Hargreaves gearing up for FA Cup showdown against Spurs

Manchester United play Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup fourth round at Old Trafford on Sunday and the Premiership leaders are up for it. Midfielder Owen Hargreaves is one player who is not daunted by taking on Premier League oppositions in the FA Cup and tell the Manchester United official website:

To play at Wembley against one of the top teams would be brilliant. But we will take step by step, focus on Tottenham and take it from there. They have some fabulous players and I think it is just a case of them trying to find the right balance. I look forward to every game and the atmosphere against Tottenham will be exceptional. As it is a home game for us, it becomes a must-win situation.

Man United have a history of performing well at home in the FA Cup and would certainly be itching themselves for a riot. Sir Alex Ferguson takes the competition seriously and after having waved off Aston Villa 2-0 in the last round with a pragmatic but not so romantic display, maybe Fergie would want his team to turn up the style against Spurs in Sunday. But hey, Spurs are no pushovers all right. They demolished Arsenal 5-1 in midweek in the Carling Cup semi-final second leg and manager Juande Ramos would surely be geeing up his boys against the reigning Premiership champions.
