Chelsea have progressed to the final from 11 of their last 14 FA Cup semi-final matches, losing out only in 1996, 2006 and 2013.

"I loved the FA Cup, I was lucky to win it twice".

"Obviously, previous year we picked up a couple of trophies and I think the manager has instilled that in terms of his training preparations", he says.

Whether they go through to the final or not, United do not base success on winning FA Cups.

Mourinho has a reputation for getting the job done in the big games and has still never lost a final in 90 minutes, but for United to get there, they must overcome a Spurs side by whom they were soundly beaten at Wembley in January.

"Be it a little game or even when it's more of a recovery session, we've still got that willingness to win, no matter what".

One of the other things that silverware does, as well as keeping the fans happy, is give the players a sense that the club is moving forward - and that is important when you want to keep them.

Former Premier League star and current pundit Robbie Savage has torn into Tottenham over their lack of silverware and dealt a damning blow to manager Mauricio Pochettino for his trophy record.

Breakfast Spoiler: 200 million eggs recalled over salmonella contamination
Rose Acre Farms in Seymor, Indiana, was recalling the eggs voluntarily because of a possible contamination with the bacteria. A recall of 206,749,248 eggs has occurred in the U.S. , following 22 reports of illness linked to salmonella contamination.

The sides first met in October 2017 at Old Trafford where United scraped a late 1-0 victory over a Spurs side without Harry Kane.

"A few weeks ago we knew we had big games against Liverpool, Chelsea, City and not only were they markers to kick us on this year, they were also markers to show that next season we are going to be competing on all fronts and hopefully be in three or four competitions come the end of the season", Smalling said.

It is hard to make a call on who will come out on top on Saturday but for me Tottenham are favourites - just - because they are in effect playing at their home ground.

Will Jose Mourinho add to the two trophies he won last season, or will "home" advantage help Tottenham ensure they move to their new stadium with the FA Cup proudly on display?

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.

Chelsea face Southampton in the second semi-final on Sunday.

"We haven't played together much, but it is easy to play with this kind of player, we can find each other easily on the pitch", he said.
