Ole Gunnar unfazed by crucial six-week period for Man United

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is adamant his side can cope with a busy schedule in the coming weeks. 

The Red Devils begin a busy schedule with a tricky fixture away to Chelsea on Monday night, before key matches in the Europa League, FA Cup as well as the Premier League. 

The Norwegian, as quoted by the club's official website, admitted it will be a tough period for his boys, but exuded confidence that they can get the job done. 

“Hopefully we’ll go through against Club Brugge, a good team, and if we do, we will have 11 games in those six weeks," he said in response to a question on how important the period is.

"That’s possible. It’s another hard task for the boys and that’s why this week together and the week off before that, I’m sure we’ll be better off for it. It’s important of course, every game is important. There are only 13 [league] games left to claw back the points we need," he added. 

Monday's night's match at Stamford Bridge is pivotal in the race for a top-four finish, and Solskjaer understands this better than anyone else.

“It’s a big game of course, Chelsea have been third or fourth nearly all season so for us and the chasing pack they are the ones to catch. Hopefully, we can get three points that will make a big difference for us going forward,” he added. 

A result against Frank Lampard's side could be a huge boost in the battle for a European football ticket, while a loss can not be catastrophic, it will give the Blues some cushion going into the last few matches of the season.
