United have only won three of their opening eight Premier League games this season and back-to-back defeats against Arsenal -- in Solskjaer's 100th game in charge of the club -- and Istanbul Basaksehir led to speculation about his future at Old Trafford.
However, United responded with a 3-1 win away at Goodison Park to ease the pressure on Solskjaer and he hit out postmatch at the timetable he has had to contend with.
"We were set up to fail. The kick-off time set us up to fail. We have been to Turkey, played loads of games this season already, we got back Thursday morning and we are playing Saturday lunchtime, it's an absolute shambles," he said.
"The authorities set us up to fail, who is responsible? We've had enough of that. Players this season, in these times, a pandemic, mentally and physically it's draining. Let us play on a Sunday, there's an international break after this, it's a joke."
"Most importantly for me as a No. 10 is serving my teammates, as I did in the end for Cavani," Fernandes said after the game.
"I had the chance to shoot and look for the hat trick but I see him alone. And if Marcus can take the second goal, it is not a problem for me. Everyone needs to be a leader."
