? | ESPN FC

Manchester United resume their European campaign this week, facing LASK in the second leg of the UEFA Europa League round of 16. While Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will undoubtedly field his second team after winning the first leg 5-0, the question becomes what he does for the rest of the competition. Does Solskjaer look to play his stars, or will Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood be given a rest in order to recharge for the 2020-2021 English Premier League campaign? Craig Burley, Mark Ogden and Jan Age Fjortoft all discuss.

Mehdi Tajeddini:
Craig is still so bitter after being trashed by United in 94 cup final. For months he criticised OLE and United but can't take it when ole said what he said. Even Stevie an ex Liverpool player isn't as biased as Craig against United.

Burley thought United and Everton might get relegated, nobody takes him seriously.

Burley again acting like ole was jumping up and down for 3rd o wait that was jose for 6th please open ta mouth about that ya clown
I don't know where Craig gets that Ole was 'celebrating 3rd like it was a trophy'. Complete nonsense.

Craig's continued attacks on Ole makes Craig look unprofessional. It's coming across as a personal agenda with Craig. Was there an issue between them at some point?

Wayne Rooney:

"Ferguson wanting us to attack Guardiola's Barcelona in 2 Champions League finals was suicidal. Ferguson kept saying we're Manchester United and we are going to attack. But deep down, the players knew it was the wrong approach."

Craig keeps talking about Ole celebrating 3rd... Not once have I seen Ole celebrate the 3rd place spot. Craig is OBSESSED with criticizing Ole for the smallest things.

Liverpool have had 1 and a half good seasons and they are the best team in the world 👏👏👏😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣they won the UCL and then the premiership let’s see what they get next season before we start calling them the best team in the world oggy
craigs just bitter for having spent his entire career at small clubs and watching ole light up his teams defenses. and yes chelsea is a small club.

Did Ole pull an Icardi on Burley?

I can smell the hypocrisy coming for their voices.
United: doesnt even celebrate being 3rd, but is still happy for getting the best possible outcome for the season
ESPN: rinses United for apparently 'celebrating' 3rd
Meanwhile Aston Villa: celebrates 17th like they've won the treble
ESPN: *I see no problem here*

Burley with the agenda as usual

i hope burley is removed from the show
Ogden sounds like a customer service rep for an Insurance company.
Whn they don't win Graig is gonna have a whole different opinion on this. Clip it 🤣💀
Johan Rijhkelaar
Johan Rijhkelaar:
Off course they’ll play to win it, first game they may rotate the squad given the huge lead they got but after that every team will play its best players. Anyone wants a bit of silverware
This is the stupidest title I’ve ever read in my life.
Benson 17
Benson 17:
I fear everything is set up perfectly for Liverpool to win the league again next season with a potential 3 week head start on City & United. They'll be fresher and fitter to so they know the opportunity the covid delay has served up. That's potentially 9-12 point lead before Xmas
Ole might be able to put pressure on the board/Woodward to get transfers through if they go deep in the Europa League. Squad depth was a big issue this year and congested fixtures could convince them to cover the holes on the bench now instead of a year from now.

Mohammed Faisal
Mohammed Faisal:
50/50. United will struggle next season if they go for this trophy. Trust me. They will be fighting for the top four once again instead of the title. They could even miss out because of going for the Europa. Let's see what happens. I hope I'm wrong and they win the Europa and still do fine the whole of next season. They need to maximise their squad depth to improve rotation
Frantz H
Frantz H:
They will get rested first game, after that this is just a pre season tour in a way and the team will want to win it.

It still gets me weird to why pundits on espn apart from Jan do hate man United especially Craig burley. This sometimes push me away from following espn talks more often when Jan is unavailable

Jan makes the most sense out of all the so called pundits ... He really seems to know football better... Not just pass on sarcastic remarks to show himself to be some big winner..
Nidhin s Dharan
Nidhin s Dharan:
Did Craig cross paths with Giggs anywhere in his career? That's the only logical explanation for this
They need break?! Lol they just had 4 months break...
Rose Finnøen
Rose Finnøen:
Im so glad that Jan is joining. He loves fotball and he knows what he talks about. If you are going to speek about footbal you shall be nuteral as much as possible. But when you have some one who cant set a side theyr feelings they should not join ESPN. Thats my opinion.

Really like how ole is transforming our squad! He's come in! Been ruthless at times! Got rid of the deadwood! His signings have been good! Now we're starting to see the start of something big! He deserves time and to be backed were a better team all round now! Ole's most definitely at the wheel! !!
Most punchable face? Burley
