Mourinho's Spurs survive Wycombe Wanderers scare to set up Manchester United tie

Bale scored Spurs' first goal of the 4-1 win, helping Mourinho's side erase an early 1-0 deficit in what started off as an FA Cup scare.

Bale started for the first time since December 23 and completed his first 90 minutes since returning on loan from Real Madrid.

There have been suggestions of a rift between the Welshman and Mourinho, after footage of the Portuguese manager asking Bale 'You want to stay here or go to Real Madrid?' emerged.

Bale has been on the periphery of Mourinho's team all season long, having appeared just four times in the Premier League this term.

"It was good, was good". "Some good movement. Some one and against ones, beating people, attacking people, creating chances". Of course, scoring a goal.

"I can not give players minutes", Mourinho said.

"If he feels, because it is also about his own feelings, that the week he had has had a positive impact on him and on his confidence he will play". "The players I brought from the bench come with the intention of bringing something to the team, so overall I think it was a good squad performance and a good result", Mourinho told BT Sport.

'Of course, the Championship [Wycombe's division] is a good, competitive level and the aggression is high and the intensity is good. Spurs needed three goals in the last five minutes to see off a plucky Wycombe side - the scoreline slightly flattered the Premier League outfit, although the visitors did dominate the second half.

Mourinho was surprisingly upbeat about the performance despite being held by the Championship side for nearly the entire match, even claiming he wouldn't have been upset if they lost to a late victor.

"We looked exhausted. We've given everything and there's no disgrace from our boys. Of course it will be very hard but we have to try".
