According to Liverpool legend Jamie Redknapp, Chelsea will be nervous about Manchester United in the race for a top four finish because of the return of Marcus Rashford.

Fourth place Chelsea are ahead of fifth place Manchester United by three points with nine games left to play.

“There are important players coming back,” Redknapp told The Sky Sports Football Podcast.

“If you look at Manchester United right now, they’ve got a young man in Marcus Rashford who is now fit for his team. That’s going to be amazing to have him back for United.

“It’s like a brand new signing – one of the best centre-forwards in the world or wide players, wherever you want to play him. So I think United will look at that and think “we’ve got a real chance”.

“It will be interesting to see the dynamic in midfield, too, with Paul Pogba coming back as well. There’s so much talent in that area now and if you can get that midfield working together then you’ve got a really big chance.

“Teams will be nervous about United. The likes of Chelsea that are already in the top four will be looking over their shoulder.”
