Manchester United legend Paul Scholes thinks Ole Gunnar Solskjaer side’s excellent away record will hold them in good stead when they travel to face Chelsea on Sunday.
After the Red Devils won against Newcastle last night, Scholes was asked about his former team’s chances at Stamford Bridge next weekend. The former England international says he feels the Blues are pretty blunt in attack and he is confident United will get a result:
“I watched Chelsea yesterday I thought they were okay but they were a little bit toothless in the final third. Look, I think United don’t have that much to worry about with Chelsea. I think they’ll be okay there, especially away from home their record is brilliant.”
It is a bold statement from Scholes but he is right to point out that United have been superb away from Old Trafford this campaign. They have yet to be beaten on the road, having won eight and drawn four of their 12 matches so far.
In contrast, Chelsea have only won half of their home games this season, having drawn four and lost two. Of course, things have changed since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel as manager but United should head into Sunday’s match with a great deal of confidence.
