Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has insisted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have to rotate his squad with four games in 10 days and believes the best time to do it is against Manchester City.
It is a terrible state of affairs for United when they entertain rivals City on April 24.
If they win they gain bragging rights but could easily hand the title to their bitterest rivals Liverpool for the first time in nearly 30 years while if they lose, it will probably mean that City go on to retain the title – becoming the first team to do so since United won in 2009.

With United desperate to finish in the top four in the Premier League and a busy schedule ahead Sky Sports pundit Neville has worked out the best game for Solskjaer to alter his team.
‘Sunday away to Everton is the most winnable of the games,’ Neville said on Sky Sport’s Monday Night Football programme.
‘If they beat City but lose to Chelsea, they are still in and around the top four. If they lose to City but beat Chelsea, they are in the top four.

‘So if they were to win against Everton on Sunday, the game to change players around a bit would be the City game.
‘That’s not them going into the city game thinking United can lose the game, they have to win.
‘But with four games in 10 days you can’t play the same eleven players.
‘My view would be that if they beat Everton on Sunday then make two or three changes against City, while still trying to get the result.’
Earlier this month Neville conceded that he would want the Anfield side to prevent his cross-city rivals from achieving the Quadruple.
He told Sky Sports: ‘I’m not keen on Liverpool winning the league, but I am less keen on Man City winning the quadruple.’
