​Vertonghen says Tottenham have home advantage over Man Utd

Tottenham central defender Jan Vertonghen believes that his side have an advantage over Manchester United in their upcoming FA Cup semi final.

Vertonghen believes that Spurs have a massive benefit with the game being played at Wembley.

Spurs have been using Wembley as their home stadium this season - given the rebuilding going on at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham beat United at the same ground in the league a couple of months ago.

"Wembley is definitely not a disadvantage," Vertonghen said to the Daily Star.

"We're used to it now, even if the atmosphere will be a bit different because United will bring more supporters than usual.

"We feel very comfortable at Wembley, we've shown that over the last couple of months – not against Manchester City but before that we felt very comfortable.

"Hopefully we can have the same game as at the beginning of this year when we beat United in a very positive way."
