Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed why he substituted midfielder, Bruno Fernandes during his sides 0-0 draw with Liverpool on Sunday.
Manchester United held Jurgen Klopp’s Reds to a barren draw on Sunday, but still remain top of the table.
Solskjaer replaced Fernandes with Mason Greenwood in the 89th minute and the Portuguese midfielder was obviously angry with the decision.
Speaking on his decision to substitute Fernandes, Solskjaer said, “It was a tactical decision. Bruno has been running his socks off for us in every single game since he came here.
“Running, more or less, every game. Towards the end, I felt Paul’s physical presence in there might be a chance for us.
“Mason [Greenwood], you know if he gets a chance he can score in the blink of a second. But it was a throw of the dice to get Mason on, even though he had to defend against Robertson.”
On United’s position as table topper, Solskjaer added, “It doesn’t really matter where we are now, it matters where we are in May.
“We move on, carry on. We feel that we’ve developed and that is a good feeling with being disappointed to only get one point away.”
