Chelsea hero Didier Drogba has warned that Manchester United remain a threat, despite the Stamford Bridge club’s undefeated start to the new Premier League season, as reported by the Daily Star.
While the Red Devils have had a questionable start to the campaign after their huge £150 million summer outlay on new players, Chelsea head into Sunday’s game in a weaker position than they have at any point since the season kicked off.
Their main man Diego Costa is out injured, and Loic Remy is a doubt for the clash at Old Trafford, having been forced to withdraw from the Champions League tie against Maribor in midweek shortly after opening the scoring.
Drogba, who returned to the club during the summer, is not convinced that he will play, and youngster Dominic Solanke could be involved after his cameo in the Champions League.
Drogba is also keen to tell his undefeated teammates that Man Utd will still be a threat in Sunday’s tie.
“We are doing a great job and to be able to enjoy these kinds of moments is fantastic. We are lucky and if I play I will feel lucky one more time.
“They are a threat. We know to go there with our belief and our strength, but we also have to know that they’re a good team.”
