Chelsea beat Manchester United 4-0 at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season, and it’s a scoreline that both sets of team haven’t forgotten in a hurry.
Manchester United defender Chris Smalling had a day to forget against Chelsea, and has urged the fans to forget about that disaster.
“In hindsight, it was probably not the game I should have played in,” Smalling said.
“But as a player you try to push yourself and force yourself to play in all sorts of games.
“That was a big one and I am a player who doesn’t want to miss those games.
“In the lead-up to that week, we had drawn with Liverpool and won in Europe too, so we were starting to build up momentum.
“Then that game at Chelsea completely knocked us – it was definitely one of our worst performances of the season. But from then on we have kicked on and done a lot better.
“I think we all learned a lot of things from that game and, not only do we have progress in this competition to play for, we also have our pride as well.”
