Jesse Lingard states his prediction for Chelsea v Man United

Jesse Lingard looks ahead to Chelsea's clash with Manchester United on Sunday afternoon

Jesse Lingard is backing Manchester United to push Chelsea all the way in Sunday’s crunch Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.

The Red Devils are preparing to head to west London as they look to get back to winning ways in the top flight following their recent draws against Stoke City and Liverpool.

Manchester United are currently in seventh place in the Premier League table and five points off top spot as they prepare for Sunday’s crunch clash.

The game will mark Jose Mourinho’s first return to Stamford Bridge since his sacking by Chelsea last December and the Portuguese coach will be sure to want to prove a point against his former club.

And Lingard is looking forward to helping Manchester United try to take the three points off Antonio Conte’s men on Sunday.

Speaking in an interview with United’s website, Lingard said: “I enjoyed it last time when I was there and it was nice to be on the scoresheet.

“We drew though so hopefully we can get the win this time.

“We know it’s going to be a tough game against Chelsea but we are mentally prepared for that. We have the confidence now to go on and win every game.”
