Wembley is United's home from home

Manchester United bounced back from their defeat to West Brom with a nervy but clear 2-0 win over Bournemouth.

With second place now United's for the taking, the club will move their attentions to the FA Cup on Saturday knowing that the tournament presents their final chance to earn a piece of silverware.

It's fair to say Wembley Stadium has become Manchester United's second home over the years. Spurs totally outplayed Jose Mourinho's side and huge questions were asked about the hapless display.

Jose Mourinho has thrown down the gauntlet on his stars. The lone absentee will be Sergio Romero, as the Argentinian goalkeeper is still "a few weeks away" from returning after the injury he sustained with La Albiceleste in the friendly against Spain a few weeks ago.

Mourinho praised Pogba's response in Wednesday's 2-0 win at Bournemouth and challenged him to keep his game at a high level.

Pogba, has, on the other hand, faced a hard time in the last couple of months, failing to understand the requirements placed on him in a two-man midfield.

At the stadium where Tottenham has been playing its home matches this season, Alli's goal gave the 1991 FA Cup winners hope of turning around their miserable recent record in world football's oldest knockout competition. It ensured Mourinho, who won the League Cup and Europa League in his first season at United, has a chance to also end this campaign with silverware against Chelsea or Southampton in the FA Cup final.

Bruins take 3-1 lead; Caps-Blue Jackets series tied 2-2
In Game 4, Boston funnelled the Leafs back into the grinding, stationary cycle game, which isn't their forte to say the least. I cannot remember the last time Rask made a huge game-changing save, or just a key save in a key moment.

Tottenham Hotspur, on the other hand, must have fulfilled their target for the season as their fourth position finish sitting behind City, United and Liverpool would be acceptable for the board.

The Red Devils forward has only managed to score two goals in 14 games to prompt criticism of his form.

"To create that winning mentality is another four years". They've beaten Derby County, Yeovil Town, Huddersfield and Brighton by a combined 10-0. Spurs have lost each of their past seven semifinals: now is the time to put that right, to help dispel the lingering myth of "Spursiness", that inability ever quite to finish a job.

The first came when denying United the double in 2007, with Didier Drogba scoring the victor at the end of extra time. There have been 48 draws while Tottenham have won 51 times.

Mauricio Pochettino may have frivolously dismissed the importance of winning the FA Cup but there's an element of truth in his statement in that winning the trophy would mean more to Manchester United than Tottenham.
