Pochettino raises questions over future after Spurs' FA Cup defeat

Mauricio Pochettino’s trophy cabinet remains bare at TottenhamMore

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho taught Tottenham rival Mauricio Pochettino a lesson in Saturday's FA Cup semifinal win, says Alan Shearer.

Spurs suffered Wembley heartache on Saturday, losing to Manchester United in the semi-final as the London club's decade-long wait for a trophy continues.

Mourinho feels that United were the better team on the day and deserved to book their place in the final, where they will meet the victor of Sunday's semi-final between Chelsea and Southampton. "There's obviously a reason why we're falling short in semi-finals".

'There is no love lost between Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho and both have gone below the belt in their personal feud over the last couple of years.

"81 points breaks the 80-point target and to finish second to an untouchable victor (Man City) is good and to make more points, score more goals, win more, concede less goals and have much better results against the top teams is a successful 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.

A thigh problem saw him miss more than three months of the season from September and he has since picked up another injury which has seen him miss over a month and as such he has scored just twice all season.


"Second with 81 points is a good season and then we can come to the (FA Cup) final with a good spirit, supported by good supporters".

Garth Crooks has launched a freaky attack on Ander Herrera following the midfielder's powerful display against Tottenham Hotspur, describing the Spaniard as "the most irritating player in the Premier League". We'll all be disappointed today, as will I. But all we can do is try to secure the Champions League place.

'I'm pleased especially for our fans. Surely, Tottenham earned more chances on goal in the first half, but they simply could not find the net.

"But it was impossible, because City were really good and consistent and will reach a number of points that makes it impossible".

'The final it will be not easy.

"The challenge was to be competitive and then reduce the gap to the top four".

"We can't keep doing this", Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli said.
