Tottenham legend Ossie Ardiles has revealed that he feels that his former club will defeat Premier League leaders Chelsea when the two sides meet in the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday.
After a run of eight consecutive wins in the Premier League combined with slip ups from Chelsea, Mauricio Pochettino’s men have managed to close down the initially sizeable lead that the Blues had over them in the Premier League to just four points.
There is no doubt that they will fancy their chances against Antonio Conte’s men during the weekend, especially considering that they are a side, who currently have a high level of confidence.
Ardiles stated on social media outlet Twitter, “Next Saturday game is getting more and more important. By the hour. We have to play our football. We are better than them. COYS.”
In addition to wanting to defeat Chelsea in the FA Cup, Pochettino’s men will now fancy usurping their London rivals at the top of the Premier League standings.
