Man United handed nightmare FA Cup semi-final draw

The Red Devils face a difficult mission to make the FA Cup final

Now it is really heating up.

After the FA Cup quarter-final weekend where all the favourites won, we now have two delicious ties for the semi finals.

Pedro’s extra-time winner secured Chelsea’s spot in the last four and they were rewarded with a tie against Southampton, but Man United will play Spurs.

Spurs were the first team to make it into the last four as they swept past Swansea on Saturday afternoon quieting all fears that they are useless without Harry Kane.

The England striker is out for the next month at least but in the shape of Christian Eriksen, Heung-Min Son and Erik Lamela this could be the year Spurs finally don’t bottle it.

They’ve beat United this season already and even though Mauricio Pochettino assures everyone he doesn’t need to win a trophy to be proved right, he would love an FA Cup triumph.

Jose Mourinho was still somehow furious with his team after they beat Brighton at Old Trafford in the snow.

Romelu Lukaku scored his sixth goal in seven games as he appears to be picking up form at exactly the right time, although I guess it would’ve been good against Sevilla in mid-week instead.

Southampton beat giant-killers Wigan, who dumped out Man City in the last round, earlier today in Mark Hughes first game in charge.

Despite missing a penalty and not playing well, the Saints beat the League One outfit 2-0 and now Hughes can look forward to the distraction of an FA Cup semi final while dealing with all the struggles of a relegation battle.

It will be the Saints first appearance at this stage of the tournament for 15 years.

would it still be a good appointment if he wins the cup but gets relegated?

The ties will be played on the weekend of April 21/22 and if you hadn’t already heard, all of Spurs’ game from now on will be at home.

If this isn’t Spurs’ year, I don’t know when is.
