Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho in focus

4 Talking Points From Manchester United 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur

But an equalizer 13 minutes later from Alexis Sanchez got the Red Devils on level terms, and Ander Herrera's second-half victor saw the Red Devils come away with the victory and a trip to the final where they will face either Chelsea or Southampton on May 19.

As with a year ago, Spurs had plenty of the ball and carved some decent chances, but, when push came to shove, their rivals found something else in front of goal.

Alexis Sanchez scored United's equaliser against Tottenham.

"Everyone talks. We want to win trophies, we have the staff that want to win".

And Mourinho, whose side continue to sit second in the Premier League behind Manchester City, thinks that his men will be able to look back on a good season if they can win the FA Cup. Chelsea are being fancied to beat Southampton in their semi-final on Sunday and barring a shock, we should witness Antonio Conte managing possibly his final Blues game at the Wembley Stadium next month.

And add to that, Herrera smashed home United's second, making a darting run to the edge of the area to receive a pass from Jesse Lingard and fire brilliantly beyond Michel Vorm for what proved to be the victor.

Pochettino has now suffered a League Cup final defeat and successive FA Cup semi-final losses with Tottenham.

United, however, weathered the storm and were level after 24 minutes.

However, United responded a few minutes later thanks to a lovely assist from Pogba whose cross found Alexis Sanchez that powered in a header from close range to level the scoreline.

Liverpool was in control with 18 minutes remaining thanks to Danny Ings scoring his first goal in 930 days and Mohamed Salah's Premier League record-equaling 31st of the season.

Rather than go back to Manchester after their game on the south coast, the decision was made to stay in London - something that Mourinho feels was crucial to their comeback victory at Wembley. We deserve it. If we split the match into periods we were the best team for many of these periods.

Alli was also denied a second as Phil Jones made a crucial intervention while at the other end Romelu Lukaku headed over after a rare United foray forward. But in the second half they scored the game was competitive. Even after 93 minutes, with the ball being moved to Kieran Trippier at right back, the 29-year-old was there, sprinting at full pelt as if the game were 20 seconds old.

"I think the second half was quite calm because we were with the feeling that it was going to be very hard to lose the game, and most probably we would win it".

Acquiring the assuredness of winners will add another layer to this Spurs team - but until they actually win something then they will always have questions to answer.
