FA Cup – Semi-finals: Chelsea vs Tottenham Prediction and Betting Tips. In the Semi-finals of FA Cup, Chelsea host Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Chelsea vs Tottenham.
Chelsea will have an advantage in the Semis of FA Cup against Tottenham and they hope their supporters will help them to reach the final. In this moment, for home side is more important to keep the first position in Premier League. After defeat against Manchester United in the previous round, the difference between Chelsea and Tottenham is only four points, so home side have to think more about the match against Southampton on Tuesday and try to win that game. It doesn’t mean that they are not interested in this game. This is important game for Blues and they will try to beat city rivals and qualify in the final. Their manager Antonio Conte will use the best possible lineup, so it means that they want victory in this game. Hazard, Costa and Pedro will lead the attack, so it will be interesting to see them against one of the best defences in England.
Tottenham play fantastic this season in all competitions, so their primary goal is to win at least one trophy. They need two victories in FA Cup in order to achieve that, but it won’t be easy because they are playing against Chelsea away. On the other side, they are only 4 points behind home side in league, so the title is not too far, but this game is more important for them in this moment. Their coach Mauricio Pochettino will probably play more defensively than usual, so we can expect that Son will start on the bench, while behind their top scorer Harry Kane will play Dele and Eriksen. Kane has recovered from an injury and get back in the big style, so he will be the most dangerous player for Chelsea’s defence. Spurs will play against Crystal Palace away in Premier League on Wednesday, so they also think about that game, but they believe that victory against city rivals will shake Chelsea and they could make something in league and eventually win the title.
Home side have almost full squad available, but few players are doubtful such as Courtois, Alonso, Cahill and Moses, so their manager will decide who will play before the match start. On the other side, visitors will be without Rose, Lamela, Vorm and Winks.
