Herrera fires Manchester United into #FACup final

Herrera fires Manchester United into #FACup final

Mourinho feels that United were the better team on the day and deserved to book their place in the final, where they will meet the victor of Sunday's semi-final between Chelsea and Southampton. "We have to try and pick ourselves up and finish the season strongly".

It left Spurs suffering more FA Cup semi-final pain and with a losing sequence stretching back to their win in the last four against Arsenal here in 1991 - and Pochettino still without a trophy after four seasons at the club.

"Today we lost 2-1 to Manchester United and we should have won".

And despite being on course to qualify for the Champions League for a third straight season, Pochettino said it was still hard to compete against England's other top clubs. At half-time we spoke - we came back late for the second half because we spoke a lot - and organised ourselves. We can't keep doing this.

"It was calm because we had the feeling it was going to be very hard to lose the game".

Dele Alli had put Mauricio Pochettino's side ahead in the 11th minute, sliding in to convert Christian Eriksen's low cross.

Spurs were stunned and Lukaku fizzed into the side-netting before being comfortably denied by Vorm.

Dutch goalkeeper Michel Vorm has started in every round of the competition so far this season and could be expected to feature again.

And his cross was inch-perfect for Alli to apply the finishing touch for his 13th goal of the season.

"We can close the season in a final and that's a good achievement".

Pogba had an attempt before Dier, substitute Marcus Rashford and Herrera were cautioned as play broke up and United looked to batten down the hatches, which they did successfully.

However, having showed the side of his game that Mourinho detests for Spurs' opener, Pogba demonstrated his combination of physical power and technical ability as he outmuscled Mousa Dembele before delivering a pin-point cross for Sanchez to head home just his third United goal.

"But the only way is to keep going - with me or with another - but the only way is to keep going in this direction".

"I tell Alexis the same (thing) I told Paul a couple of weeks ago", added Mourinho. "If you do the basics then in some games your talent makes the difference".
