Because less players equal more space to pass and move


Manchester United midfielder Ji sung Park has said that there are occasions when Manchester United fans simply expect too much from their side because of the past success.

Manchester United are one of the most successful English clubs around. They have lifted a record 19 domestic league titles in addition to the three Champions League titles as well.

They trail only Liverpool in terms of the number of Champions League titles, thus making them one of the most successful English clubs around. It is pretty natural that with success comes expectations and Ji sung Park is of the opinion that the expectation around Old Trafford at times is slightly exceeding reality.

Manchester United will be heading to face Chelsea during the weekend in one of the crunch ties. Even though Chelsea certainly do not appear to be challenging for the title anytime soon, Manchester United are currently locked in a battle with arch rivals Manchester City.

Their cross-town rivals managed to comfortably beat their game in hand against Fulham, which means that Manchester United do need to win against Chelsea in order to stay level on points with City. Many United fans, however, are extremely confident of success at Stamford Bridge and are requiring the team to do the same.

"It might be that before we scored a lot of goals and that has a big impact on the fans. Their expectations become too high. Maybe also because we are out of the Champions League and the FA Cup, people think Manchester United is no good. But we can show our strength on the pitch. We are still producing good performances, we are level with Manchester City and can still win the title," Ji sung Park said in the pre-match press conference ahead of the match with Chelsea.
