Man United will struggle to beat top teams, says Robbie Savage
Robbie Savage isn't convinced by Manchester United's start to the season
Manchester United could struggle to beat the top sides this season judging by their early results, according to Robbie Savage.
The Red Devils face Premier League leaders Chelsea in their first real test of the season under new manager Louis van Gaal.
United have won three of their opening eight games, trailing Chelsea by 10 points ahead of the clash at Old Trafford.
And Savage reckons United will need to improve their attacking approach if Van Gaal wants to beat Chelsea.
“Louis Van Gaal’s predecessor David Moyes discovered that when you are Manchester United boss the pressure is on whenever you have a bad result against any of the top teams,” Van Gaal said.
“Moyes only won one of his eight games against last season’s top four, and lost five of them. Van Gaal has to do better than that, but his early results suggest that might be a struggle.
“United’s attacking approach has not been too convincing against the lesser sides in the Premier League, and it will be very interesting to see how far it gets them against the best teams.
“We will find out when they play Chelsea.”
