A goal from Christian Eriksen inside 11 seconds set Spurs on their way to another Wembley victory. Here’s how we rated the players in their 2-0 win against Manchester United.
Hugo Lloris: 8
Made some very important saves to ensure United did not find an easy route back into the game. Blocked at the feet of Jesse Lingard, turned aside Anthony Martial’s near-post effort and kept out a Romelu Lukaku drive.
Kieran Trippier: 8
A night when this season’s exit of Kyle Walker made perfect sense. A marauding presence down the right flank. Chewed up the turf with pace and verve and found time to subdue Alexis Sanchez.
Davinson Sanchez: 7
Hardly put a foot wrong. Always seemed in the right place at the right time and managed to pinch the ball off United toes on more than one occasion.
Jan Vertonghen: 7
A superbly composed display at the heart of the defence. Always looked in charge and ready to mount the next Spurs attack.
Ben Davies: 6
A good outing on the left flank. Davies did his job of helping snuff out danger and never looked too ruffled on an off-night for the visitors.
Eric Dier: 6
Helped clog the central areas when Lingard or Lukaku threatened to thread their way through gaps.
Christian Eriksen: 8

His goal was the highlight of a fine display of astute passing and positional play. United never got to grips with him.
Mousa Dembele: 8
Completely eclipsed Paul Pogba with his energy and strength on the ball. Another of those nights when you understood just why Spurs fans love him so much. Given a rousing send off when subbed at the end.
Dele Alli: 6
Not the main man this time, but still an excellent part of Tottenham’s attacks and link-up play. Also went close to adding to his goal tally for the season.
Son Heung-Min: 7
Bright, always available and involved in so many of those typical rapid-fire counter-attacks. The South Korean is truly in a rich vein of form.
Harry Kane: 7
Bullied United defenders all night. His flicked header set up the opening goal and his mere presence panicked Phil Jones into the own goal which doubled Spurs’ lead.
