Following Manchester United’s embarrassing 3-0 defeat away to Tottenham Hotspur, Michael Carrick has said that all focus must now turn to our FA Cup quarter-final replay against West Ham.
We are looking forward to Wednesday now and that has got to be the focus. We have got to take what we can from today and move on to a massive game. We all know what that means and it is make or break on the night. It is one we can look forward to and hopefully we can come away with the win and get into the next round.
Juan Mata has echoed these sentiments of Carrick, claiming that Wednesday’s game against West Ham is one of the most important of the season.
I think it’s good to play the next game as soon as possible, on Wednesday, because it allows the team to move on from White Hart Lane and focus completely on the match against West Ham. It’s actually one of the most important games of the season and we can’t afford to feel sad or upset when preparing for it. On the contrary, we must be aware that at the Boleyn Ground we have a fantastic opportunity to make it to Wembley and give our fans what they deserve: a reason for joy this season.
