Momentum with Spurs for FA Cup semifinal showdown vs Chelsea

John Terry is in line for a shock recall to the Chelsea starting XI for their FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham Hotspur after first choice defender Gary Cahill was deemed a major doubt.

Pochettino says his young team has learned lessons in the months since and called on his players to demonstrate their progression by seizing the moment at Wembley.

An FA Cup semifinal on its own merit bears gargantuan importance, the victor advancing for a chance to add the second most coveted domestic trophy - behind the Premier League crown - to the trophy cabinet.

The Chelsea Ladies striker netted nine goals in 16 games last season, but her 102-cap England career looks to be over after missing out on this summer's tournament in the Netherlands.

The Italian said: "Tottenham are a really great power in English football, they are working for three years".

He said: "We are playing one of the best teams in Europe and their manager has won lots of things in the last five years and I think they are the favourites".

Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel decided to make an attacking change after 26 minutes, when 19-year-old forward Ousmane Dembele replaced defender Erik Durm.

"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".

Danny Rose is out of Tottenham's FA Cup semi-final with Chelsea this weekend - but could return for the north London derby next week. Especially as his team did not have as much experience and quality as Max Allegri's side now aiming to go one better than they did in 2015 and win it.

"Will we have to be monsters too? Yes".

The last time they were in an FA Cup semi final, coincidentally it was Chelsea who faced them at Wembley, with Spurs losing 5-1 with former Blues legends Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard on the scoresheet that day. Tottenham attack at speed in such a way that they need a slick surface to accommodate their play, and their game suffers more than most at the hands of the Wembley pitch.

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois missed the United clash with an ankle injury and Marcos Alonso withdrew during the warm-up at Old Trafford due to a stomach bug, the Daily Telegraph said.

'He is a great captain, the problem is that John wants to play regularly and for this reason we have to respect his decision. "You are competing with big clubs and big players".

On the other side, Manchester City, at 17/20 are favored over Arsenal, who are backed at 14/5.
