Manchester United veteran Paul Scholes: It’s a massive week for us
Paul Scholes says it's a "massive" week for Manchester United, with two games against Chelsea before Arsenal's visit
Paul Scholes believes Manchester United are facing a “massive” week in their season, with the Red Devils making the trip to Chelsea on Sunday.
The 19-time English champions have won twice in six attempts against Chelsea in the Premier League, and Scholes admits Roberto Di Matteo’s side are a dangerous outfit with plenty of attacking threats.
“We’ve got three massive games really in a week,” Scholes told United’s website.
“Obviously Chelsea twice and then Arsenal at home. Sunday is a big one. We’ve not got a brilliant record at Chelsea over the last few years and it’s something we hope we can change.
“We watched them against Tottenham last week. They’ve signed a different type of player to a couple of years back when you were looking at a big, powerful team.
“Now they’ve signed smaller, better footballers who are difficult to play against. We know each of them is capable of creating chances and scoring goals themselves.
“They’re a good team to play against because they like to play football and you always get a fair share of the ball there and a fair share of the chances.
“There’s always a good atmosphere and we want to change the results we’ve had over the years there.”
