Revealed: Ronaldo regret for Man Utd as Martial misfires again

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows he can’t play Cristiano Ronaldo in every game this season

Manchester United were dumped out of the Carabao Cup by West Ham, the manager might have regretted giving the Portugal international the night off.

“He’s come in and made a difference already,” Solskjaer had told Sky Sports before the third-round clash at Old Trafford”

“It’s going to be a long season and he wants to play as much as possible, but every match is not possible.”

Still, if you’re a betting person, you would have put money on Ronaldo converting at least one of United’s 27 shots against West Ham.

And, in the end, United paid a heavy price for his absence, with Manuel Lazini’s early strike deciding the game in the visitors’ favour.

As is so often the case in the League Cup, this was a game for squad players to stake a claim for a starting spot by making the most of some much-needed game time.

Ronaldo was left out of the squad completely as Solskjaer made 11 changes.

Donny van de Beek was given his second start of the season, Dean Henderson was back after recovering from Covid-19,

while Anthony Martial was picked up front for the first time since Ronaldo’s return.
