Man Utd boss Solskjaer shrugs off ban threat ahead of Fulham clash

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says the threat of suspension isn't something that influences his team selection.

With Bruno Fernandes, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw all a yellow card away from suspension, Solskjaer was asked if possible bans factored into his selection for their clash with Fulham.

"No," he replied.

"You just have to take one game at a time because if you leave them out for one game, then they might as well get a suspension for one game!

"There are a couple of games to go until the amnesty comes in, after 20 games, but it's not in my thoughts.

“It really feels like we've got the strength in depth. I have to leave some players even out of the [matchday] squad, when they should be in the squad, but it's a good challenge and conundrum to have for the right reasons."
