Fletcher: Pressure on Chelsea

Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher believes all the pressure is on Chelsea as the Premier League title race reaches its climax with just three games to go.

The Red Devils star made the claim ahead of the weekend clash with Tottenham Hotspur, where a win will propel Sir Alex Ferguson's men back to the top of the league, for a day at least.

Chelsea face Stoke City at Stamford Bridge a little more than 24-hours later and Fletcher is hoping a win over high-flying Spurs will put the pressure back on their rivals.

Speaking to reporters, Fletcher said:"They are the team with the pressure because they are the team that's leading the league.

"All the pressure is on them and we just have to take care of ourselves.

"I think they have been in a position where they felt they could have pulled away and been in a real strong position, but they're not, so from that point of view all of the pressure is on them."
