Chris Smalling: There definitely is a desire to win the FA Cup


Manchester United defender Chris Smalling is convinced the Red Devils will not underestimate Preston North End when they take on Simon Grayson's side in tonight's FA Cup action.

After a shocking Capital One Cup exit to the hands of Milton Keynes Dons in August, United kept their focus against the likes of Yeovil Town and Cambridge United in the FA Cup and are ready to do the same tonight according to the 25-year-old.

"It's the story of the underdog," Smalling told MUTV.

"I've played as an underdog before and you play without fear and with nothing to lose. All you can do is go out and do you best.

"We as United players have to make sure we do our jobs and give 100 per cent as Preston will be 100 per cent committed. We need to match that and hopefully let our quality shine through.

"I think the fact that we've already played against lower-league opposition will stand us in good stead for when we go to Deepdale.

"At the end of the day it's a cup game where the winner gets to go into the next round and takes a step closer to the final.

"There definitely is a desire to win the FA Cup this season, especially given the time it's been since we won it.

"Given the draws we've had, we're expected to go through and we're vying that we'll be in the draw. It's another step towards the final; there are only a couple of rounds after this."
