Fletcher takes every Man Utd game as it comes

Darren Fletcher is refusing to take seriously his new tag as Manchester United's "big game player". Fletcher returned to action after a month's absence with an ankle injury against CSKA Moscow on Tuesday night, just in time for Sunday's crucial Premier League showdown with Chelsea.

But Fletcher insists he is not taking them too seriously.

"I take the compliments with a pinch of salt," he said.

"I enjoy these matches as much as anyone and I put pressure on myself to perform more than anyone does.

"The challenge of playing against the top-class players that Chelsea have is one I look forward to and I will be doing my best to win the match.

"But I am not going to make-or-break a games like this."
