On the other hand, Jose Mourinho’s Man United didn’t get so lucky, as they were given the tough draw of facing Tottenham, a side who have already beaten them once at Wembley already this campaign.

It’ll certainly be a tough task for Mourinho’s men, however if anyone knows how to get the best out of their players in a tough situation, there aren’t many better than it than the former Chelsea chief.

The two matches are set to take place at Wembley and will be held on the dates of the 21st and the 22nd of April.
