‘Is this a prank or something?’ – These Man United fans can’t believe Solskjaer has benched Ronaldo for Martial

Saturday morning sees the first Premier League fixture of the weekend with Man United welcoming Everton to Old Trafford.

Given his importance to the side, it was, perhaps, a surprise that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had benched Cristiano Ronaldo, replacing him with an out of sorts Anthony Martial.

That said, the 36-year-old had exerted himself in the midweek win over Villarreal, and there’ll be more difficult assignments ahead for United.

Donny van de Beek must be wondering what he has to do to get a regular start as he begins another match on the subs bench.

It’s the absence of Ronaldo that has got supporter’s backs up, however, and many took to social media to vent their anger.
