Chelsea defender Christensen: We're ready for Man Utd

Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen is excited going into the new season.

Christensen is set to play a prominent role for Chelsea this season after David Luiz's move to Arsenal.

And he believes Frank Lampard's side are in good shape ahead of Sunday's clash with Manchester United.

“We are going into the Premier League with a good feeling. We want to be where we have to be. We are going to be ready. Pre-season is always hard. We have had some difficult games and this was a good test for us.

"It's going to be very difficult on Sunday. We still need a bit more but we have a week to prepare. It's going to be very tough, especially away, but I am sure we will be ready.“
