Andy Hinchcliffe believes that Manchester United’s main concern will be scoring enough goals to beat Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils have been in solid form in the Premier League in recent weeks but have been criticised for their perceived over-reliance on veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score their goals.

Manchester United head into the game on the back of their 3-0 victory over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light last weekend as they kept their top-four hopes alive.

However, that result followed two frustrating home draws at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

Chelsea are flying high at the top of the Premier League table and are seven points clear of second-placed Spurs heading into this weekend’s round of games.

And Hinchcliffe feels that Manchester United’s main issue will be scoring enough goals to beat Chelsea on Sunday at Old Trafford.

Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Hinchcliffe said: “Manchester United aren’t clinical enough, so the problem will be scoring the two goals that they’ll need to win the game.”
