Chelsea’s Florent Malouda is looking forward to Sunday’s Premier League clash between the Blues and the Red Devils. The Frenchman believes it will be a test of character for all the players as they deal with the pressure of the potential title deciding game.
Chelsea have made an unlikely come-back in the second half of the season after being 18 points adrift of the top spot at one point.
Malouda told the Daily Mirror: “All we could do was win all our matches and hope United dropped points to let us back in the title race. That is what’s happened and now it is down to details in the big games”.
He added: “In these games, there is a lot of pressure but it is in the big games that you see our players’ character. We enjoy these games. We have to make sure we play at our best level”.
Malouda is Chelsea’s top forward this season with 13 goals. He is hopping to add to that before the season is done in order to help his club retain the Premier League. He said: “I’m pleased because there are only three games left in the season and it means I’m an important member of the squad if I am the top scorer”.
There are however still doubts about Malouda’s future at Chelsea as Roman Abramovich and the Chelsea management are looking to bring in younger players to freshen up the squad.
