Kane and Alli came close before the equaliser and Eric Dier's deflected drive struck the post in first-half stoppage time, making Ander Herrera's 62nd-minute victor and Spurs' subsequent lack of a late rally tough to take.

The last time Spurs won in an FA Cup semi-final was a 3-1 victory over Arsenal in 1991, going on to beat Nottingham Forest in the final.

Tottenham pushed for a way back into the match, but an equaliser remained elusive and it means the Lilywhites' wait for silverware will continue into an 11th year.

Alexis Sanchez has scored eight goals in his eight appearances at Wembley for club and country, including six goals in five FA Cup matches.

He said that Tottenham, who have been without a trophy since 2008, need more time to build the mentality needed to win trophies.

Jose Mourinho set for possible date with Chelsea: Mourinho has enjoyed a hot-cold relationship with the Blues fans since leaving Stamford Bridge and he would love to have another opportunity to beat the west London outfit.

And that, more than anything, characterised his performance: one full of heart, dedication, sheer will - and one that played a huge role in steering United to the FA Cup final.

Although Tottenham threatened at times and saw much of the ball, the midfield trio of Nemanja Matic, Pogba and Herrera managed to retain enough possession and broke up play to see United over the line, with Ander Herrea's brilliant strike sending the Red Devils to their 20th FA Cup final.

Pochettino has now suffered a League Cup final defeat and successive FA Cup semi-final losses with Tottenham.

United settled again and hit back midway through the half as Paul Pogba outmuscled Mousa Dembele on the left wing, picked out Sanchez with an inch-perfect cross which evaded the Spurs centre-backs, and the Chilean headed home across the stationary Michel Vorm.

It was the fifth straight FA Cup game at Wembley in which the Chile worldwide has scored, with the previous four coming for Arsenal.

"We knew we were going to fight sometimes and defend together". We were on top for periods of the game. It was unfair to go in 1-1 at half-time.

They weren't even playing at Old Trafford today.

While Mourinho has fallen short in the English Premier League behind newly crowned champion Manchester City, United is second and on course for its highest finish since Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.

Liverpool missed a chance to considerably stretch its advantage over Tottenham in one of Saturday's two league games.

The Red Devils are aiming to finish as runners-up to Manchester City in the table, and they are now second behind the newly-crowned champions.
