Man United v Tottenham tips: Eriksen the key to tight Wembley tussle
Tottenham Hotspur haven’t been involved in an FA Cup final since beating Nottingham Forest at the Old Wembley in 1991.
This year’s competition offers them a real chance of lifting the famous old pot for the first time in over a quarter of a century.
But they’ll have to overcome Manchester United first. And the Red Devils are notoriously difficult to beat at the last-four stage.
They’ve won 15 of their last 16 semi-final appearances in the FA Cup. That makes this afternoon’s match a difficult one to call.
However, Spurs effectively have home advantage in the match after playing at Wembley throughout the season. That, alongside their swashbuckling style of play, could prove the telling factor against the lethargic Mancunians.
When the sides last met back in January, the hosts caught the visitors cold by striking inside the first-minute through Christian Eriksen.
The Dane has bagged five goals in his last four matches. He’s 13/5 to Score Anytime this evening and could prove the key to the outcome of the tie.
Harry Kane returned to form on Tuesday night with a goal against Brighton & Hove Albion. The England forward is rated the most likely First Goalscorer at 3/1.
For Jose Mourinho’s men, it’s Romelu Lukaku who is 2/1 favourite to Score Anytime.
Yet it’s Jesse Lingard who jumps off the page. Why? Well the 25-year-old has a habit of finding the net on the big occasions.
Neither side will want to give anything away as they battle for the final piece of silverware available to them this season.
