Manchester United veteran Ryan Giggs has admitted that visit to face the League leaders Chelsea at their home will not be an easy task when the two sides meet on Sunday.
The Welshman believes United need to showcase their best performance in order to get a result when the two side meet. Giggs was in full praise for the Blues new summer signings Eden Hazard and Oscar who has settled in their position with their new club in no time.
"Sometimes new players settle in straight away and that seems to be the case at Chelsea. They've got off to a great start this season, particularly in the league. We're going to have to play well if we're going to get a result” Giggs said while speaking to Sky Sports News
"I don't know if they're the real deal but what they have got is that experience and the know-how of how to win a league. Obviously, having added to the squad like they have done, they're going to be right up there this season, no doubt"
The 38-year-old went on to praise Chelsea’s manager Roberto Di Matteo and also claimed Di Matteo's men wil challenge United and City for the prestigious Premier League title after last season’s success with Champions League and FA Cup.
"Come the crunch, if they're there or thereabouts, they've got the experience like ourselves, like probably City now, to go all the way. I expect them to be up there at the end of the season.
"I think it is a different sort of Chelsea team. In past years they've had Didier Drogba's power and the runs through from midfield of Frank Lampard. We've always thought of Chelsea as a big, strong, powerful team.
"They've still got that but they've added the likes of Oscar and Eden Hazard, and Juan Mata is into his second season and coming along nicely. They've got clever players who can play in the pockets and make it difficult for teams"
United’s clash against Chelsea will be one of the important games in this season race to clinch the Premier League title. Sir Alex Ferguson and Di Matteo’s side will meet in less than a week in two different competition and both the managers will be looking for nothing less than a win.
