Paul Merson: ‘I know how Manchester United can beat Chelsea’


Merson says Manchester United can beat the Blues on Sunday by attacking the flanks and keeping their bottle.

However, Chelsea have beaten Manchester United twice this season already.

And judging by the Blues performance against the Red Devils this season, I can seen them making it a hat-trick on Sunday.

Paul on the other hand believes United can take three points at Old Trafford this weekend.

“The only team that have really shown how to beat their system are Tottenham, which was because Chelsea had played quick games in succession. The way they play with wing-backs, it’s hard to do that without a break,” Merson said.

“The way I’d play would be like we used to at Arsenal when we played that system, with one up front and two out-and-out wingers, then the wingers stay wide and don’t track back.

“That way you’re either asking the central defenders to come out wide, where the likes of Gary Cahill don’t want to go, or make their wing-backs come back into a five, reducing their threat and giving Eden Hazard and Pedro less support.

“That’s what Manchester City did and they had a lot of the game but just couldn’t grind out the result.

“It’s obviously not easy to do that but I think you’ve got to have bottle if you want to beat Chelsea.”
