Chelsea winger Malouda not bothered by Man Utd

Chelsea winger Florent Malouda says there's no reason for them to be concerned with Manchester United.

Chelsea sit on top of the Barclays Premier by a single point over United. The Blues take on Liverpool in the 1.30pm kick-off at Anfield on Sunday followed by United's game at Sunderland at 4pm. Defeat for either team could effectively spell the end of their title chances but Malouda insists United have more to worry about than Chelsea.

"Honestly, I don't care about United," said Malouda. "They are behind us. Why should we look in the mirror and say: 'Oh they are there'? We're under pressure but we like the pressure."

He added: "We are still on top of the league, one point in front of them. We have the League in our hands and we have to make it.

"I think United would like to be in our position and we must never forget that. I would have taken the current position at the start of the season.

"We don't have to care about what United are doing and who they are playing. We just have to stay focused.

"The good thing about our position is that we don't have to think about the other results. If we win our games we will be celebrating after the last one."
