Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has compared the Chelsea team of 2014/15 to some of Manchester United’s finest teams, including the one he captained.
Robson was captain of Manchester United when the Red Devils won the first Premier League title in 1992/93, Sir Alex Ferguson’s first league title in England and the beginning of United’s dominance of English football from the early 1990s until Sir Alex retired in 2013.
Robson now sees qualities in Chelsea’s current team that reminds him of one of his former club’s greatest eras.
“They’re a bit like United sides from down the years – when you’re not playing well and drawing, then all of sudden somebody does something, scores a goal and nicks all three points. Chelsea have done that this season.”
The former England captain also believes the Blues will not make any mistakes in their pursuit of the Premiership title.
Speaking to Manchester United’s official website, he gave his thoughts on Saturday’s clash at Stamford Bridge:
“If we go to Chelsea and win, then Arsenal get a really good result against them next weekend… all of a sudden there’s a lot of pressure on them. But Chelsea have only been beaten three times in the league, they’re a really difficult side to beat, so I don’t think they’ll slip up enough for anybody to catch them.”
Chelsea are currently seven points clear at the top of the Premiership table and play Manchester United at 5.30 on Saturday evening.
