Emirates FA Cup: Sanchez, Herrera On Target Vs Spurs As United Reach Final

Manchester United booked a place in the final of the Emirates FA Cup following a 2-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Tottenham Hotspur took an early lead through Dele Alli but the Red Devils rallied back from goals by Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera.

Spurs dominated the opening exchanges and took the lead after 11 minutes.

Danish playmaker Christian Eriksen provided a wonderful delivery towards the far post which was tapped home by Alli.

United struggled to match Jose Pochettino’s men despite going down so early in the game but were soon back on level terms.

They got back into the game in the 23rd minute courtesy of a fine header by Sanchez.

The Chilean international got his head to an inch-perfect cross from Paul Pogba and nodded the ball beyond Micheal Vorm.
