He added: “Of course it [returning to Wembley] is huge a motivation.
“We enjoyed winning a trophy and it has to be the fuel for the next one and push for that idea and that has to bring extra energy to beat Fulham.”
One player key for United this season is Marcus Rashford, who netted his 27th goal of the campaign during his side’s 1-0 win over Real Betis on Thursday night.
And Ten Hag is happy with the way the 25-year-old has developed. He said: “He progressed during the season.
“He was not in the best shape when he started the season but the way of playing gives him a base and he brings his skills in and his attitude and mentality and that is bringing in a lot of progress and gives the team a lot of joy and gives him a lot of goals and us a lot of wins.”
