Chelsea are aiming to beat Manchester United at all cost on home soil on Tuesday. But Red Devils defender Chris Smalling has warned the Blues of Man United’s goal scoring forces.
Chris Smalling is not afraid of Chelsea and he could be included in Manchester United's starting XI for Tuesday's game.
The 21-year-old defender is looking forward to Tuesday’s big showdown against Chelsea at the Bridge with a lot of confidence. The player, who displayed a brilliant performance for the Red Devils against Wigan Athletic last weekend, could be named to face the Blues in London as well.
Following his departure from Fulham, Chris Smalling stands a great opportunity to develop at the very top level and win a trophy as early as this season. In the English Premier League, Manchester United are 4 points clear of second-placed Arsenal while Chelsea are 15 points behind them in 5th position.
As of now, statistics are truly in favour of the Red Devils who have scored more than 60 goals in 27 games – with the last 4 of those coming against Wigan last Saturday. According to Chris Smalling, Manchester United’s goal machine will work itself out one more time against Chelsea on Tuesday.
“We’ve got such a good squad and they’ve got world class strikers like we have too,” Smalling told TalkSPORT.
“But, whoever we face, we will be ready. We’re off the back of a couple of clean sheets and we’ll be confident to let our boys at the front pull them [Chelsea] apart.”
Manchester United have Dimitar Berbatov leading the goals scoring chart with 19 goals whereas Nani and Wayne Rooney have made the most assists in the English Premier League this season. Meanwhile, no Chelsea player is among the 5 top scorers and assists leaders at the moment.
