Eric Garcia expects Manchester United to take a different approach in the EFL Cup semi-final.
“Obviously they are very dangerous on the counter-attack because they have really, really fast players,” he said.
“We need to try to avoid that because at the end it could be the key for the game.
“I think we need to play like we always play – trying to attack and playing very high.”
“Recently we’ve been playing teams that really like the counter, especially United, so we need to be careful with the balls that we lose in every single area and try to avoid that and be secure at the back.”
“He’s a player that doesn’t even need a chance to score,” the former Barcelona youth player added. “He’s good with his left and right foot so he’s a player to look out for.”
Pep also had some mixed news on the injury updates at Chelsea.
“In some games [it’s been] good, in some not good, it’s nice to have alternatives, especially for the quality of the players we have,” the City boss said.
“Especially in the back to adapt better, to control the build up, to control better the counter-attacks, to have more passes, that’s the idea.
“It’s a way we can play with the full-backs that we have, especially Mendy, Kyle [Walker], Joao [Cancelo] and Angelino.”
