Marouane Fellaini and his Manchester United team-mates are approaching the FA Cup quarter-final against Chelsea with confidence rather than apprehension despite October’s chastening loss at Stamford Bridge.
Jose Mourinho’s return to west London started badly and only got worse as the most successful manager in the Blues’ history saw his United side humiliated 4-0.
The Red Devils have lost just twice in all competitions since then and will attempt to exact revenge for the lowest point of the Portuguese’s Old Trafford reign on Monday.
Fellaini started October’s humbling loss but there appears little hangover as the FA Cup holders return to the runaway Premier League leaders.
“It will be a tough game,” the Belgium international said.
“Obviously we lost there a few months ago, but now it is the FA Cup and we will see what happens.
“It will be tight, I think. It is the FA Cup, it is one game.
“They are top of the league, they have confidence, they have great players, but we will show our quality there and see what happens.
“Of course they are confident so let’s go there and see what we can do.”
