Chelsea welcome Manchester United to Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening, with both sides fighting for a place in the top four.

Ahead of this game, Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has called Chelsea’s attack ‘toothless’, as he backed his former side to come out tops.

Meanwhile, former Chelsea defender, Jason Cundy has pointed that United have a huge flaw, in that they are too reliant on Bruno Fernandes to win their games.

Fernandes has scored an impressive 22 goals from midfield this season, and has been one of the best players in the Premier League since last January when he made the switch from Sporting to United.

Speaking on talkSPORT recently, he said, “If Bruno Fernandes doesn’t turn up, Manchester United don’t turn up… he’s such a good player and he drives them forward.

“You worry for Man United. If there was to be five-six games where Bruno maybe picks up an injury, a suspension or even a lack of form… over the last 12 months he’s been astonishing. United aren’t that great without him.

“You can’t keep coming to Fernandes and say, ‘go on please, give us another goal’, he got the equaliser against West Brom so you need someone else to come up but it doesn’t happen.”
