Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is looking forward to Thursday night’s Premier League clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The two clubs meet in what the German tactician considers to be ‘one of the biggest matches around’ with a rich history formed in previous title clashes.
It has not been a hugely successful season for the two clubs, with Manchester City and Liverpool ahead of them and battling for the title.
They will however be fighting for a top-four finish, with United desperately in need of three points to keep their hopes alive.
“We would love to be and Manchester United would love to be in a title decider but unfortunately there are two other teams in red and blue who have a word to say and over the last years made their point strongly,” he said.

“So we have to accept it and we have to do everything to try to close the gap and Man United do as well.”
“I’m personally very happy to play against Man United at Old Trafford. For me it’s still one of the biggest stages, one of the biggest stadiums, one of the biggest clubs, and occasions to play.
“I arrive with a strong club with a strong team, so this is the best way to arrive as a coach and I’m very happy to have this match and it will always be a big match for me, no matter which position and what current form they are in,”
The two teams go into the match on the back of contrasting results. United lost 3-1 at Arsenal last time out, while Chelsea laboured to a 1-0 win over West Ham.
A win for Chelsea could move them to within four points of qualifying for next season’s champions league, while victory for United will hurl them back into contention for a top-four finish.
