Tottenham boss Pochettino: Rochdale deserved Wembley replay

The Spotland pitch before it was relaid

"It was an wonderful game". The build-up to their fifth-round tie was dominated by the state of their surface, but they should now be defined by their bravery, their eagerness to attack and by what Keith Hill described as the "raw emotion" that greeted their late equaliser.

"It was sacrificial behaviour at times, and going 1-0 up we nearly lit the bomb and knew what would come".

Romelu Lukaku scored twice for United as they won 2-0 in a match where Jose Mourinho's side had to make do without Paul Pogba after the midfielder withdrew on the morning of the match with an unspecified "illness".

Tottenham will play at Wembley if they reach the FA Cup semi-finals, Sky Sports News understands.

"I don't know how much it is worth but a lot of money has gone into the new pitch", Hill said.

In front of their home support and undoubtedly eager to avoid the exhaustion of extra time and penalties, Spurs will approach the replay against Rochdale with a renewed focus.

TOTTENHAM are facing a backlash over the possibility of playing a "home" FA Cup semi-final at Wembley. We have another opportunity at Wembley, the same situation like before. "I think we have a lot of quality and a great structure and I think we can arrive at the end of the season with a trophy".

Newcastle are scheduled to play a Live TV Premier League match at Wembley on Friday 16 March buy that is dependent on Spurs being free on what is also FA Cup sixth round day. "The FA Cup is magic", said Pochettino, as the Argentinian gave voice to one of English football's best-loved, but in this case apt, cliches.

Jones said: "I just think once the game's done and dusted that's the game, you can't have retrospective refereeing of decisions being done".

'We have another opportunity at Wembley, the same situation like before, the Argentinian added.

"I was not surprised". "This competition is completely different. (In the previous round) Newport gave us a fantastic game and they lost their next game in the league 5-0".

Newcastle fans are looking at no football for three weeks.

Spurs remained jittery and Rochdale produced a attractive passage of play to move ahead on the brink of half-time. We produced a big game against Juventus away. The FA believe the matter to have already been "resolved", having held a board meeting with leading Premier League clubs before the start of the season, where no "objections" were raised. That was until Rochdale rode to the rescue.

However, the Dale stayed positive and got their rewards in injury time when sub Davies slotted home from inside the box, a goal which understandably sent the home fans and coaching staff wild.

"Not lengthy delays as incidents are reviewed by video technology, wavy lines indicating an offside call or draws made before teams have even played".

Lucas Moura Team 1, Rochdale 1.

Ladbrokes' Alex Apati said: "Man United's victory was to be expected, but Rochdale's comeback made for a real coupon-buster". I want to say thanks to God because I'm very happy.
