Spurs flying high ahead of FA Cup semis vs Chelsea

Spurs flying high ahead of FA Cup semis vs Chelsea

And Spurs, who have now only beaten Chelsea twice in 17 attempts, equalised when Kane flicked the ball into the far corner with a stooping header from Eriksen's cross. Hazard and Costa were introduced, along with Cesc Fabregas, with devastating effect. Nemanja Matic put the seal on the Blues' victory with a stunning 25-yard thunderbolt that crashed in off the bar with Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris left standing.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has made bold claims about the club, stating that Spurs are at the same level as Liverpool and Manchester United, while being above the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal in terms of popularity.

Spurs midfielder Eric Dier said that the club's dismal record at Wembley, where they played their home European matches earlier this season, will not affect their performance today.

Tottenham's afternoon was neatly summed up in injury time when Kane's fizzing free-kick squirmed under Courtois' body but stopped on the line for the keeper to gather.

With an hour remaining and Tottenham, leaders Chelsea's only rivals in the title race, in the ascendancy Conte sent on Hazard and Costa with Willian and Michy Batshuayi making way.

"In this case I think for this position Ake has the right characteristic to be the substitute to Gary", said Conte. No I joke, it will be a fantastic game. I certainly think we can win our last six league games. How do you play without emotion in the face of such loss? We have another hard game coming up against Crystal Palace.

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer?

Rojo was hopeful his injury was not serious after he was taken off the pitch in the first half against Anderlecht. The Swede hyper-extended his right leg and looked in considerable pain as he landed on the limb awkwardly.

"Maybe [the winners could land a psychological blow] - we will see about that", he said.

"With this team, and with the people working for it, we will get a trophy - 100 per cent". It is a tough league to play but we are OK. We dominated the game but they were more clinical than us. "That is our objective".

"But really we want to be in the final and we will try to do everything to be there".

Both teams have great attacking potential.

Kyle Walker, 26, is also axed from the Tottenham defence, following the 4-0 win over Bournemouth last time out, with Kieran Trippier coming into the starting eleven.

"They are a great team".
