"I think that's helpful because footballers, after being out for so long, going into competitive games will be a challenge for them and we have to look after them injury-wise and fitness-wise".
United travel to Spurs on June 19, and Solskjaer said his squad will enter the game with the same mentality they had on the opening day of the season when they dominated Chelsea in a 4-0 win at Old Trafford.
Solskjaer was upbeat about the prospect of getting something out of a season that has thus far been one Manchester United fans might want to forget.
"I think everyone can see over the last few months how the players have behaved and dealt with the situation and how we as a club have dealt with it". We know it's a big game for everyone.
Hitting the ground running is something that Solskjaer believes will be key to success in the mini-season to come.
"And it's a short season, it's only nine (league) games so can we get as many points and good performances as possible".
"We can't just flog one player and say to them, "you play every game and every minute" because it might be a period when we have to rotate quite often".
That victory in Austria extended United's unbeaten run to 11 matches and Solskjaer is in no doubt as to what his side must do to be ready as they continue their quest for a place in next season's Champions League.
"If we do get a good spell now, we could end up with some trophies and something to cheer about".
"The first club that was close to signing me was Tottenham with Pochettino, but I don't know, maybe they thought the amount Sporting wanted was too much so in that moment Sporting decided they don't want to sell", Fernandes told former Serbian player Mario Gjurovski in an Instagram Live video (via Mirror). Of course, that is special.
