Fergie: We'll Do Better Than At Anfield

Fergie: We'll Do Better Than At Anfield

Sir Alex promised that there will be no tame surrender from United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday; no meek acceptance of defeat like at Anfield. He's signing the right songs but does anyone seriously believe we can get a result at Chelsea?

'It's always a hard game at Chelsea, but we'll deal with it better than we did at Anfield, I'm sure of that,' he said.

'They're shaping up to be the main challengers. It seems they'll be the ones to get in front of.'

Yes, they're bang in form, scoring for fun, especially at home while we'll be without one of our centre-backs and without our main creative influence, the 36-year-old Ryan Giggs. That he's the most creative player of the season speaks volumes of our current form... I hope we'll get away with a creditable two-goal defeat and it won't turn into a massacre.

You may not surrender meekly, you may even go down fighting - but go down you most certainly will

To tell u the truth Fletch will have a huge say in whether we take anything back to OT or not.We cannot let their mid-field just run over us like barca did and fletcher will have to stop the likes of ballack,lampard,etc.He will have to put in a superhuman effort.

Chelsea IMO are a class above everyone else this season and United are going to see that first hand. Sadly.......it could get ugly Chelsea 3-0. :)

If he plays Scholes and Giggs straight from the off again we will surely lose but otherwise a draw would do nicely and a breath of fresh air from our current poor performances against our biggest rivals for the title would be nice.

chelsea have looked shaky whenever a team has decided to attack them and not let themselves get played out of the game. if united can play for the full ninety minutes then they certainly have a great if not higher chance of winning the game because we all know what they united are like when they play well
