It’s Manchester United at Old Trafford next for Chelsea as we continue our march towards being crowned champions of England.
Chelsea great Pat Nevin believes the Manchester United game will be a big test for Chelsea but he insists having a manager like Antonio Conte to make the team focus will be vital for Chelsea.
“The next game against Manchester United is the focus, hopefully on another sunny, joyful day,” Nevin wrote in Chelsea’s official website.
“We will look around the other results, but the ability of our manager to focus himself and the team on what we have to do has been consummate.
“Forget that there is a little bit of breathing space. By winning we squeeze the breath out of the challengers.
“Manchester United is going to be another tester. Jose’s side have European interests and it is maybe another little bit of luck in our favour that we get them when they have been travelling again, but you have to take advantage of any little breaks.
“The old saying is, make hay while the sun shines. Chelsea appear to be doing just that right now.”
