Chelsea play host to Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening, after Tuesday’s Champions League tie with Atletico Madrid.

Manchester United have some tough games coming ahead, with many teams fighting to finish in the top four as the season draws to a close.

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes, believes his former side should get the win over Chelsea this weekend, and he even labelled Chelsea’s attack as toothless.

Asked if United’s upcoming games – starting with Chelsea – will define their season, Scholes told BT Sport: “It will yeah, but you’ve got to play these teams if you’re going to be successful – and you’ve got to beat them.

“They have really struggled in big games.

“Chelsea away, I watched Chelsea yesterday I thought they were okay but they were a little bit toothless in the final third.

“Look, I think United don’t have that much to worry about with Chelsea. ‘I think they’ll be okay there, especially away from home their record is brilliant.

“The one game there obviously you worry about is Manchester City [on March 7]. They’re playing so well, 10 points clear at the top of the league, such a brilliant squad of players in fine form.

“That will be tricky, but they’re capable of doing it. I look at the other games I think they’re capable of winning all of them.”
