London stay was crucial to FA Cup Wembley win - Mourinho

22 April 2018, 01:33 | Susie Olson

"I think it will be a typical cup game at Wembley - half Tottenham and half Manchester United".

United lost on their league visit to Spurs this season after falling behind to an early goal and it looked like Mauricio Pochettino's side could repeat the feat when Alli turned home Christian Eriksen's cross.

"The most important thing now is to finish in the top four, play again in the Champions League for the club".

On Friday, Pochettino insisted the club did not need to win trophies to reach "the next level", but has since changed his tune. "Sure it will be a very successful season if we are able to keep our position in the table".

"We stayed away from home, in London".

The Chilean is an invaluable asset, which he highlighted with his outstanding second-half display in the 3-2 comeback vs Manchester City. "We have got to improve".

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

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.

Paul Pogba has now recorded 12 assists in all competitions this season - twice as many as he registered last season.


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

"Everyone feels that we are close and still it is almost to touch".

Spurs failed to make the most of their early dominance as after going in front Eriksen scuffed wide from Harry Kane's layoff before the England striker just couldn't reach Son's viscous in-swinging cross at the back post.

Jose Mourinho's side survived the siege and levelled on 24 minutes, Wembley specialist Alexis Sanchez rising to direct an athletic header across Spurs keeper Michel Vorm from Paul Pogba's flawless cross for his eighth goal in eight appearances at the stadium, BBC reports.

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

"For me, it wasn't a mistake but I respect all opinions", Pochettino added.

"That is the basics".

Sanchez was involved again for the victor 28 minutes from time when his ball across the face of the area fell perfectly for Herrera arriving late from midfield and his low effort into the middle of the goal beat Vorm, who was slow to react down to his right.
