Danny Rose 'set to miss Tottenham's FA Cup semi-final vs. Chelsea'


Kane, the league's top scorer last season, trails Everton's Romelu Lukaku of Everton by four goals with six Premier League games to play.

"We must understand this, that (something) really important is happening this season because we are doing a great job and a miracle if you consider last season and the problems we had".

Such a result would propel Conte's men into next Tuesday's Premier League game at home to Southampton with renewed confidence and the knowledge they could deliver a second psychological blow by pulling seven points clear of their closest challengers with a win 24 hours before Spurs make the hard trip to Palace.

"The pressure side of things [can have a huge affect], we see it in golf, in snooker, in darts".

"Saturday will have nothing to do with the League", the Chelsea stalwart added.

"Centre backs are much bigger and there's a lot more quality in the league". "We have to show the same response we did after losing to Crystal Palace, when we beat Manchester City and Bournemouth".

Chelsea will hope that all effects of the illness have subsided by Saturday when they take on Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Raised in Portugal, Dier can speak fluent Portuguese, and that's how he chatted to the TV channel after the win: "We have to believe to the end. Today, we deserved to lose the game", said Conte. "Remember Chelsea can still afford to drop a few more points, Spurs cannot", Nevin wrote on Chelsea's official website.

"Are Tottenham now favourites?"

Wright scored 185 goals in 288 games for Arsenal and was there 22 years ago when Spurs last finished above them in the Premier League. As a result, Chelsea didn't manage to muster a shot on target for the entire play.

After the match Chelsea manager Antonio Conte accepted responsibility for his side's uninspiring performance that meant the leaders' advantage over Tottenham remained at four points.
