Cahill to miss semi-final after kidney stone treatment

Pochettino has claimed that his side will be the underdogs when they take on Conte's Chelsea outfit in the FA Cup semi-final on Saturday.

In all, 14 clubs have been represented in the last 10 Premier League teams of the year.

"I think and I repeat the most important thing for us is to be focused on the present, to do what we are doing until now, to focus on the present, to finish a good season for us and then we want to do something extraordinary". They have the meanest defence around and arguably the hottest striker in Harry Kane.

"Tottenham are a really great power in English football, [and have been] working for three years", he told a pre-match news conference.

Antonio Conte's side last kept a clean sheet in the league on January 22, 11 games ago.

In those games, Palace and United played two up front to pressurize Chelsea's three-man backline.

Tottenham had finished fourth to Chelsea's sixth in the Premier League and ordinarily would have qualified for the Champions League.

There looks to be a formula to stop Chelsea, provided opponents have the personnel to achieve it, and Spurs clearly do.

"Tottenham is a great team".

"Even with the disappointment of last season we have kept fighting, and this season we are in an even better position... we have to keep improving and get better for next season as well. They are feeling the possibility to write the history".

With the Premier League leaders due to play their London rivals at Wembley this weekend, Conte fears it is too soon for the England global to return to action.

Danny Rose of Tottenham Hotspur and Pedro of Chelsea battle to win a header during their most recent Premier League match.

We will play against one of the best teams in Europe with a great manager, great players, players that have won European competitions and World Cups.

The PFA Premier League Team of the Season has been announced, and as usual, there are a number of outstanding players who may feel hard done by not to have been included in the XI. We've seen recently they are quite open to a counter attacker and believe we can exploit that.

"But we are in a good moment, too, and we are hungry to challenge this type of team".

"Commercial work is very important for the club".

Dele Alli and N'golo Kante are rewarded with places in the centre of the park, with Eden Hazard on the left. He made the cut last season, and if anything has only further underlined his quality this time round.
