Manchester United Keeper Sergio Romero Likely to Miss FA Cup Semi-Final

Winning the FA Cup would be an unbelievable thing for them, and their fans would be ecstatic.

In addition, he also targeted Pochettino's disappointing history of honours in comparison to United's Jose Mourinho, which reads 20-0 in the Portuguese boss' favour. "I don't think it's about need or not need", he said.

"They were really, really strong".

Manchester United make the trip to take on Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium in the semi-finals of the FA Cup with Jose Mourinho aiming to finish the campaign with a piece of silverware.

"Everyone wants to be playing on the weekend and it's down to the manager for that". But I believe we can compete very well next season. He usually gets the job done too.

Both teams are wounded after a mixed week, and both of them have a reason to prove a point.

Spurs are the highest scorers in this season's FA Cup, netting 17 goals in their six games, and in Son Heung-min they have an FA Cup star: he has had a hand in 14 goals in his 15 FA Cup appearances (9 goals, 5 assists) - more than any other player in the competition over the past three seasons. Where Spurs project an image of unity and togetherness - apart from when Harry Kane goes after Christian Eriksen's goals, of course - United are disjointed and disparate, a team of supremely talented individuals who grind and screech against each other on the pitch like oversized cogs in a faulty machine.

You could argue the same for Spurs in some respects because, although they got beaten by a great side in City, they had been on a long unbeaten run [of 20 games in domestic competition] and maybe they were just starting to think they were better than they are.

Yes, Tottenham might be lacking in the trophy department but the fact that years ago they were mere hopefuls for a Europa League spot demonstrates the stunning growth that they have undertaken. "This time is away but I don't see any advantage, for me it's the same as playing at Old Trafford".

Mourinho in particular will have a plan to keep Tottenham quiet, especially because of what happened when they met at Wembley in the league, which was a lesson of what not to do against Spurs.

TEAM NEWS: West Brom will have Jonny Evans and Hal Robson-Kanu back from injury, but Daniel Sturridge won't feature against his parent club. Paul Pogba was threatened with the axe but was much improved against the Cherries and could now retain his place at the national stadium.
