Man United manager geeing up his team for FA Cup tie

Manchester United play Arsenal in the fifth round of the FA Cup this Saturday and United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is rallying his troops to beat their rivals and boost their own . Man United lost 2-1 to city rivals Manchester City last weekend and subsequently fell 5 points behind the Gunners in the Premiership but Sir Alex knows that victory at Old Trafford in the FA Cup would rejuvenate them.

Fergie says:

It has been a quiet training field this week. The derby result had a deep impact on the team – they feel it.

They are genuine players with a genuine desire to do well. But they know they have an uphill fight to win the league. We must ensure we do not drop many more points.”

I think both myself and Arsene Wenger will make changes because we both have massive games ahead.

[But] I am sure it will be a match of great commitment, so fasten your seatbelts.

But something tells you that Fergie will take it even if his team scramble to a win over Arsenal.
