Chelsea vs Tottenham Betting Tips
These two are locked in a title race in the Premier League right now, but this is the FA Cup and different motivations take over. It's a huge game in its own right with it being a local derby, at Wembley and with a spot in the FA Cup final up for grabs.
The FA Cup is the second biggest trophy either Chelsea or Tottenham can win this season too, so it's a massive deal. There's still a tough task to come in the final against Arsenal or Manchester City, but the focus has to be on Saturday evening.
Going into the game it is Tottenham that have the better form right now and despite Chelsea's four point lead at the top of the table, it is Spurs that have the positive momentum too. They have won eight games in succession and there's arguably no team in Europe in a better place.
Mauricio Pochettino has moulded a seriously talented squad based around young English talent with Dele Alli and Harry Kane at the front of everything this team does well. They also have a rock solid defence, top class goalkeeper and all the mixture of attributes you'd want in a midfield from Victor Wanyama's power to Christian Eriksen's creativity.
You could argue Tottenham are the best team to watch in European football right now and at times in the last few weeks, on their way to eight successive wins, they've looked unstoppable.
Of course, Chelsea will feel they have what it take. A small amount of doubt has crept in and this will work as motivation for Antonio Conte's team to prove a few people wrong. They will want to beat Tottenham and stamp their authority on the 2016/2017 season.
We think it is Pochettino's men that will have the edge though. Chelsea aren't keeping clean sheets at the moment and against Alli and co, they won't end this run on Saturday.
