Portsmouth manager confident of FA Cup upset

Manchester United and Portsmouth size each other up in the FA Cup quarter-final this weekend and although most observers would suggest that the Red Devils will win the tie, there is one man who is confident that Pompey can rip the form and Man United with it.

Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp says:

We have got to be positive, that is what we are looking to do.

They are a fantastic team but we have got great away form and have won games away from home, so we have got to be back at our best, but we are capable.

They have got a great squad, he (Sir Alex Ferguson) could rotate a few – look at midweek, Paul Scholes didn’t play and what a player he is, and so bringing him in does not weaken their team

They are full of quality players, that is why they are going great in the league and still have a chance of the Champions League.

Come on, Harry, be practical! With the red-hot form that the Red Devils are in at the moment, they are certain to blow Pompey away at Old Trafford on Saturday.
