Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has stated that his star players, Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba had redeemed themselves with a sterling performance to beat Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-finals after the embarrassment of losing to West Brom at home in the Premier League last weekend.

United came from a goal down to beat Spurs 2-1 on Saturday to qualify for the finals of the competition with Sanchez, Ander Herrera scoring and Pogba delivering an authoritative display.

Mourinho told reporters after the match: “I told Alexis the same as I told Paul a couple of weeks ago. I cannot expect my players to be man of the match every match, I cannot expect them to score goals every match, I cannot expect them to be perfect very match.

“What I expect is a certain level you don’t drop below, and that level is the basic things of the game. If you do the basic things of the game and then in some matches your talent appears and makes the difference, that is fine. I am not waiting for Alexis to score again in the next match and be man of the match. I just want him to be stable.

“I can imagine that even if we had lost today, I would not be as upset as I was against West Brom, even with it being an FA Cup semi-final, because the attitude was good, the players were good, they were focused, they were ready, they helped each other and were confident to play. I was really really happy and pleased so the answer was good.

“I think the feeling now is we need two victories and one draw to finish second with 81 points and if we manage to do that, against an untouchable City [when there was] no chance to get in the fight with them, then we can get to the final with a good spirit.”

Mourinho’s men will clash with Arsenal in their next game in the Premier League next Sunday at Old Trafford.
