Alex Ferguson has it on his mind. This is what he said yesterday:
"The way to look at it is that we've got great games coming up. It will be really exciting going to Madrid and having them here. There's the FA Cup tie at home to Fulham. It's a brilliant period for the club. This is exactly the situation you want to be in, involved in everything. FA Cup, league, European Cup. Absolutely brilliant. And we've got the squad to do it. If you go back to the year we won the treble we got a replay against Chelsea and won there 2-0. We got a replay against Arsenal. The FA Cup's the FA Cup. You expect the unexpected, but you also want to win it because its a great competition."
Patrice Evra also believes that Manchester United are good enough to win the Premier League, Champions League and the FA Cup this season.
"I'm really confident this year, because we've won against City, we've won against Chelsea, we've won against Arsenal, now we've beaten Liverpool twice. For our confidence, you couldn't get much better."
Manchester United 2 Liverpool 1. Old Trafford, Sunday Jan 13th, 2013.
Entertaining game, if of slightly lower quality than you'd hope for a Manchester United v Liverpool game. United were in charge of the first half but a Sturridge-led Liverpool were massively improved after the break. Let us collectively take our hats off for Brendand Rodgers for sorting his side out at half time. Let us also take off our hats for United hanging on to a precarious lead. And for their strikers, RVP and Welbeck, who were both great.
"I still have a great feeling of friendship and love for them, they are a team that have done a lot for my career. The fans know me well and I have a lot of friends there that I keep close to my heart. But now I'm defending Real Madrid's colours. It's a bit of a sad feeling I guess. But I want to score, and for us to win, and that would make everything better."
