Owen Hargreaves issues warning to Man United ahead of Chelsea trip
Owen Hargreaves warns Manchester United that they must step their game up ahead of their trip to Chelsea
Owen Hargreaves has warned Manchester United that the Red Devils must step their game up in the Premier League as they prepare for their crunch Premier League trip to Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.
Jose Mourinho’s men have come in for criticism in recent weeks for their stuttering form as the Portuguese coach continues to tinker with his strongest line-up.
United were criticised for their negative approach as they played out a goalless draw with Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League on Monday night.
That result followed their 1-1 draw with Stoke City before the international break and left them seventh in the Premier League and five points off top spot after seven games.
And former Red Devils midfielder Hargreaves has warned Mourinho that he must start to deliver some promising results and performances or he will find himself under pressure.
Speaking on BT Sport before United’s Europa League clash with Fenerbahce on Thursday night, Hargreaves said: “A point away at Anfield is a good point, especially with Liverpool flying.
“But United are seventh in the league, having spent all of that money and going to Chelsea at the weekend… at some point they’re going to have to start winning games.”
