Pochettino raises questions over future after Spurs' FA Cup defeat

Jesse Lingard could solidify his place in England's World Cup squad with a very good display

Antonio Conte expects Chelsea to be underdogs when they face Manchester United in the FA Cup final, and says he has "no problem" with Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea are into the FA Cup final after a 2-0 semifinal win over Southampton.

Alexis Sanchez pulled the visitors to London level, before Ander Herrera provided the killer punch with a powerful low shot fired underneath Michel Vorm in the second half. Last season we arrived in the final as favourites; this season we will arrive not as favourites, but last season we lost the final despite being favourites at that moment'.

"So let's prepare properly, but now let's focus on Arsenal (United's next league game) because we want to finish the season in second".

"Jose is a manager that has won everything and when we don't win, when we don't play well, he gets very angry, but you need to be demanding like that to be successful". He asks me to play a free role, to enjoy myself, to attack, defend, to do everything!

"I have no problem with him and I don't think he has a problem [with me]", he told French TV show Canal Football Club.

The FA Cup is the only trophy left on offer for the 20-time Premier League champions to aim for and with Mourinho often pointing out "improvements" from his first season to the current.

"If we had more consistency we could have been up there with Manchester City now".

"This final is a game between two great teams", said the Italian.

He also hit back at United's critics.


"Tottenham in the last four years that you follow our process we are building a very good team, trying to create the winning mentality".

"For now I'm at Manchester United, I really only think about the present", he said.

However, with their only three defeats of 2018 all coming at Wembley against the toughest of opposition in Juventus, Man City and now United, questions remain over Pochettino's ability to turn Tottenham into trophy winners.

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.

"Today I made a decision to start with Olivier because I knew we had to play against the three central defenders, very strong physically, so I chose to start with Olivier".
