Solskjaer on whether or not Bruno will be rested against Watford

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is non-committal on whether or not he will start Bruno Fernandes in Saturday's FA Cup tie against Watford. 

The Reds will be keen on bouncing back from a disappointing 0-2 home defeat to rivals Man City in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night. 

Speaking after the match, Solskjaer said he will have a chat with the midfielder before deciding on whether or not to include him in the team.

The Norwegian further revealed he will rotate his team, with two Premier fixtures on the horizon, one against defending champions Liverpool

“Well, we go into every game wanting to win, of course, we do,” the manager said. “There will be a few changes, of course, there will as it's such a season that we have to.

”We have shown quality when we have had to do that before and we will make a few changes. I will see tomorrow [Thursday] morning who is fit and who is not fit and who is ready to go.

“He wants to play every game, Bruno,” added Ole. “Of course, it's a long season. 

“Let's see what team we come with on Saturday so I'll have a chat with him about how he feels.”

One man who will not be involved in the second match running is Edinson Cavani, who is serving a three-match ban.
