Man Utd midfielder Pereira quickly responds to Chelsea Cup draw

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira admits their Carabao Cup draw with Chelsea is a "tough" one.

United booked their place in the draw after squeezing past League One side Rochdale on Wednesday night.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side beat Dale on penalties thanks to a decisive shoot-out save from Sergio Romero following a gruelling 1-1 draw in normal time.

United won away at Chelsea in the FA Cup last season and Andreas Pereira believes a repeat result is possible when they make the trip next month.

"It is a good game, a tough game but we will try for it and try to win the game," Pereira told MUTV after the draw had been made.

It can be done, we will prepare for the game but for now we need to focus on the Arsenal game."

Pereira added: "I think we have to aim all the way, we have to take every game step by step but we are in it to win it."
