Ander Herrera’s second half effort completed the comeback against Tottenham to send Man United into the FA Cup final.

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli said Spurs “let ourselves down” in falling to Manchester United 2-1 after taking an early lead in Saturday’s FA Cup semifinal.

Despite playing in their regular home venue at Wembley Stadium, Tottenham fell short at the penultimate stage of the competition for an eighth consecutive time.

Alli provided the opener in the 10th minute to put Spurs ahead, but goals in each half from Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera put United through to their record-matching 20th final appearance.

“We let ourselves down, it’s very disappointing,” Alli told the BBC. “We have to try and pick ourselves up and finish the season strongly.

“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.”
