Paul Scholes is looking ahead to this weekend’s FA Cup game against City and conceded that whoever is on the losing side will be devastated.

Scholes said that his family and fans around the city help hype up the game.

“It is painful,” Scholes said. “I remember going to Maine Road and losing 3-1 and it’s horrible. You hate losing against anybody, but City? But it just makes you more determined. I have family who are Blues and there are Reds everywhere too, so the desire to win is massive. It’s an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley. It’s massive. It’s the biggest game we’ve had against City for a while. Whoever loses will be devastated.”
