The win on Thursday night has given the Blues a glimmer of hope to play in the Champions League next season. They kicked their campaign with a solid third-round win over AFC Wimbledon (3-0), but later needed replays to get past two lower sides such as Newport County (1-1, 2-o) and Rochdale (2-2, 6-1).

"I think he's getting stronger, he seems to have that extra yard of pace and his finishing, he shoots from everywhere and more often than not they go in". They also defeated Huddersfield Town and Brighton Hove and Albion by 2-0 scores each, giving them 10 goals scored and none conceded in four FA Cup matches.

One of the most prominent figures in world football, the Frenchman won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups, including the double in 1998 and 2002.

United will need to be at their very best in every department to beat Tottenham tomorrow and progress to the FA Cup final.

The club's last major title came back in 2008, Juande Ramos leading his men to the League Cup title, and the lack of trophies in the Lilywhite half of north London means that despite their impressive displays, Savage is not considering them among the top sides in Europe.

The former Blue said on Chelsea TV: "It would be a shame not to win a trophy and the FA Cup is our only chance".

"I was champion with Chelsea with 95 points".

"I think that's something the manager brings and we as the players feel that from the coaches and from him himself".

They love him and no-doubt have sleepless nights about him being whisked away to another, more attractive partner this summer. If they do the same number of points [next season] it will be nearly impossible. Meanwhile, the antics of Pogba and Herrera against Bournemouth are bound to redeem their awful showing against West Brom, and as of such, ought to be worthy for a start, if for nothing else then to keep up the 4-3-3 shape. This time it's away but I don't see any advantage.

"You want to try and build on great comebacks like that. It wouldn't surprise me if that was how the game was decided".

Mourinho was charged with bringing back the success that the Old Trafford faithful is accustomed to and Smalling speaks highly of his manager's approach.

While finishing touches have been made to the Londoners' new stadium, Mauricio Pochettino's side have played their home matches at the national venue Wembley throughout the 2017-18 season, which has led to questions regarding whether they may obtain an advantage over their opponents in the final stages of the FA Cup.

Against a team as good as Tottenham, if you have one or two people in the team who are not switched on defensively then Spurs will find the gaps, because that is what they do - and they punished United at Wembley when Pogba wandered out wide.
