Man United takes aim at Chelsea

Manchester United aims to bounce back from its Champions League exit when it faces defending FA Cup champion Chelsea in the domestic knockout competition on Sunday.

Coach Alex Ferguson's team, currently EPL leaders, has concentrated its firepower on bigger prizes since last lifting the FA Cup for a record 11th time in 2004 when they beat Millwall.

But knocking out Chelsea, which has won the FA Cup four times in the last six seasons -- including the 2007 final when Chelsea beat United -- would be some consolation.

"We've still got an FA Cup [game] and we're still in a commanding position in the league. So we'll get over it, we'll bounce back," United assistant manager Mike Phelan said after United's 2-1 home defeat by Real Madrid in which Nani was controversially red-carded. We've had disappointments before and we'll get over this one. We'll come in (to training) and kick on. The players will rally round, the staff will rally round and we'll be Manchester United right the way through until the end of May."
