Chelsea v Spurs - FA Cup Semi - Early Team-News
Wembley is the stage this Saturday tea-time for what could be a monumental FA Cup semi-final between two of London`s fiercest rivals.
The familiar stadium will be rocking as Chelsea and Spurs go head-to-head to play either Manchester City or Arsenal in the 2017 FA Cup Final.
The fact that both Chelsea and Spurs have ambitions of also winning the Premier League gives the tie that extra special edge with the winners knowing they still have a chance of doing a unique double.
Ahead of the fixture we have some early team-news for you to digest.
Starting with Chelsea -
Gary Cahill is a major doubt for Chelsea with the defender having picked up an illness that has seen him spend two nights in hospital. If Cahill is deemed not fit enough to play then Kurt Zouma or John Terry could step into the void.
Thibaut Courtois missed the defeat against Manchester United, at Old Trafford, courtesy of an ankle injury that was picked up filming a NBA Basketball commercial, the Belgian keeper is expected to be fit to play.
Marcos Alonso was a late withdrawal in the same game at Old Trafford, after feeling unwell, the wing-back is also expected to be fit enough to play.
Continuing with Tottenham -
Hugo Lloris, the French international keeper, is expected to make his first FA Cup start since 2014. Spurs usually select Michael Vorm for FA Cup ties but has picked up a knee injury and isn`t available for selection.
Danny Rose, selected for the PFA Team of the Year, has returned to training but this game has come far too early for the defender to feature.
May the best side (us) emerge victorious!
