Tottenham 2-1 Man Utd: Spurs have lost each of their last seven FA Cup semi-finals so Pochettino will be desperate to take that final step this weekend.
He lifted it with United in 2016 but was sacked two days later and that is the mark of the club and shows what really matters for them.
The Blues were Premier League champions last season, but their title defence has not gone well and they are scrapping for a top four finish towards the end of the campaign. Meanwhile, the phantom of Mourinho's customary third-season implosion haunts the corridors of the Theatre of Dreams, moaning theatrically.
But I think the progress they have made under Pochettino is already obvious, and it is remarkable in that it has happened much quicker than anyone ever thought it would.
Eagles-Jaguars London game time and date set
It will be a rematch of last January's NFC Championship Game, won 38-7 by the eventual Super Bowl-champion Eagles . Additionally, the Kansas City Chiefs at Los Angeles Rams game will be played at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City.
"I promise you the club is not going to change if you win or don't win the FA Cup or the League Cup", he said.
"For that we need to work hard, to try to push every season and be competitive and competitive".
Former Premier League star and current pundit Robbie Savage has torn into Tottenham over their lack of silverware and dealt a damning blow to manager Mauricio Pochettino for his trophy record. "I was champions with Chelsea with 95 points", Mourinho said.
If I was playing for Spurs I would have been watching that game and thinking "please do not lose" because you know they are going to be up for what comes next.
"And then, of course, it's not because you're going to provide players to play Champions League or Europa League, you are going to attract them or not. This time is away but I don't see any advantage, for me it's the same as playing 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.
The Portuguese has thanked Fulham and head coach Slavisa Jokanovic for allowing United to use their facilities as they prepare for Saturday's showdown.
