Momentum with Spurs for FA Cup semifinal showdown vs Chelsea

Galena Nuncio | 21 Abril, 2017, 22:23

- - - April 2012, FA Cup semi-final Tottenham 1 Chelsea 5 The last time the sides met in the FA Cup proved a sucker punch for Harry Redknapp's Tottenham side, who were chasing a top-four finish in the league and were above Chelsea.

Pochettino's team head to Wembley on the back of a seven-match winning run that has lifted them within four points of Chelsea in the title race. - - - Dec 1997, Premier League Tottenham 1 Chelsea 6 The balance of power had well and truly shifted to west London by the time of this clash.

Anthony Knockaert is one of four Brighton players in the Championship Team of the Year.

Sky Bet find it nearly impossible to pick a favourite for the first FA Cup semi-final, with Chelsea marginally shorter odds at 13/8 to win in 90 minutes and 10/11 to make the final. "I just expect a really good match and we've created a bit more of a rivalry with Chelsea over the years so it will be an interesting game", the midfielder said.

Blues, Penguins skate to commanding 3-0 leads
At some point, if Minnesota is going to make a series out of this, it has to start converting on some of these golden chances. We know everyone has to chip in, and that's a big thing we have had going for us this season. "That's all it comes down to".

After being marked out of the game by Ander Herrera on Sunday, Eden Hazard will be looking to get back to form against Tottenham.

Tottenham are likely to be without Michelle Vorm, Harry Winks, Danny Rose and Erik Lamela as they all continue to recover from injuries, according to Physioroom.com.

And it's surely a double negative that not only are they being deprived of the home comforts of fortress White Hart Lane on Saturday, Spurs are playing the game at a stadium where they've struggled badly. There are six games remaining.

Terry would love to bow out by helping Chelsea regain the title and he has so far made no mention of his next destination, with China or the United States potential options, as well as possibly staying in the Premier League with a team like Bournemouth or Stoke.

UK MPs back Theresa May's call for election
An enhanced Parliamentary majority would also make it harder, she said, for those trying to frustrate her Brexit strategy. May's call for an early election came after firm assurances that she would not seek a new election before 2020.

Punters seem to be keeping faith with the Blues though as the market starts to take shape with them narrow favourites to win in 90 minutes and a fraction of odds-on to qualify for next month's final.

The Chelsea Ladies striker netted nine goals in 16 games last season, but her 102-cap England career looks to be over after missing out on this summer's tournament in the Netherlands. Without the Spaniard's goals, Chelsea have looked more like a bull without the horns.

The pain continued last year when Tottenham needed a first win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge for 26 years to keep alive their hopes of catching Leicester City in the title race. That patience will be tested at Wembley.

Manchester United, Liverpool and Everton have one player in the side, while Arsenal does not have a single representative in the team, which is voted for by fellow professional footballers.
