Manchester United No2 Mike Phelan says there’ll be no problem picking up the players for their FA Cup tie with Chelsea.

Manchester United No2 Mike Phelan says there’ll be no problem picking up the players for their FA Cup tie with Chelsea.

United morale was rock bottom yesterday after their Champions League elimination.

But as Phelan pointed out, United have every incentive in chasing what would be Sir Alex Ferguson’s fourth League and Cup Double to add to those of 1994, 1996 and 1999 — since when they have only won the FA Cup once, by beating Millwall nine years ago.

“We’re in the FA Cup still, we’ve got a great opportunity in the League and I’m sure that will drive the players forward in order to achieve something,” Phelan said.
