Former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy has admitted that he would like Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United to play out a draw on Sunday as he is concerned about the Red Devils.

Chelsea beat Newcastle United 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday to move to within one point of Tottenham, who sit third.

Manchester United, who have picked up under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, are sixth and nine points off Chelsea, though they can cut the gap to six by beating Spurs.

The Red Devils also still have to play Chelsea and entertain the Blues at Old Trafford in late April, in what could be a pivotal fixture.

And Cundy, who would like a draw between Tottenham and Manchester United, is concerned about how the Red Devils have improved under Solskjaer.

"I would prefer a draw personally", Cundy said on Chelsea TV following the Blues' win over Newcastle.

"I'd like to get closer to Spurs.

"Spurs are a good team and they're only one point ahead of us at the moment; it could go to four, it might stay that way, it could go to two.

"Personally I would like a draw there because United do concern me a little bit."

Manchester United have won their last five successive games under Solskjaer, with the Norwegian favouring a more expansive and attacking style of football than his predecessor Jose Mourinho.
