FA Cup


Chelsea v Tottenham Past Meetings

The last time these two met was in the FA Cup semi-final back in 2012, when the Blues thrashed their London rivals 5-1. It’s 1-1 in the league this season, with each club winning their home game.


Chelsea v Tottenham Stats

Pedro’s been directly involved in six of Chelsea’s 10 FA Cup goals this season, while Son Heung-min is currently the FA Cup’s top-scorer this season with six goals.

Spurs have lost their last five FA cup semi-finals – Chelsea are the only side to ever lose six in a row.


Chelsea Team News

Chelsea are hopeful of seeing Thibaut Courtois return for Saturday’s match. The Belgian keeper missed last weekend’s defeat with an ankle injury. Marcos Alonso also missed the Manchester United match through illness, but should be available again.


Tottenham Team News

Danny Rose is back in training, but this game comes too early for the left-back. He’ll sit out, alongside long-term absentees Harry Winks and Erik Lamela. Michel Vorm should be passed fit.


Reason for Chelsea v Tottenham Bets

Tottenham Hotspur fans were scarred by their last FA Cup encounter with Chelsea. They lost 5-1, but felt aggrieved by a controversial decision to give a goal to the Blues despite the ball not passing the line. None of the players currently at the club played in that match, but they’ll have their own vendetta against their London rivals after losing the title at Stamford Bridge last year.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have done well to put last season’s eventual misery behind them. They’ve been in outstanding form recently, winning their last seven Premier League games and edging ever nearer to league leaders Chelsea. The gap at the top has been reduced to just four points since United’s win over the Blues last weekend.

Antonio Conte’s side looked distinctively average against the Red Devils. Much has been said of the late injuries to key men Alonso and Courtois, and they certainly looked less sturdy at the back. Nevertheless, both are expected to be passed fit for Saturday’s match, if Conte chooses to field them.

Whilst winning this match would certainly be a timely morale boost ahead of the final Premier League run-in, it certainly isn’t a title decider. Both clubs have the ability to recover from a high-profile loss. Tottenham proved it after losing to Liverpool and Chelsea after losing to Spurs in January. However, their league proximity will add an extra bite to the match.

Whilst Chelsea have been so efficient this season, which lends itself well to a one-off decider, the Lilywhites have the edge due to their recent form. Back Spurs to qualify at 2/1 with William Hill. These are also the two toughest defences in England, and with nerves likely to play their part, expect a tight encounter. Back no first-half goals at 8/5 with William Hill.
