Mourinho dismisses talk of Tottenham advantage

City spent a huge amount in the summer and have romped to the Premier League title

Though it would be easy to forget there was football on this weekend in light of the momentous news about Arsene Wenger, there are in fact two massive FA Cup games for us to look forward to.

And Jose Mourinho has now revealed United have stayed down south in the wake of that victory at the Vitality Stadium, using Fulham's training ground and stadium for their preparations.

"I want to carry on the good momentum because I was unbeaten at Wembley with Arsenal and I want to do it with Chelsea too".

"They were really, really strong".

Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are set to battle it out in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on Saturday.

"Everyone wants to be playing on the weekend and it's down to the manager for that".

I remember being at Liverpool when we won the 2001 League Cup and stumbled over the line against Birmingham on penalties in the final. I want to play to win the Premier League.

As well as both being desperate for silverware, United and Spurs have had a similar build-up to Saturday. If they do the same number of points [next season] it will be nearly impossible.

"But if you don't, people will be talking about how they lost those games against West Brom and Spurs and then all the talks start about individuals".

You could argue the same for Spurs in some respects because, although they got beaten by a great side in City, they had been on a long unbeaten run [of 20 games in domestic competition] and maybe they were just starting to think they were better than they are. Tottenham have looked solid all season and I think they'll just edge this one tomorrow.

Who will start for Manchester United when they take on Tottenham?

But Shaw, who has endured a largely frustrating time at Old Trafford since signing from Southampton in 2014, hopes to have given Mourinho something to think about as he plots a way past Spurs to the FA Cup final.

I hope it is a classic and there are loads of chances at either end, but I just can not see it being an open affair at all because they are both so good defensively.

Alli was rested for the midweek draw at Brighton as one of six changes made by boss Mauricio Pochettino, who must decide whether to pick regular FA Cup goalkeeper Michel Vorm or stick with Hugo Lloris.

They could end the season with 86 points - more than Leicester managed when they won the title in 2016.
