Chelsea were drawn to play Manchester United in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup, and you’d trust former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho to react in his usual fashion.

When asked for his reaction to facing his old club again, Mourinho said: “No reaction.

“I have to play Saint-Etienne, I have to play the EFL Cup final, I have to play hopefully another opponent in the Europa League.

“I have to fight for a top-four position in the Premier League. I have so many things to think about.

“Chelsea can only think about that [the FA Cup] because they are champions and they have nothing else to fight for.

“The match is in one month’s time, so I don’t want to think about it.

“We’re going to fight for the FA Cup, but the League Cup is the one we have a 50 per cent possibility to win.

“And the next one is to get a result against St Etienne on Wednesday and be in the last 16 of the Europa League.”

Manchester United haven’t won at Stamford Bridge since 2012, and the last time Mourinho came visiting, he was handed his biggest Premier League loss by his former club.
