  • Jose Mourinho rages at Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera during Man Utd vs Tottenham

Ander Herrera's victor sent Manchester United into a record-equalling 20th FA Cup final and condemned Tottenham to their eighth successive defeat at this stage of the competition.

Goals from Alexis Sanchez - who had his best game in a United shirt - and Ander Herrera gave the Red Devils a 2-1 win after Dele Alli had put Spurs ahead early on.

Spurs remain five points clear of fifth-place with four league games to play and Pochettino urged his team to keep going and guarantee Champions League football for their new stadium next season. We have been there and competitive but to win a trophy is not easy'. "We all have to stay calm and prepare for the final properly".

Ander Herrera insists Manchester United must not get carried away with the Emirates FA Cup semi-final victory over Tottenham Hotspur and has called on the squad to "prepare properly" for the final.

North Korea suspends nuclear and long-range missile tests
North Korea says it has suspended nuclear and long-range missile tests and plans to close its nuclear test site. Thank goodness Kim Jong Un and North Korea never did so, seemingly stepping towards diplomacy in recent months.

By contrast, a record eighth consecutive FA Cup semi-final defeat for Spurs ensured their decade-long wait for a trophy continues.

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

"The players were all very good and when they are all good the team is solid and we can play against any team including Spurs, who are one of the top teams in Europe", he added.

But he was punished by one lacklustre moment, losing possession to Pogba, who went on to provide a sublime assist for Sanchez to score the equaliser.

Liverpool missed a chance to considerably stretch its advantage over Tottenham in one of Saturday's two league games.

Jays' Biagini to start Game 2 of doubleheader
And it may mark yet another weather-related hurdle for the Jays, who had games in Cleveland rained out both Saturday and Sunday. Toronto (11-5) has now won three straight and six of seven while Kansas City (3-12) has lost seven straight.

"I am happy with the performance and the effort, it was an even game, in my head a little bit more for us".

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 it seemed an nearly half-hearted backing as United had reduced the "home" side to a nervy and punchless outfit who couldn't produce the kind of comeback that the Reds are famous for.

Jose Mourinho has demanded Manchester United fans to be "better" at Old Trafford. As Chelsea and Manchester City can report, being behind against high-end opponents does not overly phase this United team, even when they are seemingly dazed and punch-drunk on the ropes.

Mourinho said Pogba had shown what he is capable of in Wednesday's 2-0 win at Bournemouth after being substituted just four days earlier in a shock 1-0 home defeat to West Bromwich Albion that handed Manchester City the Premier League title.
