FA Cup taking on added importance for United, Chelsea, Spurs

Son Heung Min has had a hand in 13 goals in his last 10 starts in the FA Cup

After Erik Lamela increased Tottenham's lead before half-time, Eriksen struck again after the interval to make it seven goals in 10 matches against Swansea.

No Kane, but Spurs have netted seven goals spread among five different scorers, with an FA Cup semi-final place secured and those who questioned how they might respond to the crushing disappointment of the Champions League exit answered in ruthlessly decisive manner.

Pochettino introduced Dele Alli and Fernando Llorente from the bench late on and the Spaniard went close to scoring towards the end during a goalmouth scramble, but his failure to do so against his former team had no impact on the outcome as Spurs march on in the FA Cup.

Spurs had also seen VAR dominate proceedings in the fifth-round replay against Rochdale, with Pochettino equally critical of several stoppages in the first half of their 6-1 win.

While Spurs can now look forward to a semi-final at Wembley, their temporary home, next month, Swansea's focus must return to the grind of the relegation battle and trying to preserve their Premier League status.

"[A trophy] is an option now", Pochettino said. We are in the semi-final because we deserve it.

Jordan Ayew has been suspended after receiving a straight red card in Swansea City's last week Premier League game against Huddersfield last week while Andre is cup-tied, having featured for his erstwhile club West Ham.

This was only their third defeat in 17 games since Carlos Carvalhal was appointed manager but it was a chastening experience and with the exception of Alfie Mawson, who has just been called up to the England squad, it was hard to think of anyone who emerged with credit. "The FA Cup has been a fantastic run for us - our best since 1964 - and this has not created any harm or damage for the future".

"Hopefully there's something more to reach, but I'm happy where I am and where the team is and we're going in the right direction". We know they were more used to the bigger stages, they don't need the ball as much'.
