Jamie Carragher has stated his belief that Manchester United and Chelsea will be feeling the pressure after a brilliant weekend for The Reds that capped off a brilliant fortnight.

“This will have sent a message out to United and Chelsea,” he said.

“Let’s not kid ourselves, they’d have been watching the game.”

“When you play Real Madrid and Manchester United and score so many goals, you know in the back of your mind that can’t happen every week so to get five against Villa was a magnificent achievement.”

“If we’d have dropped points against Villa, United’s defeat at Fulham wouldn’t have made that much of a difference but we’ve capitalised on it.”

“Now United will realise they are in a fight for the league.”

The defender believes his side have recovered well from a blip at the start of the year to become genuine contenders once again.

“We are maturing and getting used to the demands of fighting for a title,” he said.

“We were there earlier in the season but, having not been in that position before, maybe we didn’t know how to deal with it.”

“We’ve probably found it difficult a few times this season to cope with that,” he added.

“We’re well aware that the title is in Manchester United’s hands, but we’re trying to put them under as much pressure as possible.”
