Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come out to say that the FA Cup semi-final gives his team the chance to forget about the race for a top-four EPL finish briefly.
He recently revealed that his players will be able to enjoy themselves in the game without the pressure of the league in the cup competition.
According to him, his boys need to find the right temperament going into the clash since it is a good opportunity to reach a final this season.
He added that it is impossible to focus on 2 competitions at the same time especially with the busy schedule Mufc is presently dealing with.
His words, “I think a semi-final is a one-off. We’ve just got to find the right temperament going into the game because it’s an occasion to enjoy and it’s a chance to go to a final.
“We’ve done well to get this far and we’ve got nothing to lose really. I just want them to go out there and enjoy the game. Of course, it’s going to be a tight game, we know all about Chelsea.
“We’ve played them so many times this season and they’re a good team, but we’re so close now to the final and I know that the boys are looking forward to it.”
“You can’t focus on the one after, this is the one.
“You can’t think I’ll save something in the tank for Wednesday because suddenly that momentum you have might swing against us.
“Of course, we felt disappointed after the Southampton equaliser in the 96th minute, but they reacted well and got back on their feet and got a great result against Crystal Palace. This is one to take your mind off the league and just go and enjoy it.”
On Shaw, “Luke will be out, I can’t see him recovering,”
“Brandon will hopefully be okay, he’ll try to join in training today, [despite] his eye.
“We’ll see if he can see the ball when he comes in! He should be fine.”
