Darren Fletcher ‘fully confident’ Man United can beat Chelsea
Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher insists the Red Devils are relishing their trip to Chelsea on Sunday
Darren Fletcher has warned Chelsea that Manchester United are confident of getting a positive result at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
The Red Devils are currently nine points behind third-placed Chelsea in the Premier League title race, having ended a three-game losing streak thanks to a 2-0 over Swansea on Saturday.
We are fully confident of going down there and getting more of the same
Despite Chelsea picking up 25 points from a possible 30 in their last nine top-flight games, Fletcher feels United can travel to Stamford Bridge and expect to get a result.
“We are expected to win every game and it doesn’t matter if it is Swansea at home or Chelsea away, it is viewed as a disaster if we don’t win,” Fletcher told PA Sport.
“We have been in these situations before and sometimes in bigger games you really come together and it brings out your best performances as well because you are really focused and you are really intent on proving people wrong.
“We will treat it like we do with every other game. We will go to win. We know it is a great challenge going to Chelsea but we can take some confidence from the Swansea game and we are fully confident of going down there and getting more of the same. I think we will be all right.”
