ON THE TEE: Wesley Bryan shows there's a lot more to his game than trick videos
Man Utd face Southampton in the EFL Cup final on Sunday and there are four survivors from the 2010 final vs Aston Villa.
Smith, who survived three dropped catches on Friday, lived dangerously after surviving another spilled chance on 67 and a close lbw appeal on 73.
In Saturday's semi-final he will face Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who thumped compatriot Gilles Simon 6-4, 6-1.
Milos Raonic survived a scare to book his place in the last four of the Delray Beach Open in Florida. He had to come from a set down to beat Britain's Kyle Edmund, eventually triumphing 4-6 6-3 6-4.
THE NUMBERS GAME - KIERAN GILL: With Mata, United's win percentage is 55 per cent. Without, it is 40 per cent. They score more and so have won more this season.
