Mourinho: 'Too much United criticism'

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho responds to the club's FA Cup semi-final win over Tottenham Hotspur by suggesting that his side perhaps get "too much criticism".

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has suggested that his side perhaps get "too much criticism" following the club's 2-1 FA Cup semi-final win over Tottenham Hotspur.

United bounced back from an early Dele Alli finish to claim a slender victory at Wembley Stadium, as goals either side of half time from Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera sent Mourinho's side into the final.

"We deserve it. If we split the match into periods we were the best team for many of these periods. Even when they had the ball when we were winning we were totally in control," Mourinho told reporters after the game.

"We lost control after the 1-0. At half time we spoke - we came back late for the second half because we spoke a lot - and organised ourselves. When you play away from home the supporters were phenomenal.

"We should ask ourselves why there is too many critics on all of us? We can finish second with six more points. To do that with all the fantastic teams we play against will be an achievement for a club that couldn't do it for a few years now.

"And it will be a fourth final in three years. So, maybe too much criticism."

United will now face either Chelsea or Southampton as they try to clinch their 13th FA Cup crown.
