Tottenham exited the FA Cup at the semi final stage for the second successive season after suffering a 2-1 defeat against Manchester United at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

The Lilywhites, playing at their adopted home ground but with half the usual amount of fans, made a bright start to proceedings and took the lead in the opening 12 minutes, Christian Eriksen latching on to a long ball forward and cutting a fierce cross across goal for Dele Alli to slide home and score.

However, despite their early domination, Spurs were unable to capitalise further and found themselves pegged back by Alexis Sanchez’s header 13 minutes later, which came after Mousa Dembele had lost the ball to Paul Pogba in his own defensive third.

It was an enthralling, end-to-end encounter which saw both sides threaten, David de Gea and Michel Vorm both tested, and Mauricio Pochettino’s men could have gone into half time ahead had Eric Dier’s shot deflected inches to the right, cannoning back off the post instead.

However it was the Red Devils who picked up victory, and progression to the final, Ander Herrera’s second half strike all that separated the two teams, with Spurs having to settle for another semi final exit after losing to Chelsea at the same stage last season.
