On Sunday, Manchester United travel to a ground where the home fans haven’t seen a league defeat in an incredible 84 matches. Whilst United like breaking other teams records, namely Arsenal‘s 49 game unbeaten run in 2004, and Chelsea‘s 40 game unbeaten run in 2005, the odds of geting a result at a place where our league record over the past 6 years reads LDLLLD, must be pretty slim.
Wes Brown has today said it’s vital we get something from the game, seemingly happy to take a draw if needsby.
“We are not contemplating them being nine points in front of us,” said Brown. “If it happens then it would be grit-your-teeth time for us. But we are not thinking about that. We just have to get our heads down and start winning. We know how strong Chelsea are at home. They have a great record there but it is imperative we get something out of the game.”
The last time we beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge was back in the 2001-2002 season, winning 3-0 thanks to goals from Paul Scholes, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. We’re due a win, just like the dippers were against us, however our players will really have to click, for the first time so far this season, if we’re to get a result.
Would you be happy with a draw tomorrow?
