Despite just failing to win again, Manchester United are optimistic looking at the next match against a strong team, Chelsea. This was revealed by the mainstay defender, Luke Shaw. He believes, the match will be very crucial for the Red Devils.
Manchester United have just been held to a Wolverhampton Wanderers draw in the Premier League continued. Of course the results are disappointing, especially the fact that they then rested for the next two weeks as a winter break.
After the break, the Red Devils await a fairly difficult match. Ole Gunnar Solsjjaer’s troops will travel to Stamford Bridge, facing host Chelsea. Matchday 26 matchday Premier League will take place on the 18th of February.
That said, this match is a must win game for United. If they can beat the Blues, then they can cut their distance to just three points from the top four of the standings. For information, Chelsea are in 4th position, with a six-point advantage.
No wonder the players of the Red Devils, including Luke Shaw, are not without enthusiasm and very optimistic ahead of the match.
“Chelsea are a big match and we are very happy to face them,” Shaw told MUTV.
The England national team player admitted that Chelsea would be a difficult opponent in the match later. Moreover, they will play at home. But Shaw believes that with experience, his team can achieve positive results.
Moreover, it can be said that this is one of the shortest ways to cut the distance to the top four of the standings.
“We have often faced them in other competitions. We will have a few days to rest and after that we will train hard because we know that this match will be a difficult match. We want to distance ourselves so we have to defeat them. “He concluded.
Manchester United is targeting the big four in the final standings later this season. They failed to achieve it last season, and missed the European Champions League. Reportedly, the players will not spend winter breaks for vacation.
Reportedly, Manchester United will fly to Spain, undergo training in the State of Matador, because of fine weather there.
