Nani might not have set Old Trafford on fire this season but turned in good performances. He’s expected to start in today’s FA Cup fifth round tie against Arsenal, a game that he believes United can win.

‘We know Arsenal are very strong but everything can change and we are capable of changing it and reversing the situation in the league,’ the Portuguese told the Sun.

‘Adebayor has been an excellent player for them and scored many goals. But we also have many great players and we just have to keep our confidence and we can win the league.’

‘I think our team has better wingers and better forward players. In midfield as well, we have so many more options. Our defence is very settled and we know we can rely on them.

‘We have two big games coming up at home against Arsenal in the FA Cup this weekend and later in the season in the league. And I don`t want anything else but victory in them both.”


I agree with him on all counts but let’s hope our defence will never mess up so badly again as they did on Sunday and that our forward players will return from their apparent two-match absence…
