Owen Hargreaves believes United can bounce back from the recent disappointing results.

The midfielder was brought on as a substitute during the 2-1 defeat to City at Old Trafford on Sunday but is expected to start against the gooners in the FA Cup on Saturday.

He aims to put in professional performances and acknowledged that the upcoming week might prove crucial in the outcome of our season.

‘I don’t think there’s anyone with their head down,’ he said.

‘The derby game has gone and we’re all professional enough and have been in the game long enough to know there’s a next game.

‘We’ve got to take that opportunity to make things better.’


‘It’s a long season and there are definitely games in a season that are more important than others.

‘Next week is one of those weeks – we’re in three competitions and it’s very important to see what direction we are heading in.

‘But this is why our players are at Manchester United – because we expect to win games. And winning games is what we are going to have to do.’
