Tottenham Hotspur have come into this week high on spirits, after Chelsea’s Premier League defeat to Manchester United saw the Blues’ advantage at the top of the table slip to just four points.
The Lilywhites have excelled this season under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino and will be confident of inflicting further damage on Chelsea’s campaign this weekend, as the two London giants battle-it-out at Wembley for a spot in the FA Cup final.

Sitting with the Spurs punters at the bar, he’s scribbled down a devastating looking 4-2-3-1 formation for this weekend’s tie that can emerge successful in this huge battle.
