United in FA Cup final as Spurs suffer stage fright again

Investment not necessary for United to challenge City – Lukaku

An early Dele Alli goal rocked Manchester United at Wembley, but Alexis Sanchez came to the fore when he provided a fine headed finish from a sumptuous Paul Pogba cross to equalise for Mourinho's men.

Yesterday became the eighth semi-final defeat in succession.

A 2-1 win over Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday booked United's place in next month's FA Cup final, while second place in the Premier League looks assured after Liverpool's failure to beat bottom of the table West Brom.

"Right now I am at Man United and I am thinking exclusively about the present, the FA Cup and the coming World Cup", he said.

"I do not have any problem with Mourinho", Pogba said.

And Etherington, who helped Spurs to a League Cup final in 2002, believes the Argentine boss' reluctance to play his best team, despite behind the scenes politics, was baffling.

Before this game, the 29-year-old had scored just two goals in 13 appearances, with his introduction into the team by Jose Mourinho arguably stifling the progress of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

And that is because following champions Manchester City winning the league, if the winners of the FA Cup have already secured European football (which either United and Chelsea have) then whoever finishes seventh will qualify for the Europa League.

Seven bowlers bowled for CSK and all of them took wickets apart from Jadeja who bowled just one over. "Great comeback from CSK". Karn Sharma got Shakib top-edging to short fine-leg in the 11th over, but Williamson shifted gears from there on.

"To compete in this type of game, I think we are ready to compete - but win is different".

"It's been demanding but we hope to win the final".

Tottenham have now lost eight FA Cup semi-finals in a row and they might look back at some of them and feel they were unlucky.

"But if they have the team they have and are going to invest in the team they have, of course it is going to be very hard for all of us".

"In the big games, the big players tend to turn up".

They will no doubt be eager to return to their usual north London base, in their new stadium next season and Pochettino wants to make sure that the Champions League anthem will ring out through the new speakers.

They have already seen one of their stars, Kyle Walker, leave for Manchester City where he has won two trophies this season. Additionally, United had fewer shots on goal with 12 and Tottenham with 14, but they made more use of the chances they got.
