Manchester United vs Tottenham – Team News:
Apart from Sergio Romero – who’s still recovering from trying to take on Diego Costa (brave, silly, Sergio) in that meaningless friendly – Jose Mourinho has a fully fit squad to choose from, but he’s unlikely to deviate from the standard approach. Smalling’s goals have rendered his defensive inadequacies immaterial for now and that should see him start alongside professional ninja and part-time footballer Eric Bailly, while in midfield he’s likely to pair Paul Pogba with both Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera considering just how swamped his two-man midfield got at Wembley the last time around. Up front, Marcus Rashford may have just done enough to keep his Wembley-loving mate Jesse Lingard out of the starting XI but Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku are both almost nailed-on starters.
For Mauricio Pochettino, things are a lot more straightforward. Apart from Harry Winks – who’s been out for a while now with an ankle injury – and the all-but-forgotten Danny Rose, he too has a decently full squad to pick from. At right back, the choice boils down to the exciting yet unreliable Serge Aurier and the consistency of Kieron Trippier while in midfield he can either pick the grace of Son Heung-Min or the dogged tenacity of Erik Lamela… but he’s like to go with Trippier and Son considering just how good they have been this season. Elsewhere the team picks itself – especially since Toby Alderweireld seems to have fallen a little out of favour – and he’ll look to them to reproduce the kind of performance that stunned United, and the watching world, in February.
Manchester United vs Tottenham – Probable Lineups:
Manchester United Predicted XI (4-3-3): David De Gea (GK); Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling, Ashley Young; Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba; Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez
Tottenham Hotspur Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Hugo Lloris (GK); Kieron Trippier, Davinson Sanchez, Jan Vertonghen, Ben Davies; Mousa Dembele, Eric Dier; Delli Alli, Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-Ming; Harry Kane
Manchester United vs Tottenham – Form Guide:
This has been such a topsy-turvy season for both teams – at times unplayable, at others unwatchable, both United and Spurs have ended up at this FA Cup Semifinal with the same sword hanging over their necks – Win, and redeem a disappointing season. Lose, and.
What is it?
With the Premier League title race now over, the FA Cup represents the last opportunity for Manchester United and Tottenham to lift a trophy this season.
What TV channel is it on?

What is the team news?
United have their first-choice line-up available. Striker Romelu Lukaku and midfielder Nemanja Matic are among those likely to return to the starting XI after playing substitute roles at Bournemouth.
Back-up goalkeeper Sergio Romero has been out since sustaining a back problem on international duty with Argentina and is the only injury absentee, with Daley Blind returning against the Cherries.
Provisional squad: De Gea, Pereira, O’Hara, Valencia, Darmian, Shaw, Young, Blind, Lindelof, Smalling, Jones, Rojo, Bailly, Matic, Carrick, Pogba, Fellaini, McTominay, Herrera, Mata, Lingard, Martial, Sanchez, Rashford, Lukaku.
Spurs are set to recall Dele Alli. The England midfielder was rested for the midweek draw at Brighton as one of six changes made by boss Mauricio Pochettino, who must decide whether to pick regular FA Cup goalkeeper Michel Vorm or stick with Hugo Lloris.
Danny Rose (calf) is still missing while Harry Winks (ankle) is a long-term injury victim.
Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Gazzaniga, Trippier, Aurier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Foyth, Sanchez, Davies, Dier, Wanyama, Dembele, Eriksen, Sissoko, Alli, Son, Moura, Lamela, Llorente, Kane.
What’s our prediction?
Both managers need a trophy for very different reasons. Mauricio Pochettino is looking for his first piece of silverware, while Jose Mourinho could do with something to quieten his critics. The fact Spurs will be at their temporary Wembley home should give them a slight advantage and this feels like the time for Pochettino’s young team to step up.
Prediction: Tottenham 2 Manchester United 1.
