Maguire sends stern warning to Tuchel ahead of Chelsea vs Man Utd

Captain Harry Maguire wants his Manchester United side to spoil Thomas Tuchel's honeymoon period at Chelsea on Sunday.

The two Premier League giants go head to head at Stamford Bridge with the Blues in fine form.

Since Frank Lampard's dismissal, Chelsea have won six from a possible eight games under Tuchel – including a vital away victory in the Champions League over Atletico Madrid in midweek.

The Blues are now only two points behind fourth-placed West Ham, with a game in hand, as they look to get next season's Champions League hopes back on track.

But United will be stiff competition. A win over Newcastle and progression past Real Sociedad in the Europa League mean they're high in confidence going into the fixture.

And Maguire, who was rested on Thursday, certainly fancies his side's chances.

"Obviously, Chelsea's going to be a tough game but we went there last year and won and we'll be looking to do that again," Maguire said.

"They're keeping their position very nicely and build up really well and not conceding many goals, so it's a good start (for them). We're hoping to spoil that.

"It's a great reaction (to the change of manager). They're a great group of players with tons of talent and the money they spent in the summer, they're starting to gel, starting to tick, but we've got to look at ourselves, first and foremost.

"We go into the game full of confidence, full of belief. We'll make sure we play to the ability of what we're capable of and go and get the three points."
