Post FA Cup Semi Finals
The Spurs v Manchester United semi was a full blooded and hotly contested battle.

Spurs set the tone in the first minutes as Alexis Sanchez was crunched as he was running away on a breakout.

Sanchez had a calf stamped on from behind and the Spurs assassin didn't even get booked.

The good news was that Spurs hadn't crocked him and Spurs lost their 8th semi-final in succession as Pogba finally got the job done.

The second semi-final looks to be a less violent game.

We shall see.

"Chelsea's quick-fire comeback at St Mary's last weekend will have left Antonio Conte confident his Chelsea side can reach a second FA Cup final in succession. Conte will also have been delighted with how his side embraced a tactical tweak to win at Turf Moor on Thursday - ending Burnley's five-match winning streak.

"Southampton are hoping to reach only their third FA Cup final since 1902, but relegation is still looming very large despite their first league point under Mark Hughes at Leicester on Thursday".

MOTM was the Southampton defence.

We should have scored 4 times by half time, scored immediately on the restart and then scored only once after that.

Should have been 5 plonk.

Still, a win is a win.
