West London outfit Chelsea will face Man United in the fifth round of the FA Cup amidst their inconsistent performance in recent weeks.

More to it is the fact that manager Maurizio Sarri is unsettled as his job is being liked away owing to the last 6-0 humiliation they suffered against Man City. The Italian boss is obviously under pressure to deliver.

French striker Olivier Giroud has therefore called on his teammates to rally round the Italian boss to ensure they secure a win in the game as he stresses that the season for the West London outfit is yet to be over.

The former Arsenal striker stated that he is used to the situation as he has had to deal with pressure his entire career noting that the secret behind overcoming is for the team to stick together and think collectively.

He noted that his side are not in the best position but that does not mean they do not have the chance to make it against the Red Devils.

However, a defeat for Chelsea will mean more troubles for the former Napoli manager who might be asked to leave as former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is reported to be ready o take up the job.
