I have no problem with Mourinho, says Man United star Pogba

Mauricio Pochettino

The FA Cup semi-final between Manchester United and Tottenham proved to be an exciting match.

Man of the match Sanchez headed a 24th-minute equaliser against Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday before Ander Herrera's strike after the hour sealed a gripping 2-1 semi-final win.

Yet to win any silverware as coach, the focus is now maintaining Southampton's Premier League status, after Hughes suffered the ignominy of being dumped out of the FA Cup twice in a single campaign.

He had had his critics for his side's style of play at times in recent months but he knows how to get his team over the line, and he makes the difference at the big moments like he did here.

Unable to breakdown a stubborn Jose Mourinho team once they went behind, Pochettino made several odd choices which irked supporters both with his initial XI and when making substitutions. Rather than negativity, the manager was being bullish and saying that the ambition must be higher than the league cup and FA Cup.

Romelu Lukaku believes the current Manchester United squad can win next season's Premier League, with consistency rather than quality having been their problem this term.

Joe Hart did his chances of making England's World Cup squad no harm with stunning saves from Xhaka and Danny Welbeck. Youngster Declan Rice bizarrely opted to duck under Ramsey's cross-cum-shot and it nestled in Hart's far corner.

But yet again, Spurs are going to end a season with no silverware to show for their progression. As Spurs fell to yet another semi-final defeat Pochettino spent much of the final half hour with his hands on his hips.

"We are getting used to being in finals which is good because this club is about titles and playing finals".

Others think that Pochettino's comments were a message to chairman Daniel Levy, suggesting that he needs to be backed with major signings this summer, though others felt that Pochettino wouldn't be completely irreplaceable as Spurs aim for trophies. This club is about finals and winning trophies'.

"I think the feeling now is we need two victories and one draw to finish second with 81 points", Mourinho, who won the FA Cup with Chelsea in 2007, told a news conference after Saturday's deserved victory. If anyone deserves success with Tottenham, it is Mauricio Pochettino.

But Spurs needed him to be fit and firing for this game, and he wasn't. And if it is going to take a few more years yet, Pochettino might not hang around to wait for it.
