EPL: Here’s Why Man Utd’s Solskjaer Benched Sancho In Their Match Against West Ham



Jadon Sancho was benched throughout yesterday’s Manchester United clash against West Ham and the manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opened on why he chose it to be so.

According to Solskjaer on reasons why he did not start Sancho in Man United’s 2-1 win against West Ham he said it was because of the player’s ability to make an impact off the bench.

Sancho, who replaced Mason Greenwood in the second half against West Ham, had started Man United’s last three games against Wolves, Newcastle and Young Boys, respectively.

“Jadon’s Sancho started the Tuesday game and we found the decision better to leave him here now and the chance to come on and make a difference if we need him to,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

He added, “Scott McTominay and Fred of course, they are back in, they are a partnership that we see here, we want to have their energy here today.”

Meanwhile, Man United defeated West Ham, thanks to goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Jesse Lingard.
