Mourinho dismisses talk of Tottenham advantage

Both sides will really want to win the match and have a chance to get their hands on this last chance for some silverware this season.

However, for Tottenham, as one of the most improved sides in the past decade, the only thing seemingly missing off their record is a trophy. It has been a disappointing season for the Red Devils, but they could still finish it on a high with another cup success.

United bounced back from Sunday's shock 1-0 home Premier League defeat by bottom club West Bromwich Albion with a convincing 2-0 win at Bournemouth Wednesday to consolidate second place in the table.

That limp surrender had gifted the Premier League title to Manchester City, prompting Mourinho to accuse his players of complacency.

"Now it feels different because we will share facilities with Manchester United", Pochettino said.

But United have a proud tradition in the competition, with 12 wins in their history, just one behind Arsenal. Mourinho has tried to play down the idea that this could be viewed as a "home" game for Spurs but the fact they've played all their home matches at Wembley this season has to be an advantage for their players. They topped their group which consisted of Benfica, Basel, and CSKA Moscow which gave them a favorable draw against Sevilla. If we can win the FA Cup, then fantastic. On Friday, it was interesting to hear Mourinho be so much more circumspect. A bright start to the Premier League is starting to look like it might end with them finishing fourth and having a tricky play-off to contend with in August. But the time has come for the Argentine to reap the harvest now in North London. A good Champions League group stage - you beat Dortmund, Real Madrid and you compete very well against Juventus and the dimension of the club around the world changes completely. They were really strong. And yet, Saints' fans (like Wigan in 2013) would settle for that wouldn't they?

Justice Sonia Maria Sotomayor asked. "Where services are concerned, I recommend that the states leave well enough alone", he said. South Dakota passed a law that requires businesses to collect state sales taxes for orders shipped to the state.

"It's an opportunity for people to come in and showcase what they can do". And they could yet finish second, above all the other teams bar City. They topped a group of death in the Champions League and really should have qualified to the quarterfinals.

Conte has been coy when questioned about his future throughout a troubled season, but he urged his players to play for the fans regardless of his own position at the club.

Sammy McIlroy, who played more games against Tottenham Hotspur (19) than any other side for United, opened the scoring in the 10th minute.

'I was not expecting Alexis to arrive and to immediately become the player we know he can be.

"This team and club deserves a trophy for all the work we've put in and we hope Saturday can be the next step". Two trophies - the Europa League and League Cup - in his first season (and he could yet win the FA Cup this term) once again shows that while his methods may not appeal to everyone's idea of handsome football, he nearly always guarantees trophies wherever he goes, something Pochettino hasn't exactly mastered.
