Diego Costa And Eden Hazard On Bench - Chelsea Team vs Tottenham Confirmed

Tottenham's new 61,000-seater stadium is looming up alongside White Hart Lane although it is likely to be another 18 months before they can move into it.

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

The last time the London rivals faced off against each other was in the Premier League and the 21-year-old well and truly stole the show.

Tottenham Hotspur fans could be excused for putting their faith in the old mantra "what goes around comes around" as Saturday's seismic FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea looms.

"They are doing something important, this is their third year".

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino claimed that Chelsea were the favourites for the match, despite Tottenham going into the London derby in the better form.

"If you don't want to play for Spurs at the moment you are a mug because it's so exciting, the team is exciting the facilities are second to none".

Asmir Begovic was given his first Premier League start of the season in Sunday's 2-0 defeat at Manchester United after Courtois suffered the injury during a promotional event, involving basketball, for Chelsea's preseason tour of China.

Most observers expect Saturday's FA Cup semifinal at Wembley to be an absolute humdinger between what are clearly the two best sides in the Premier League. I think this is the right moment.

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. "I was a footballer and I know when you arrive at this point of your career and your mind and your body tells you to continue because you feel you can, but you want to play regularly, it's right to continue". Look at Barcelona with Pep [Guardiola], with Tito Vilanova, with Frank Rijkaard, with Luis Enrique - all different managers, but with the same group of players and they were successful. Diego to China? I repeat, the most important thing for us is to be focused.

"He may find it hard at Wembley, where he will have to cover even more ground".

The team is considerably more vulnerable now than they were in the end of 2016. I think he's a good player and I think he's ready to have this opportunity, to have this chance. "But we are in a good moment, too, and we are hungry to challenge".
