Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi has said that his team are up for the challenge of facing Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-finals.
The Seagulls are having a fantastic campaign this season and have the chance to make the FA Cup final for the first time since 1983 and De Zerbi spoke to the media yesterday about the feeling of facing the Red Devils on Sunday.
“If we want to progress, we have to play naturally.
“We cannot suffer – perhaps we have to love the pressure of the game. If you want to improve, you have to play these types of games. To speak about things like the Europa League, we have to compete in order to become bigger.”
"We have to compete to win the trophy"

With Manchester United having been knocked out of the Europa League by Sevilla on Thursday, De Zerbi and Brighton will have plenty of confidence that they can take a huge scalp and book their place in the final of the world’s oldest cup competition in May.
