Chelsea winger Florent Malouda can't wait to take on Manchester United in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday.

The Blues closed the gap at the top of the league to three points with victory over Tottenham Hotspur, while United were beaten by Arsenal at The Emirates Stadium.

And heading into this weekend's match-up, which could see Chelsea top to the table with a win at Old Trafford, Malouda is ready to deal with the pressure.


"We were third and wanted to be ahead of Arsenal by winning all of our remaining games," he said.

"All we could do was win all our matches and hope United dropped points to let us back in the title race. That is what's happened and now it is down to details in the big games.

"In these games, there is a lot of pressure but it is in the big games that you see our players' character. We enjoy these games. We have to make sure we play at our best level."

Chelsea's resurgence has seen them overhaul a 12-point deficit with three league games remaining, and within three wins of winning their fourth Premier League crown, and their second under Carlo Ancelotti.
