Manchester United progressed to the final of the FA Cup after coming from behind to beat Tottenham 2-1 in one of the semi-finals played at Wembley on Saturday.Dele Alli gave Spurs an early lead, before Alexis Sanchez levelled for the Red Devils later in the first half. Ander Herrera then scored what proved to be the winner in the second half as United edges closer to winning a trophy this season.This was a game that started with a really high tempo, expectedly, seeing as it offers both side’s only avenue to a trophy this season. It was a game that saw both sides show decent amounts of intensity going forward, but it was Spurs who looked better on the offense.That would prove true in the 11th minute when Alli met a perfect cross from Christian Eriksen deep inside the box and controlled it with a nice first touch. He produced a low shot into the middle of the goal to beat David De Gea. Spurs lead 1-0.The interesting is, despite the decent intensity of the game, very little chances were being created and that was the case after Spurs took the lead, as there were no real chances created until the 24th minute. This was when Paul Pogba sent a superb cross into the box. Sanchez latched on to it and from close range planted a header inside the left post, leaving Michel Vorm beaten. He displayed his eye for goal there - excellent finish.
