Manchester United came from behind to reach the Emirates FA Cup final at Tottenham Hotspur’s expense on Saturday, thanks to goals from Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera.
Having conceded inside 11 seconds on January’s league visit to Wembley, the Reds again fell behind early on when Dele Alli slid home Christian Eriksen’s cross from the right after 10 minutes.
That was the first time United’s goal had been breached in the cup this season and it came during a frantic opening period during which Spurs were decidedly on top.
But Jose Mourinho’s men were back on level terms midway through the first half as Alexis scored at Wembley for the eighth time, superbly meeting Paul Pogba’s delicate cross to guide a header into the bottom corner of Michel Vorm’s goal.
The tempo of the game slowed somewhat after the break and Herrera’s decisive contribution came just after the hour mark, as he slammed past an unsighted Vorm after Jesse Lingard had left Alexis’s cross for the Spaniard.
United will return to Wembley on 19 May to face the winners of Sunday’s second semi-final between Chelsea and Southampton, aiming to lift the trophy for a record-equalling 13th time.
