Manchester United 2 – 1 Tottenham Hotspur | Football Association Cup Semi-Final – Match Highlights
- 11′ 0 – 1 Dele Alli fires Spurs into an early lead in their semi-final against Man United. Awful defending by United, but what a pass by Christian Eriksen. It’s a long ball to the Dane on the right wing, he controls it and glides towards the box before picking out the arriving Dele Alli, who times his run perfectly to slide in and score. But where was Alli’s marker?
- 24′ 1 – 1 Alexis Sánchez levels for Manchester United. He loves Wembley. Two of United’s most underfire players combined for the equaliser. Paul Pogba shrugs off Mousa Dembele on the touchline and crosses for Alexis Sanchez who guides his header past Michel Vorm. Game on.
- 62′ 2 – 1 Ander Herrera puts Man United in front against Spurs. Alexis Sanchez wins the ball from a Romelu Lukaku header, he plays it across the box. Lukaku mistimes his touch, while Lingard gets the faintest touch and to tees up Herrera who rifles his shot through Ben Davies’ legs and in.
