Get­ting away from it all helped Reds

JOSE Mour­inho be­lieves United’s change of prepa­ra­tions for their FA Cup semi-fi­nal against Spurs played a key role in their Wem­b­ley win.

The Reds re­cov­ered from con­ced­ing Dele Alli’s 11th-minute strike to win 2-1 through goals from Alexis Sanchez and An­der Her­rera.

Mour­inho over­saw a dras­tic change in United’s train­ing prepa­ra­tions in the build-up to the fix­ture.

The Reds flew to Bournemouth on Tues­day af­ter­noon ahead of their Pre­mier League fix­ture on Wed­nes­day and jour­neyed to Lon­don af­ter their 2-0 win at the Vi­tal­ity Sta­dium. United trained at Ful­ham’s Craven Cot­tage, while Mour­inho also held his pre-match press con­fer­ence in the team’s ho­tel in Chelsea.

Mour­inho also re­vealed he held in­di­vid­ual con­ver­sa­tions ahead of what was their big­gest game of the cam­paign.

Mour­inho said: “The fact we stayed to­gether for five days was good, we stayed away from Manch­ester, away from home, we stayed in Lon­don, we stayed to­gether, we spend our time, I had the chance to speak with some in­di­vid­u­ally, ev­ery­thing was re­ally good.”
