Why Tottenham Need FA Cup Win More Than Man Utd

Recent FormManchester United have won four and lost two of their last six matches in all competitions, while Spurs have gotten four victories, one draw and one loss from the same number of games.

Winning the FA Cup this season will scratch an increasing itch for a lot of people, but will not make a lot of difference to Pochettino, who openly prioritises other competitions.

"I want to carry on the good momentum because I was unbeaten at Wembley with Arsenal and I want to do it with Chelsea too".

He lifted it with United in 2016 but was sacked two days later and that is the mark of the club and shows what really matters for them.

The Lilywhites are heading into an FA Cup semi final on Saturday for their second successive season, with just Manchester United standing in their way for the chance to take on the challenge of a final for cup glory.

One fan described Lloris as "shaky right now" and want Vorm to start between the sticks "because he's played every round", despite making just 10 appearances all season. I don't believe, it would be fantastic to finish the season with a trophy.

But I think the progress they have made under Pochettino is already obvious, and it is remarkable in that it has happened much quicker than anyone ever thought it would.

"Of course the FA Cup is very important".

Oil prices rise on lower United States crude inventories, global supply risks
Brent crude oil futures (LCOc1) were at $72.17 per barrel at 0539 GMT, up 59 cents, or 0.8 percent, from their last close. Stockpiles of gasoline fell by 2.5 million barrels, outpacing the 450,000-barrel increase expected in a Bloomberg survey.

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

"You want to try and build on great comebacks like that".

"Whatever way you look at it though, Tottenham are the home team. This time is away but I don't see any advantage, for me it's the same as playing at Old Trafford".

The Portuguese has thanked Fulham and head coach Slavisa Jokanovic for allowing United to use their facilities as they prepare for Saturday's showdown.

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.

"So in this season many clubs had positive seasons, like us, like Tottenham, like Liverpool". You have to beat teams like West Brom who are struggling for their lives.
