Tonight, Manchester United have the chance to get back to winning ways when they take on Chelsea in a FA Cup fifth-round tie, at Stamford Bridge.
Everything seemed to be going swimmingly well for Ole Gunnar Solksjaer until, last week, Paris Saint-Germain came to town.
Unbeaten approaching that fixture, since Solksjaer took over form Jose Mourinho, Manchester United suffered their first defeat, being beaten by a French side that were without two of their main strikers, Neymar and Cavani.
Ahead of what could be an epic tie tonight, Solksjaer has spoken about that night and also what is required tonight, remarking, as reported by the BBC,
“You have to bounce back at this club. You’ll always have challenges, and away against Chelsea is one of the tougher challenges.
“We know there was a spell against PSG – seven, eight, nine or 10 minutes – where we lost our way a bit. But apart from that, we weren’t too bad defensively.
“We need to keep working on the way we want to play football – the way we approach the games will always be in an attacking, positive mind.”
I fancy Manchester United to do the job tonight. Chelsea have looked lacklustre in recent weeks, although they do sometimes raise their game against us.
If the side can negate the challenge Eden Hazard presents, revenge for that 2018 FA Cup Final defeat could be ours.
