Despite jose's down playing the possibility of branding the season being branded a failure should Man U fail to win the FA cup, some supporters of the side insist that the only way they can be happy for the season is to clinch the trophy after losing the premier league title to rival neighbours Manchester city.
Moving on to Tottenham, after coming close to winning the Premier League on a pair of occasions, there was much interest if they could challenge again.
For all their recent woes, Wenger is still likely to be remembered as the North London side's greatest ever manager, achieving countless impressive feats while revolutionising British football in the process with his innovative ideas about diet and training methods et cetera. However, they went on to top the group, even getting a famous win against Real Madrid on the way.
Everton boss Sam Allardyce jokingly awarded himself a rating of 11 out of 10 after Toffees fans were sent a survey asking how they felt the former England manager was managing at Goodison Park.
Wednesday night's Premier League game away to Bournemouth was an opportunity for many fringe players to prove to Mourinho that they want to fight for the jersey and they deserve to play at Wembley.
At a press conference, the 55-year-old told reporters: "First of all, to thank them [Fulham] because they let us use the best facilities".
Zidane downplays anti-Real Madrid sentiments
The Frenchman has netted just five league goals this campaign, again unable to strike in Madrid's 2-1 victory at Malaga on Sunday .
Mourinho has used a 4-2-3-1 system extensively this season but might revert to a 3-man midfield for this crunch tie.
Yet to finish the season without any silverware would be very disappointing. They topped a group of death in the Champions League and really should have qualified to the quarterfinals.
Tottenham have played their home games at the national stadium this season while the club's new stadium is being built.
"It would be fantastic to add that trophy to the club but what would put us to a different level would be to win the Premier League or Champions League".
He said: "That is what we are changing at Tottenham".
Mourinho has overseen a stark improvement this season with United already recording more points and scoring more goals than they managed in his first campaign at Old Trafford. Where Spurs project an image of unity and togetherness - apart from when Harry Kane goes after Christian Eriksen's goals, of course - United are disjointed and disparate, a team of supremely talented individuals who grind and screech against each other on the pitch like oversized cogs in a faulty machine. Tottenham have looked solid all season and I think they'll just edge this one tomorrow.
