Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez admits Manchester United clash will be ‘very difficult’
Rafa Benitez says he knows his Chelsea side face a “very difficult” task when they face champions Manchester United on Sunday.
The Spaniard is keen to keep up the Blues’ winning ways as the battle a packed fixture list to try to finish in the top four. Chelsea need to avoid defeat against United before next week’s crucial match against Spurs, but Benitez is hoping for three points.
He said: “I think it’s important to show character and keep winning and keep the momentum and so hopefully we can do it. (Manchester) United will be tough, will be difficult. Tottenham (Hotspur) will be crucial for us. So, we know we have difficult games but we have confidence and quality in the team. Hopefully we can do well.
“I think it’s always important to play against good teams. Top sides, top managers. So we will see, hopefully we can do well – we know that it will be very difficult. We will have to see how we are tomorrow and then be ready for Sunday.”
