It'll be the end of the world if we don't win this now. :lol:

It would indeed be pretty bad. I mean, they still have great players like Pogba, Mkhitaryan, Mata, etc that'll play but if we lose to a side at home in a huge cup tie that may have Fellaini or Jesse Lingard up top it would be shameful.

I'm the well known pessimist around these parts but even I'm very confident about this one. Our boys will be so up for it and the whole football world will be watching this.

Mourinho's teams shine when they are the underrated underdogs. Whoever is on the pitch tomorrow they will all play like rabid dogs.

If Mata scores... :rant:

Mourinho has succeeded in making his team the underdog. I honestly think they're bluffing. One of Rashford/Martial will play.

Remember that Mourinho made Eto'o look like Roberto Carlos when he had him playing as a LB.

It doesn't matter who's not available for them. Those who are available, will give their best against us and considering our last few games against so-called weak opponents (Burnley, Swansea and others) it's not gonna be that easy.

I think it's essential for our players to be 100% determined and focused on the game and on the opponent's name, not on the name of the players. Man United is Man United, no matter if Fellaini or Zlatan plays up front.

Come on, Chelsea!

Anyone thinking that United have given up or this will be a walk in the park ... then you dont know Mourinho.

If the front line strikers are not in the team, then rest assured there will be 10 men defending for their lives and they will use Fellani upfront to exploit our weakness. If everything goes as plan for them, all they need is that one moment of madness, one counter, one header. Chelsea will need to be smart, break their confidence/belief as early as possible and forget the 4-0 beating while on the field ... no place to be complacent.

2-1 ain't really smashing them, is it mate? :P

I'm hoping for another 4-0!

Last thing we need is to be cocky.  Any win will do it for me.

They will be out to pay for that 4:0 defeat and I think this game will be anything but walk in the park like last one was. 

Its a common mistake from fans to compare with last match, becuase this one will not be another 4:0 rout for us.

Considering this is not a PL game, Conte might do one or two changes in lineup and play bit more attacking than we do in the league, but since its still quite far in cup, I dont expect all out tactic either. We play at our stadium which should be main advantage and if we get this right, we will win but not by much, its a derby afterall.

I just hope that most of our players will be up for it just because it's Jose on the other side like the 4-0 win. And the missing strikers thing makes me more nervous tbh, he thrives on chaotic situations.

If Mourinho's mind games have come to spreading false rumours about Martial and Rashford being injured, then I feel sorry for him.

What's next? Making Mata wear a mask so we think that he's a youngster?

Remember how many times we were with our backs to the wall with Mourinho and came out winning. Don't think it's in the bag already. Given the absentees, Mourinho has an excuse now to go with a more defensive XI, which at the end can make our life harder, especially if they will score first.

Here's a link can you name the players from Mourinho's first game in 2004 against Man United. I got 94% I didn't get Eric so shit they named him twice Djemba Djemba wrong and another non entity whose name I've already forgotten :D

We got a couple of bad memories against the Rags in the cup butl I'm totally up for this. Not decided on shirt to wear yet. Maybe even Eto'o with his hat trick against them (no matter how he got them)

I just want to send them home crying with rasge and sadness. Its getting to the point I detest them to the same level I do the north London lot in red.

With Ibra Martial and Rooney out it looks like Rashfords in. And as media reports he wasn't on the train to begin with he was spotted getting on at Macclesfield! Now I like the lad and I'd rather Rooney be playing.

 

Where’s Marcos Rashford? Rumours spread before Chelsea v Man United

So much about players they're missing..should be a simple win but never goes that straightforward when teams are written off before its started..it's not like they're a bunch of players who are just starting out so we need to go for it from the start and not underestimate and volia!
