Jamie Redknapp sends warning to Chelsea about ‘buzzing’ Man United
The Liverpool legend expects Manchester United to be in high spirits heading to Chelsea next weekend
Jamie Redknapp has warned Chelsea that Manchester United will travel to Stamford Bridge next weekend with a spring in their step following a 1-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur.
The Red Devils welcomed Spurs to Old Trafford in search of a first Premier League win in October following a return of one point in their last two fixtures.
Manchester United adopted a conservative approach to secure a point in a dour goalless draw with Liverpool at Anfield before a shock 2-1 loss to promoted side Huddersfield Town at John Smith’s Stadium.
The Red Devils started the weekend five points behind leaders Manchester City but level on points with third-placed Tottenham Hotspur.
Anthony Martial’s second-half winner secured a 1-0 win against Spurs and moved Manchester United three points clear of the north London outfit in the table.
Chelsea will host Manchester United in west London next weekend as Jose Mourinho renews his rivalry with his permanent successor at Stamford Bridge, Antonio Conte.
Former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder Redknapp believes the Manchester United camp will be in high spirits heading to the defending champions next weekend.
“It was never going to be vintage after losing to Huddersfield,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.
“This is a huge result for them. They can really build on it. The training ground will be a different place.
“Jose will be buzzing. Man United squad will be buzzing.”
Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season but won the League Cup and the Europa League.
