Billy Sharp has described Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final against Arsenal as a 'big, big game', despite the last-eight being played behind closed doors.

And the skipper is urging his team-mates to ensure they are 'right at it' against Mikael Arteta's Gunners, as United bid to make the last four of the most famous domestic cup competition in the world.

United took four points from the two league games against Arsenal this season, but Sharp acknowledged the quality Arteta has within his ranks, a case proved by their 2-0 victory at Southampton on Thursday evening.

The Blades captain also believes the weekend encounter on home soil gives the players the ideal chance to 'pick themselves up off the floor' after recent losses against Newcastle and Manchester United.
