Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has warned his former club that the race for a top four finish is getting tighter following Chelsea’s revival under Thomas Tuchel.
The Blues are unbeaten under Tuchel, winning four and drawing one in the five Premier League games Tuchel has been in charge.
“If United continue to keep dropping unnecessary points to weaker teams I’m going to be worried for them making the top four,” Berbatov told Betfair.
“When you are challenging for the title it is unacceptable to drop points against the team that is bottom of the table and then the team second bottom of the table.
“Yes, you may drop points against the likes of City and Liverpool, when there is so much quality on the pitch but playing against teams down the table, you have to take the points otherwise you bring lots of problems on yourself.
“United must kick on, because they risk teams catching them and each week the race for a top four spot is getting tighter.”
Only four points separate second-placed Manchester United and fourth placed Chelsea.
