  • Arsene Wenger Manager of Arsenal looks on during the UEFA Europa League Semi Final leg one match between Arsenal FC and Atletico Madrid at Emirates Stadium

Mourinho now has the opportunity next month to become the third manager to win the FA Cup with two different clubs, while United can claim a record-equalling 13th FA Cup triumph if they overcome his former club Chelsea in the final.

The North Londoners fell at the last-four hurdle for the eight time on the trot, with Kane in particular struggling to make an impact.

"They were better than us, they scored and there was a period when we lost control in midfield".

Ten years ago both teams contested a Champions League final, now they're battling to not go an entire season trophyless, and in their two league meetings this season they share a win apiece. The FA Cup semi-finals are traditionally played at a neutral venue.

"We stayed away from home, in London". While Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino still awaits his first trophy in English football, Mourinho proved again that he remains a tactical master as he closed in on a 10th.

"Tottenham in the last four years that you follow our process we are building a very good team, trying to create the winning mentality. It's a small thing [and] it's a small detail but it does matter and I think he would have learned a lesson yesterday".

"So we have to leave him sometimes free and I have to be more next to Nemanja, but try to sometimes be in those positions where I can score, and I did it".




A second-placed finish combined with a trophy could be enough to argue his season has not been the complete, abject failure many have deemed it to be.

The FA Cup is the only trophy left on offer for the 20-time Premier League champions to aim for and with Mourinho often pointing out "improvements" from his first season to the current.

Although United have failed to win the Premier League and Champions League this season they can end the campaign on a high by winning the FA Cup after beating Tottenham in the semifinal at Wembley on Saturday.

"We are talking about two managers with strong characters, two winners".

Discussing the player's future, he said: "He knows the substitutes' bench, like me at Paris Saint-Germain with [former coach Luis] Fernandez". But Alexis Sanchez levelled and they controlled the second half in which Ander Herrera scored the victor.

"It was a unusual season for us", Lukaku added.
