The consistency shown by Manchester United lately has made rivals even more anxious, including Chelsea. In fact, coach Frank Lampard himself admitted that MU has now begun to be a threat to his troops.
Chelsea are currently ranked 4th, but they cannot relax because of the pressure began to appear a number of teams at the bottom, including Manchester United.
In that position, the Blues collected 57 points from 33 Premier League matches, aka only one point behind Leicester City which is ranked 3rd. But on the one hand, there is Manchester United in 4th position which is only two points behind.
In other words, Chelsea could be displaced from the top four if they let their guard down. Even a small mistake can have a big impact on the Blues now, because Manchester United are in a positive trend.
Coach Frank Lampard could not dispute that fact, he admitted that Manchester United did appear impressive recently.
“They are the closest, they are a very strong team, they are showing great performances for a long period. They have a lot of very good individual players, “said Lampard at Chelseafc.com.
Lampard lauds the quality of the attackers possessed by Manchester United who can score goals. However, the interpreter believes that there are always surprises in the Premier League.
“You have seen how they gain momentum through their three attackers, all can score goals, many goals.”
“They are the biggest threat from behind, but this is the Premier League. It might look like that today, but in the end it is a matter of how each team ends the season.” He said.
For information, Manchester United has gone through 16 matches (including before the postponement due to the Corona virus pandemic) without being defeated. 14 of them were won by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops are eyeing the last four of the final standings since the start of the season. In fact, the Norwegian coach confirmed that his team’s target is to finish in 3rd place, which is currently only three points adrift.
