FA Cup semi-final preview - Man Utd v Spurs

Sky Sports pundit Steve McMahon

Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur will aim to keep their hopes of silverware alive when they meet each other in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final at Wembley Stadium.

Man United come into the contest with four wins out of five matches though an bad home defeat to West Bromwich Albion certainly may have rattled confidence in some quarters.

In what is arguably one of the biggest games of the season so far, the Reds take on Mauricio Pochettino's side as they target the final of English football's biggest domestic cup competition for the 22nd time.

The former Blue said on Chelsea TV: "It would be a shame not to win a trophy and the FA Cup is our only chance. It was a shocking result against West Brom, and it all comes down to this game". Mourinho has tried to play down the idea that this could be viewed as a "home" game for Spurs but the fact they've played all their home matches at Wembley this season has to be an advantage for their players.

"Look, I played one Cup final in Roma stadium against Roma and I won, and I play a Cup final in my stadium and I lost", he told a press conference yesterday.

Mourinho: "I think when you go to these big moments with these big decisions, semi-finals, I don't think it's an advantage".

Mourinho, who is seeking a fourth FA Cup triumph after three with Chelsea, said on Friday: "I don't think it's an advantage at all".

It's been a disappointing season for both clubs, but on different levels.

"But it's different to when we play in the Premier League".

Here, people love to talk about perception and changing perceptions. Lukaku and midfielder Nemanja Matic are among those likely to return to the starting XI after playing substitute roles at Bournemouth in midweek.
