Chelsea star Cahill doubtful for Saturday's FA Cup semi-final

"For me they are an fantastic team with an unbelievable coach in Mauricio Pochettino", he told the London Evening Standard.

This will be very important game for Tottenham since they will have a chance to disrupt stability and confidence of Conte's men's ahead of tricky fixtures against Southampton and Everton, and of course to stay in the fight for the trophy.

"We are, over two seasons, the best or the more consistent", Pochettino said.

The veteran defender won 14 major honours with the blues, including four league titles and the champions league.

"There is a moment you have to finish considering yourself an underdog". With West Brom above not playing this week they could move within a point of 8th with a win in this game.

Mauricio Pocchetino matched Chelsea 3-4-3 despite being without both his first-choice wing-backs, Heung-Min Son starting on the left and Kieran Trippier on the right.

The little Belgian scored before setting up Matic for the winning goal within minutes in the second half.

Easter Sunday: Day of resurrection - why it is important to Christians?
The long holidays also afford people who live away from their families the chance to travel back to catch up with affairs at home. There seems to be a lack of good news: leastways, if we took note of what is presented to us over and over, we might think so.

A drab game secured a point that lifted Everton into sixth place above Arsenal, which has three games in hand.

There are lasting concerns about the fitness of goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who missed the defeat to Manchester United Sunday with an ankle injury, while Marcos Alonso was ruled out through illness. We know what it's like to play at Wembley, we're comfortable and confident - but Spurs might just get carried away with the romance of The FA Cup.

You can make a case that this is the real, genuine FA Cup final as you have the top two teams in the league squaring off against each other. Five of the 36-year-old's 14 trophies were FA Cup wins.

"Saturday will have nothing to do with the league". It is their home form which has seen Everton maintain pressure on the top six above.

"The problem is that John wants to play regularly and for this reason I think that we have to respect his decision". There is something magical about taking a group of footballers who are not challenging for the top honours and then working so hard with them that they turn into challengers.

"They have the advantage".

Well, looking at both sides on paper and throughout the season, there will certainly be no shortage of quality. At the weekend they travel to Bournemouth who have not won in their last four games. We've seen recently they are quite open to a counter attacker and believe we can exploit that.
