Man Utd And Tottenham To Serve Up An FA Cup Treat At Wembley

Man Utd v Tottenham - Saturday 21st April 2018 17:15 (Wembley Stadium)

With league titles around the continent wrapping up this week, undoubtedly the fixture of the weekend will make football fans cast their eye over to North-West London with the mouth-watering FA Cup Semi-Final between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Manchester United will want to eradicate the disappointment of finally conceding the league to their noisy neighbours with a solid FA Cup display against Spurs on Saturday, where Tottenham are in the unusual situation of occupying the away dressing room at their (temporary) home stadium. Jose Mourinho is on course to win his third prize in two years with the Red Devils- and his fifth since his return to England. Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has so many of his own advocates, yet needs to support his stylish football with a trophy. The Argentine has been head honcho for the North London team for almost four years, but has yet to win any silverware for the Lilywhites, something he’ll take the next step to rectify with a semi-final win against Utd, and Spurs are in fact slight favourites at 6/5 (BoyleSports) to win the tie.
Match Odds:

Tottenham have just two losses since the start of 2018- against Juventus and Manchester City, respectively. They have also turned Wembley into a bit of a fortress, surprising many who questioned their performances at the venue last year. In the last meeting between Utd and Spurs, also at Wembley at the end of January, Tottenham performed excellently to win 2-0, with a memorable first minute goal from Christian Eriksen. Utd barely turned up. Eriksen, who has probably been Tottenham’s best player this season, and certainly the most important since the beginning of the calendar year has scored five- or maybe six, depending on what Harry Kane has to say about it- on his last four outings, and for him to score anytime on Saturday is excellent at 13/5 with William Hill.

Tottenham tasted domestic defeat for the first time this year to Manchester City last weekend, at Wembley and Pochettino will want his team to respond in emphatic fashion. They haven’t won the FACup since 1991, which is also the last time they got to the final. For them to take both halves for comfortable passage to meet either Chelsea or Southampton, they are backed HT/FT winners at 27/10 with both Ladbrokes and Coral. In these last four years marking Pochettino’s reign, between the Premier League’s two most recent bridesmaids, only on one occasion has the winning side not kept a clean-sheet, and no more than a total of three goals have been scored in the fixture. Picking this number of goals to be repeated is best 10/3 with bet365. Both Teams to score and a United win is 11/2 with Betfred.

Man Utd v Tottenham - Head-To-Head And Odds.

Each team’s top striker is expected to perform. For Utd, Romelu Lukaku has got five, to Spurs’ talisman Harry Kane’s four in the FA Cup this term. Both could have two games to pass Wigan’s Will Grigg’s seven in this year’s competition. Kane is the favourite with betfair to open the scoring at 7/2, whilst Lukaku is a lot further out at 13/2. Kane is a guaranteed starter. Lukaku on-the-other-hand is subject to Mourinho’s whim; he didn’t start against Bournemouth on Wednesday which can either be interpreted as the Portuguese’s reaction to the West Brom defeat, or saving the imposing Belgian for the more important FA Cup fixture.

A 1-0 Utd win, the most frequent recurring result over the past several years, is 21/2 with BetVictor- although this has only ever come at Old Trafford. Backing Manchester United with a -1 handicap is 13/2 with Coral, might be preferable. Moreover, Tottenham to score over 1.5 goals is 6/5 with bet365 and Coral, as they have done on 30 out of 49 occasions this season.
