2 Reasons Why Christiano Ronaldo Should Be Benched For The Next Two Games - Opinion

Manchester United will return to the Premier League on Saturday as they have been booked to host Aston Villa at Old Trafford. The Red Devils will be hoping to get back to their winning ways when they take on Aston Villa at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils will enter the game to win after being knocked out early in the EFL Cup on Wednesday. David Hamlet's West Ham United beat Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford and qualified for the fourth round of the competition.

Manchester United new signing Christiano Ronaldo has been in good form since returning to the Premier League. Christiano Ronaldo has scored three Premier League goals in two games and is hoping to add to the result this weekend. While fans will want to see more of Cristiano Ronaldo versus West Ham United this weekend, there are two reasons why Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should have kept Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench early.

1. To give him a break:

Cristiano Ronaldo is almost 37 years old and may not be able to play in every game this season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs a trained and fit Christiano Ronaldo to win trophies this season.

Cristiano Ronaldo's regular play could exhaust him and injure him, which could be disastrous for the player and Man United's chances of winning a trophy this season.

2. To be fully prepared for the Champions League:

Manchester United will have to keep Christiano Ronaldo on the bench in this weekend's clash against Aston Villa to keep him fit for their must-win Champions League clash against Villarreal in midweek. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had to sacrifice Aston Villa's game to get the three points he needed against Villarreal, especially after losing their opener to Young Boys.

Do you agree with my analysis? Should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer book Cristiano Ronaldo for the Champions League clash against Villarreal or take the plunge against Aston Villa on Saturday?
