Jose Mourinho doesn’t believe Tottenham’s home advantage will mean anything in tomorrow’s FA Cup semi-final.

Mourinho’s United team meet Spurs at their temporary Wembley ‘home’ in the first of the weekend’s Cup games.

Some have suggested the game should be taking place on another neutral venue but Mourinho said: ‘Look I played one Cup final [with Inter Milan] in Roma’s stadium against Roma and I won.

“So I think when you go to these big moments, with this big decisions, semi-finals and finals, I don’t think it’s an advantage at all.

“In some countries, even the cup semi-final is played with a draw and you play at home or away, not a neutral ground like in England and that’s just football.

“So I look at this Tottenham game the same way I look at Huddersfield versus United or Brighton at Old Trafford.

“Sometimes it is home, sometimes it is away. This time is away but I don’t see any advantage.”
