Manchester United beat Tottenham to reach FA Cup final

Manchester United beat Tottenham to reach FA Cup final

Moving aside, Manchester United progressed to the FA Cup final after their 2-1 comeback win over Tottenham Hotspur at the Wembley and they now have a final date versus Chelsea next month which Mourinho will relish the most - owing to his past association.

Spurs are a better footballing team than United, they are nicer to watch and Pochettino has done an admirable job but that does not win you any trophies.

According to Goal, Jose said: "We are going to invest the basic to improve our squad".

"We are close but so far away".

"At the moment, it's hard to believe but we need to keep on going, keep on pushing, working and learning from these kinds of games".

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino played down the importance of winning his first silverware as a coach beforehand, claiming it "wouldn't change their lives".

Paul Pogba's form has been up and down just like his team this year.

And his cross was inch-perfect for Alli to apply the finishing touch for his 13 goal of the season. "We let ourselves down, it's very disappointing".

"We're getting used to being in finals", Herrera said.

Pogba was signed by Mourinho for a then-record £89.3 million from Juventus in August 2016 to return to Old Trafford for a second spell.

"When I don't win, you kill me, " said Mourinho, whose team reached the May 19 showpiece by beating Tottenham 2-1 at Wembley on Saturday. For example, minutes later, Pogba sent the ball into the box from out wide.

Kane had the first chance of the second period, but saw his shot blocked behind by Chris Smalling as Spurs again started on the front foot. More squad rotation earlier in the campaign would surely benefit them at the business end.

Pochettino now faces the task of lifting his players for the final four league games of the season.

Mauricio Pochettino has been criticised for picking Michel Vorm over Hugo Lloris for Saturday's FA Cup loss to Man United.

They have failed to secure the Premier League, instead losing out to local rivals Manchester City. We have to try and pick ourselves up and finish the season strongly. But maybe next we will provide the possibility to play with kids and I'm sure it will be fantastic for experience and everything. "They have the same respect, I think, for Chelsea's story and my story".
