Giroud hopes FA Cup success follows him across London

Posted April 21, 2018

Spurs have made Wembley their home as White Hart Lane is rebuilt, leading to suggestions they have an advantage. Tottenham are set to recall Dele Alli for the FA Cup semi-final with Manchester United.

Which of these two will lead their team to the FA Cup final?

They will be desperate to, because Mourinho is all about trophies and I like that about him.

In addition, he also targeted Pochettino's disappointing history of honours in comparison to United's Jose Mourinho, which reads 20-0 in the Portuguese boss' favour.

Of course I understand the argument that Pochettino - and Spurs - really need a trophy because of what it would mean to them. He has 12 goals in 11 FA Cup games and has scored in every round this season.

Despite jose's down playing the possibility of branding the season being branded a failure should Man U fail to win the FA cup, some supporters of the side insist that the only way they can be happy for the season is to clinch the trophy after losing the premier league title to rival neighbours Manchester city.

Antonio Conte: "We must always have great motivation to finish the season as strongly as possible".

"I want to play to win the Premier League and Champions League - it is my vision".

In terms of preparing for this game, I actually think it was a good thing for United to lose to West Brom last weekend because it was a massive kick up the backside for them.

"It's an opportunity for people to come in and showcase what they can do".

But Shaw, who has endured a largely frustrating time at Old Trafford since signing from Southampton in 2014, hopes to have given Mourinho something to think about as he plots a way past Spurs to the FA Cup final.

Who will start for Manchester United when they take on Tottenham?

The Paul Pogba issue has been an ongoing story this season with many highlighting his influence higher up the pitch when he is allowed the freedom to play with Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic behind the Frenchman.

The victors will face a stiff challenge in the final, however, either in the form of fellow "Big Six" members Chelsea or relegation-threatened Southampton, who will likely face an uphill task at Wembley.
