Pochettino: Chelsea favourites in Cup semi

GK Simon Mignolet- Made some crucial saves to help his side clinch a vital three points

Both teams will be gunning for a second piece of silverware this season with one of the sides all but guaranteed to lift the Premier League title before the FA Cup final in May.

There aren't too many teams that can attack with the pace and power of City and with Sergio Aguero at the front of their spine they have one of the best forwards in world football.

Pochettino is waiting to lift his first trophy as a manager, while the Tottenham squad have only a handful of winners' medals between them. "We are talking of the team that maybe in the last five years has won European competitions. a manager that won the league with Juventus in Italy".

Two years before that, Portsmouth beat them 2-0 after extra time at the same stage of the competition and at the same stadium.

Spurs trail their London rivals by just four points in the Premier League with the title race set to go down to the wire.

Third-place Liverpool hosts Palace seeking a win to move five points clear of City, although Liverpool will have played two more games. "Even if we didn't put the cherry on top", said Alessandro Del Piero after his last game for the club, "we did still take home the cake".

One of the three victims was shot at a bus stop near a Catholic Charities office and another was shot in the agency's parking lot. Fresno police said Muhammad, was also wanted in connection with the shooting of a security guard and has a criminal record.

"Not a serious problem, but now Gary is getting better and is improving a lot". They have only conceded 22 goals, which is the lowest of any team in the League thus far.

"We have great momentum and that is the most important because that can change very quickly". We have different kinds of monsters.

The form in which Spurs' attacking trio of Dele Alli, Son and Harry Kane are going to be in tomorrow is surely going to make a big contribution to tomorrow's result, and we can only hope Chelsea can step up their game from the defeat at Old Trafford. When we started to train on Tuesday, he came with a bit of a fever. He also spent two years in charge of West Ham United before the club terminated the Italian's contract after finishing 17th in the Premier League.

"He received immediate treatment on site from our medical staff before being transferred to hospital by ambulance". They will have an unwanted chance to add to that total next season after being relegated from League One.
