Confirmed Starting XI: Jose Mourinho puts out a strong side aiming to beat Spurs

Manchester United face the biggest match of the season, the Emirates FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley. This is the only chance for United to win some silverware this season and the players should be taking the opportunity to set themselves up for another trip to Wembley in May.

United have had a mixed week, losing 1-0 to relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford on Sunday, a side who stunned Liverpool this afternoon, coming back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 in the Premier League.

Jose Mourinho’s side returned to winning ways on Wednesday evening, beating Bournemouth 2-0 at the Vitality Stadium with David De Gea keeping his 17th clean sheet of the Premier League season. United have had a positive season, overcoming all those draws last season, scoring more goals and winning more games. The style of play still holds some problems though.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Young;

Herrera, Matic, Pogba;

Lingard, Lukaku, Sanchez

Substitutes:

Pereira; Lindelof, Darmian; Mata, Fellaini; Martial, Rashford

United and Spurs have played a total of 188 matches in the history of both clubs – United winning 89 times, drawing 48 times, and losing 51 times. Over the past three seasons in the Premier League, United have won three and lost three – winning all three matches at Old Trafford, losing two at White Hart Lane and the one a Wembley earlier this season.

The Red Devils have lost just five FA Cup matches against Spurs – the last defeat on the 9th January 1980, winning the three most recent matches – 2-0 on the 5th January 1997, 3-1 on the 27th January 2008, and 2-1 on the 24th January 2009. Mourinho and United will be looking to win another FA Cup match, one which will earn them a place in the final this season.
