Old Trafford must rise again following Manchester United's deflating Champions League defeat to Real Madrid on Tuesday night.
This Sunday, the Red Devils welcome more familiar foes Chelsea to their home ground in an FA Cup quarterfinal battle.
With the domestic league and cup double still on the line, Sir Alex Ferguson's side will be desperate to prevent a defeat that would potentially wrap up one of the worst weeks in the club's history.
Here is a preview of the game, complete with injury news, projected lineups and match facts.
In terms of injuries and suspensions, Sir Alex has a relatively full squad of players to choose from.
Phil Jones is a doubt for Sunday's game having picked up an ankle injury in a recent clash with Reading, while Paul Scholes and Darren Fletcher remain long-term absentees (via Fantasy Football Scout).
Chelsea will be without Oriol Romeu due to a knee injury sustained last year, but apart from the Spaniard, the Blues are also relatively injury-free.
Phil Jones: Ankle Injury, Doubtful
Paul Scholes: Knee Injury, Doubtful
Darren Fletcher: Illness, Unavailable
Oriol Romeu: Knee Injury, Unavailable
Having somewhat controversially been left out of the starting XI to take on Real midweek, Wayne Rooney is expected to make a return to the Red Devils' lineup against Chelsea.
Last weekend's hat-trick hero Shinji Kagawa is also likely to feature, as is Antonio Valencia following his impressive display vs. Norwich City.
In defence, Jonny Evans is almost certain to start, though who his partner will be is another question altogether.
The one exception may be club captain John Terry, who has spent a good deal of time sitting on the bench in past few weeks for the Blues.
Manchester United: David de Gea, Rafael, Jonny Evans, Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra, Michael Carrick, Anderson, Antonio Valencia, Wayne Rooney, Shinji Kagawa, Javier Hernandez.
Chelsea: Petr Cech, Cesar Azpilicueta, John Terry, David Luiz, Ashley Cole, Ramires, Frank Lampard, Eden Hazard, Oscar, Juan Mata, Demba Ba.
Manchester United: DWWWL
The Red Devils' unfortunate loss to Real was the first real blip in what has thus far been an excellent 2013.
Their FA Cup run has been difficult to date, having to overcome teams from England's top division in every round.
For Chelsea, recent results seem to indicate things are beginning to calm down for Rafa Benitez after a difficult first few months on the job.
Only Manchester City have managed to beat the Blues in their last seven games—a 2-0 loss that proved a closer affair than the final scoreline suggested.
Benitez's side beat Middlesbrough and West Brom 2-0 and 1-0 respectively in their last two fixtures.
Manchester United: Wayne Rooney
All eyes will be on Manchester United's Wayne Rooney on Sunday should he be included on Sir Alex's teamsheet.
The English forward will have the perfect opportunity to silence any doubters and reaffirm his importance to the Red Devils with a prominent performance against Chelsea.
In his last start, he combined with Shinji Kagawa to great effect in and around the box, and will be hoping to do the same this weekend.
Chelsea: Frank Lampard
As his never-ending contract dispute has rumbled on, Frank Lampard has gone about delivering some of his best-ever displays in a Chelsea shirt this season.
The English midfielder has scored an impressive 11 Premier League goals in 20 appearances, the most prolific strike rate of his career.
He will hope to have a significant attacking influence on Sunday's game, making the marauding runs forward that he is renowned for.
The Red Devils' defeat to Real Madrid was their first loss since 6 December, 2012, having gone unbeaten in the intervening 18 games.
Robin van Persie has only scored a single goal since his side's 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in January.
Since Sir Alex Ferguson took over at Old Trafford in 1986, Chelsea have had 18 different managers.
United's loss to Real was the first time they have conceded more than two goals in a game since their 2-2 FA Cup third-round draw with West Ham in early January.
In 113 total appearances in all competitions for the Blues, Fernando Torres has scored only 27 goals.
Chelsea's opponents in FA Cup competition this season have been Southampton, Brentford and Middlesbrough.
At the time of writing, Rafa Benitez's managerial win ratio at Stamford Bridge remains lower than both Luiz Felipe Scolari and Avram Grant.
In the battle for Champions League places in the Premier League, the Blues must still face off against the Red Devils, Tottenham, Liverpool and Everton.
What do you predict will happen when United takes on Chelsea this Sunday?
