Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskajer has sounded out the importance of Monday Night’s game against rivals, Chelsea.
The Norwegian is keen to see Chelsea’s lead halved with a win at Stamford Bridge.
“Yeah, a win gives us a three-point gap and, of course, that’s what we’ve got to aim for,” the Norwegian said at a press conference as quoted by the club’s official website.
“We’ve played them twice already this season and done well, but Chelsea are a good team. They are at home, but we’re going to go there to try to win the game.
“We’ve got to, to give us more belief and more hope and give us confidence that we can kick on, because we need to kick on.”
Currently United are six points adrift of Frank Lampard Blues ahead of Monday’s game and a win at Stamford Bridge will cut the gap to three points.
