Martinez: No gifts from Latics

07 May 2010 - 09:17:07

Manager Roberto Martinez has promised Manchester United a strong Wigan Athletic performance against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Chelsea will be crowned Premier League champions at the expense of United with victory in their final game of the season.

The Latics have little to play for having already secured their top-flight status for another season, but Martinez has dismissed suggestions that his players could roll over and hand the title to the Blues on Sunday.

"A strong performance at Stamford Bridge is an important way to finish the season," declared the Spaniard.

"We are not going to just turn up and be another team at Stamford Bridge.

"We will approach it in a manner where we want to hurt Chelsea on the day.

"It is going to be difficult but the players have huge belief that we can go to Stamford Bridge and make things very, very difficult.

"Mentally we are prepared to go there and do as well as we can."
