Chelsea midfielder Ramires eyes maximum points against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday
Ramires has issued a rallying cry ahead of Chelsea’s clash against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
The Blues can take a big step towards winning the Premier League title with victory over the Red Devils, who have won their last six top-flight games.
Jose Mourinho’s side are seven points clear of second-placed Arsenal, who face Reading in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on Saturday before welcoming their London rivals to The Emirates next weekend.
And Brazil international Ramires urged the west London side to victory as the leaders look to seize their chance to move 10 points clear of their closest rivals.
Ramires wrote: “Big game at home… Come on you blues!! #Chelsea #CFC”
Mourinho is looking to win the second trophy of his current spell at the west London club after he guided the Blues to League Cup glory in March.
Chelsea drew 1-1 with United earlier in the season after Robin van Persie’s stoppage-time strike cancelled out Didier Drogba’s second-half opener at Old Trafford.
