Mark Bosnich has warned his former side Manchester United that their Champions League hopes are over if they lose to Chelsea in their upcoming Premier League encounter.
United’s goalless draw at home with Wolves just before the winter break leaves them six points behind the Blues.
They’re currently eighth with just 35 points from 25 matches.
In their first game after the winter break, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side travel to Stamford Bridge next Monday as the battle to secure Champions League football next season intensifies.
And Bosnich believes the clash carries huge significance.
The ex-goalkeeper told Sky Sports: “I don’t think it’s win or bust but you could lean towards it being lose or bust.
“I think it’s a must not lose. The gap will be a little bit far to catch up if they lose, but not win or bust no.
