This will be Manchester United’s 29th appearance in the FA Cup semi-finals – equalling Arsenal’s record set last season. 

Tottenham have lost each of their last seven FA Cup semi-final ties – the longest such run in the competition’s history.

After a run of progressing from 13 straight FA Cup semi-finals, the Red Devils have been eliminated from two of their last three (2009 vs Everton and 2011 vs Man City). 

This will be the fourth occasion of the same two teams playing against each other at Wembley in different competitions within the same season. 

Man Utd have won each of their last three FA Cup ties against Tottenham (1997, 2008 and 2009), last losing to them in a third round replay in January 1980.

Spurs have won three of their last five meetings with Man Utd in all competitions (L2), as many as they had in their previous 36 against them.

Tottenham are the highest scorers in this season’s FA Cup, netting 17 goals in their six games. 

Romelu Lukaku has scored in each round Man Utd have played in so far this season, netting five goals in total.

Son Heung-min has had a hand in 14 goals in his 15 FA Cup appearances (9 goals, 5 assists) – more than any other player in the competition over the past three seasons

Alexis Sanchez has scored five goals in his four FA Cup games at Wembley Stadium, including the winning goals in both of his semi-final appearances.
