Manchester United will 'bounce back' against Chelsea, insists Young

After the disappointment of their Champions League exit versus Real Madrid, the Red Devils winger has assured fans that the team is ready to get back to winning ways in the FA Cup

Ashley Young is confident Manchester United will return to winning ways against Chelsea after their controversial Champions League exit against Real Madrid in midweek.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s team face the Blues at the quarter-final stage of the FA Cup and Young, who only featured as a substitute against los Blancos, is adamant that United are desperate to win the “massive game” at Old Trafford on Sunday.

“Of course we were disappointed in midweek, but the club has bounced back many times and that is what we will be looking to do on Sunday. It is a big game but it is a chance to get further in the FA Cup,” he told the club’s official website.

“That is exactly what we are looking to do. We are looking to bounce back and I think you will see that on Sunday. Obviously, when you have a disappointment like we had the other night you want to get the next game straight away.

“We know it is another massive game and everybody will be fired up for the game on Sunday. That would have been the case whether it was league or cup. Everybody wants to get back to winning ways.”

Young also spoke of the high “intensity” that will be showcased against Chelsea, both because of the magnitude of the FA Cup and the rivalry that has developed between the clubs.

He continued: “When you are playing one of the top four, the intensity is going to be higher than normal, the intensity will be even greater with it being the FA Cup.

“We have to go into the game full of confidence with the way we have been playing.

“In midweek, the boys were fantastic. It was a disappointing result but we have to move on from that. I am sure if everyone is concentrating and fully focused, we can get ourselves into the next round.”
