Manchester United have qualified for the final of the 2017/18 English FA Cup after coming back from a goal down to beat Tottenham 2-1 in the semi final on Saturday evening, April 21.

Tottenham went into this game with lots of confidence considering the fact that the match was played at the Wembley Stadium which is their adopted home ground.

They took the lead in the 11th minute through Dele Alli who was assisted by Christian Eriksen, but Paul Pogba would have himself to blame for his mistake.

Pogba redeemed himself for the gaffe that allowed Tottenham to score the opener.

Manchester United came out aggressive in the second half, but they had to wait till the 62nd minute before they scored their winning goal through Ander Herrera.

Herrera was assisted by Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku as Tottenham goalie Michel Vorm was helpless as the Red Devils won the match 2-1.

Manchester United will go back to the Wembley Stadium in May for the FA Cup final where they will meet the winner of the second semi final clash between Chelsea and Southampton.
