HIGHLY MOTIVATED

Chris Hughton feels the recent loss against Everton is motivation enough as we prepare to step out at the biggest stage in the Premiership.

Chris Hughton feels the recent loss against Everton is motivation enough as we prepare to step out at the biggest stage in the Premiership.

That 2-0 reverse last time out is still fresh in the memory and assistant boss Chris feels memories of that afternoon will drive the lads on at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Its been a happy hunting ground for us of late “ a goalless encounter in the 2004-05 season included the famous Pedro Mendes goal while last seasons 1-1 draw thanks to Jermaine Jenas free-kick was the least we deserved.

"As regards motivation and determination to want to put things right, we certainly dont have any problems there," insisted Chris.

"Old Trafford is a big stage where everyone wants to play “ probably the biggest in the country.

"It always has been and always will be a daunting place to go and play and the thing about United is they havent changed their style of play in recent years.

"They experimented with a system where the one of the front players drops into the left to make it a 4-3-3 as such, but its very much been 4-4-2 and they have been as good as anyone.

"Its always a difficult place to go but they always look to play, always look to attack and on their day they can always score goals.

"In the last couple of seasons weve put in good displays at Old Trafford and we will go there confident of performing well again."
