The Man United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is well aware that another loss at Stamford Bridge today, a ground where they haven’t won for ten years, could be very important in the race for the Premier League title.
Man United could end the day seven points behind the leaders if they suffer another setback and the bookies think they face an uphill task and have set the United Odds up at 2/1 or higher to win the game today.
No-one in the Premier League has a better record against United than Roberto Di Matteo’s men, and Ferguson has explained why he thinks Chelsea have performed so well over the decade, despite seemingly changing their manager every year!
Fergie said: “Players who have been at the club for a number of years like Terry, [Ashley] Cole, [Frank] Lampard and [Petr] Cech give them stability,”
“Continuity with their kind of experience must help the dressing room. Terry will be a loss for them because he has been such a dominating figure. He is their captain, he has experience and he can be a ruthless defender.
“His presence a lot of the time was the most important thing for them. You will always miss a player like that.”
Ferguson may be hopeful that Chelsea miss Terry, but I think he will be sorely disappointed as we just like beating United whoever is in the team!
