‘We Let Ourselves Down In FA Cup Defeat To Manchester United – Dele Alli
Dele Alli’s early goal had given Mauricio Pochettino ‘s side the lead, although Tottenham were unable to prevent United from clawing their way back into the game through Alexis Sanches, before Ander Herrera sent Jose Mourinho ‘s men into the final with an adroit finish in the second half.
“We let ourselves down, it’s very disappointing. We have to try and pick ourselves up and finish the season strongly,” Alli told BBC Sport after the defeat.
“You can’t go 1-0 up and then 2-1 down against a team like Manchester United. We can’t put ourselves in that situation.
“We were dominant from the first minute and it only looked to be going one way.
“Everyone talks. We want to win trophies, we have the staff that want to win. We can’t keep doing this. We can’t throw it away. We have got to improve.”
