Phil Neville has encouraged Manchester United to go for the jugular when the Red Devils take on Chelsea in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues are preparing to host Jose Mourinho’s men at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon as they bid to get back to winning ways after their 3-0 loss to Roma in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Manchester United, meanwhile, head into the game in fine form after having secured their place in the last 16 of the Champions League with a 2-0 victory over Benfica at Old Trafford.

Chelsea have already fallen nine points behind leaders Manchester City in the race for the Premier League title this season.

Manchester United are currently second in the table and five points behind the leaders.

Former Manchester United defender Neville was in Rome to watch Chelsea in action against Roma on Tuesday night, and he feels that the Red Devils’ best plan for Sunday’s game would be to go all out attack.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 live, Neville said: “Chelsea don’t look like a team who can play solid football.

“I would play Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku on Sunday because Chelsea are there for the taking. But it won’t happen.”

Chelsea won the Premier League title in Antonio Conte’s first season in charge at the club last term, but the Blues did not have the distraction of European football.
