GETTY Danny Murphy says Tottenham need the FA Cup more than Manchester United

Ander Herrera scored the victor as Manchester United came from behind to beat Tottenham 2-1 in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley. "We can't throw it away".

It was the same scoreline in Spurs' other big test of the season at Wembley, the Champions League last-16 second leg against Juventus, where they once again took the lead only to falter under the weight of the occasion.

'He is a coach that demands a lot, and when we lose he gets very angry, ' said Sanchez.

He said: "Tottenham need more time, of course, with me or with another, but it's so important to keep going, focusing on working and developing that philosophy that is fantastic for the club". A 2-1 collapse to United at Wembley Stadium on Saturday left Tottenham reeling from an eighth successive loss in the F.A. Cup semifinals.

"Now we can go back to Manchester with the second place in the Premier League, even with one match less than Liverpool, and with a place in the final".

Pochettino had spoken before the match about how winning the FA Cup would not change the club, stressing the greater importance of the EPL and the Champions League.

Marquez, who has won the race for the past five years, set a time of 2mins 3.658sec, which was half a second ahead of Vinales. Marc Marquez has been given a three-place grid penalty for slow riding on the racing line and disturbing another rider.

The only possible silver lining from the FA Cup failure is the fact that Tottenham can't ignore their weaknesses any longer.

That United are now preparing to face either Chelsea or Southampton in next month's FA Cup final is largely down to the contribution of the Sanchez in this game.

'We let ourselves down. Additionally, Manchester United and Tottenham looked like strong sides, but the Tottenham team ultimately could not keep the ball out of the net. "It sounds a bit cliched maybe, but we need to learn from this as well and I still believe that there's so much more to come for us".

"I'm very pleased to see that, because I have another option now, another card in my hand during the game".

"I definitely believe that we can do better than this with this group". The highly talented attacker has been frustrated with his lack of game-time after a superb debut season at United when he finished as the leading scorer for the Premier League outfit.
