Manchester United told not to worry about toothless Chelsea. Manchester United play Chelsea next in the Premier League

Following our 3-1 victory over Newcastle United on Sunday, our next Premier League game is a visit to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea.

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has branded Chelsea as ‘toothless’ ahead of our visit to Stamford Bridge and does not expect Manchester United to have any problems against Chelsea.

United take on Real Sociedad in the second leg of our Europa League last-32 tie on Thursday and then travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Asked if United’s upcoming games – starting with Chelsea in the league – will define their season, Scholes told BT Sport: “It will yeah, but you’ve got to play these teams if you’re going to be successful – and you’ve got to beat them.

“They have really struggled in big games.

“Chelsea away, 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.

“The one game there obviously you worry about is Manchester City [on March 7]. They’re playing so well, 10 points clear at the top of the league, such a brilliant squad of players in fine form.

“That will be tricky, but they’re capable of doing it. I look at the other games I think they’re capable of winning all of them.”
