Ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League opener against Manchester United on Sunday, Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen insists the Blues will be ready for United.
While Christensen admits it’s going to be tough against Manchester United, he is certain that the Blues will be ready for United.
“We are going into the Premier League with a good feeling,” Christensen said, according to Chelsea’s official website.
“We want to be where we have to be. We are going to be ready. Pre-season is always hard. We have had some difficult games and this was a good test for us.
“It’s going to be very difficult on Sunday. We still need a bit more but we have a week to prepare. It’s going to be very tough, especially away, but I am sure we will be ready.”
Christensen also talked about Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach. The Blues fought back from 2-0 at halftime to draw 2-2.
“It was a tough first half but we talked in the dressing room at half-time and said we needed a reaction,” said Christensen.
“The reaction was good, the second half was better even if we still weren’t at our best.
“It was difficult to play against, we felt that especially in the first half. It was the same when I was here, they are a young team who want to express themselves. But after talks in the dressing room we found new solutions.”
