Manchester United v Tottenham FA Cup tips – Spurs have the tools to win



That awkward moment when you play a neutral FA Cup semi-final tie at a ground which you’ve been calling “home” all season.

While Manchester United will get half the tickets for Saturday’s clash, Tottenham Hotspur will be familiar with their surroundings after temporarily decamping to Wembley Stadium from White Hart Lane for a year.

There have been some notable victories at the national stadium including Champions League triumphs against Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, while they have also put Liverpool and Arsenal to the sword here.

You could also argue that Spurs have a better team than Manchester United although that’s a bit more subjective considering the Red Devils do sit higher in the Premier League table, having beaten the London side at Old Trafford earlier this term.

Jose Mourinho will be desperate to win this competition after falling short in every other competition and United did recently come from two goals down at Manchester City to win the derby 3-2.

However, that was followed by a 1-0 flop at home to basement boys West Brom and it’s easy to make a case for the “home team”, considering that Tottenham are a well-oiled machine who seem to rise well to the big occasion.

The slight concern for Spurs is the concession of too many goals and the nagging feeling that Davinson Sanchez might struggle with the physicality of Romelu Lukaku, while his namesake Alexis is also a livewire and likely to rise to the occasion.

However, Spurs have big game players of their own and we’re taking them to triumph and qualify for another “home” match in the form of the FA Cup final.
