Christian Eriksen believes Manchester United on “right path” after draw against Chelsea
Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen believes Manchester United are on the “right path” after the 1-1 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The Red Devils took on the Blues in the Premier League on 22 October (Saturday).
Against Graham Potter’s team, the Old Trafford side struggled to create a lot of opportunities. Chelsea were underwhelming as well. However, the Stamford Bridge side took the lead in the 87th minute with a Jorginho penalty. Only a 94th-minute Casemiro equaliser ensured us a point.
Speaking after the game via the Mirror, Eriksen expressed his disappointment at the result. The 30-year-old was hoping United would build on the 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur. But he feels the team is still going in the right direction.
“Wednesday was a big performance and to top it up today would have been perfect, but we are on the right path to something that’s going to be a lot more fun than where we are”.
“We always aim to be better than what we have, but overall it’s been a good week and we can be proud of what we achieved.”
Against Spurs at Old Trafford, the Red Devils dominated the proceedings. Fred opened the scoring just after half-time and Bruno Fernandes later doubled our lead.
In fans ‘ opinion, United’s performance against Tottenham was the best of the season. However, the Chelsea game was lacklustre. Both teams lacked the cutting edge in the final third.
However, United have come a long way under Erik ten Hag since the start of the campaign. We lost against Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford in our first two Premier League fixtures and sat bottom of the table – a disastrous start to life in England for Ten Hag.
Since then, the Red Devils have found some resurgence and now sit sixth in the league, six points behind champions and rivals Manchester City. Nevertheless, we have done well to claw our way up the table.
