Harry Maguire says Manchester United will stop the smooth run of Chelsea when United visit Stamford Bridge like they did last season. Though he admitted that Chelsea are a tough team, he stressed that Manchester United will get the three points.
Chelsea have been enjoying a massive turnaround since Thomas Tuchel took over from coach Frank Lampard in January this season. Since he arrived at the Premier League club, the German tactician has not lost any Premier League game.
From January 27 to date, Chelsea have played 6 Premier League games under Tuchel in which they recorded four wins and two draws which have taken them to the 5th spot on the league table.
So far this season, Chelsea have recorded 43 points in 25 games after recording a total of 12 wins, 7 draws, and 6 defeats. They are currently three points below 4th placed West Ham United.
Despite the form Chelsea have been enjoying since Thomas Tuchel became the club’s coach, they will have to defeat Manchester United to prove that their form is not a fluke.
Manchester United have been enjoying a beautiful form as they have been able to drive their way from the mid-table to the top four. They have recorded 14 wins, 7 draws, and 4 defeats. So far this season, United have recorded 49 points in 25 games, 10 points below first-placed Manchester City, and 6 points above Chelsea.
Based on this, Manchester United’s captain Harry Maguire is confident that Manchester United would win over Chelsea no matter how tough the club might be when they meet on Monday at 17:30.
“Obviously, Chelsea’s going to be a tough game but we went there last year and won and we will be looking to do that again,” Maguire said.
“They are keeping their position very nicely and build up really well and not conceding many goals, so it is a good start (for them). We are hoping to spoil that.
“It is a great reaction (to the change of manager). They are a great group of players with tons of talent and the money they spent in the summer, they are starting to gel, starting to tick, but we have got to look at ourselves, first and foremost.
“We go into the game full of confidence, full of belief. We will make sure we play to the ability of what we are capable of and go and get the three points…
“Every three or four days you’ve got to be focused and mentally prepared to go and get the three points.
“You have got to be prepared to keep winning, winning, winning, and finding that consistency to enable us to get to where we want to be. If you want to get to where we want to be, you have got to be consistent.”
So far this season, Harry Maguire has played 25 Premier League games in which he scored two goals and provided an assist. He has played a total of 37 games, scoring 2 goals and providing 1 assist.
