Mourinho to ´go serious´ against Blackburn in FA Cup

Mourinho to ´go serious´ against Blackburn in FA Cup

"Chelsea can only think about that because I think they are champions and have nothing else to play for.

I won't be thinking of Manchester United if they lose, I'll be only thinking of Blackburn moving forward".

Following United's victory over Saint-Etienne in the Europa League last week, Mourinho slammed his players for the lack of focus they displayed prior to the match. He said: "When we analyse the game I think we performed very well. We will keep working hard, keep going and now is the decisive moment".

Conway does have experience of taking on another one of English football's most decorated teams during his time at Blackburn, having featured in the quarter-final against Liverpool in April 2015.

"Sometimes people forget he is only a young player with a lot to learn but I like the player and I like the boy".

After Lincoln City and Millwall both stunned Premier League opposition in Saturday's games, could there be another shock?

The FA Cup draws have been held, and made public, with still two more slots to be determined in the quarter-finals. No, I'm going to change a few players, obviously. We now have to show that display week in, week out in the Championship.

Mourinho said he did not know whether captain Wayne Rooney, midfielder Michael Carrick or playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan would make the trip to Ewood Park.

Mouirnho won the FA Cup once in his first spell at Stamford Bridge, but has admitted he was guilty of prioritising other competitions during his first season in England. Plus it is one thing to play at Old Trafford but it is another thing to go away.

The attacking midfielder scored in Manchester United's 4-0 win against Championship side Wigan Athletic in the previous round and Mkhitaryan was influential at Ewood Park on Sunday afternoon.
