Antonio Conte reacts to Chelsea v Tottenham FA Cup semi-final draw

Tottenham eased past Millwall with a 6-0 win on Sunday to earn a place in the last four alongside Manchester City and Arsenal.

City is without a doubt the team with the toughest road to the semifinals: four away ties against three Premier League teams and a Championship side fighting for promotion.

Chelsea were the last club to secure their place at Wembley in the FA Cup, with their 1-0 home win over FA Cup holders Manchester United earlier on Monday.

Chelsea Under-18 assistant boss Ed Brand has insisted that his side are greedy for silverware, ahead of their FA Youth Cup semi-final first leg clash against Tottenham Hotspur this evening.

With Chelsea having edged out Spurs at Stamford Bridge in November, their manager Antonio Conte stated that he's expecting an exciting game, given the two teams are 1-1 so far this season.

The victor of the semi will face either Manchester City or Arsenal in the final.

Chelsea and Spurs are now the top two teams in the Premier League with the Blues holding a 10-point lead at the summit. Among the five presently alive in the competition, they have won the FA Cup a combined 44 times including 12 of the last 15.

The ties will be played at Wembley on the weekend of April 22nd/23rd.
