Bastian Schweinsteiger urges Manchester United to ‘build’ on good display against Chelsea

by Ben Topliss

Bastian Schweinsteiger has urged his Manchester United teammates to “build” on their good performance against Chelsea on Monday.

Man United were much improved against the London club but the game ended in a 0-0 draw, meaning Louis van Gaal’s side have now gone eight games without a win in all competitions.

Schweinsteiger made his return to the starting XI in the game having missed United’s last three matches due to suspension. The German told his United teammates they must “keep working hard”:

Schweinsteiger was solid at Old Trafford, although he faded towards the end of the match along with the rest of the team.

United were better against Chelsea but they lacked the quality in the final third which would have secured all three points.

It remains to be see if Louis van Gaal will remain in charge of United in the coming weeks but the Dutchman can have no complaints if he is let go by the club following such a torrid run. His potential exit would hit Schweinsteiger hard as the pair enjoy a good relationship.
