Chelsea vs Manchester United preview 1st March 2011

The Blues are behind Red Devils with the margin of 15 points. This fixture, 1st march 2011, was supposed to be played in December 2010 but it was postponed due to heavy snow.

What could aid Carlo Ancelotti in his bid to drag Chelsea back into the title race, is the fact that his players will be far better rested than United’s, given that their scheduled fixture with Birmingham City was pushed back, as the Blues played Arsenal in the Carling Cup on Sunday night, winning the trophy in a pulsating 2-1 victory.

“We are very confident at home and the way they [United] play might help us. I’m not sure how they are going to come at us but other teams that have come to the Bridge have sat back and we’ve found it hard to break them down. It’s just a case of winning the game. I don’t care how that comes about. We just have to be up for it. It is a must-win game for us and the fans are going to be up for it. If we can win, who knows, it could put a little bit of pressure on them and the teams around us. We’ve a game in hand over Tottenham as well and with them losing against Blackpool we could get three points and overtake them.”

Chelsea and Liverpool are fantastic teams and obviously they’re desperate to win as well. We know it won’t be easy”
