Ahead of today’s FA Cup game against Manchester United, the Blues have lost thrice this season against Manchester United.
Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma insists the defeats to Manchester United are in the past and have warned United that Chelsea are eyeing victory in today’s encounter.
Zouma told Chelsea’s official website: “There were different circumstances in those games. Football is football – they won three times and we cannot afford to lose another time but it’s a different game.
“It’s a semi-final so it doesn’t matter what happened in the past. Everything happens on the pitch and we will try to do our best out there.
“They have some great players but they will have to be defensively on form as well because we have players up front who can hurt them too. It’s going to be a great game, a big pitch and big stadium, even if there are no fans to enjoy it.
“We’re prepared for a tough game but the motivation is there for us. It’s going to be difficult but we want to win and we’re going to do everything we can to win.”
