Sadio Mane named in PFA Team of the Year

The Argentine also masterminded a 2-0 league victory over Chelsea in January, a result that abruptly ended the Blues 13-match unbeaten run in the top-flight.

"If there is one favourite, it's more Chelsea because they are on the top of the table in the Premier League and (with) the experienced players they have, and the manager that they have", Pochettino said on Thursday.

It's tough to criticize much about Chelsea's spectacular season, and whether they end up winning the title or not, Antonio Conte has been wildly successful at turning around the doldrums of Jose Mourinho's final year at Stamford Bridge and setting sail towards more fruitful waters.

"With this team, and with the people working for it, we will get a trophy - 100 per cent".

Swansea City manager Paul Clement says he is interested in signing John Terry when the veteran central defender leaves Chelsea this summer, providing his struggling side avoid relegation from the Premier League.

While Juventus stormed to their three straight titles, totting up a remarkable 102 points in the 2013-14 season, Conte never won a cup to go with it. But to win is more hard.

Tottenham have not won the competition since 1991 against Nottingham Forest at the old Wembley, while Chelsea last won it as recently as 2012 against Liverpool.

But despite the two sides being evenly matched over 32 games in the top-flight, Pochettino kick-started the mind games when he said Chelsea were the clear favourites to progress to the final.

Since the start of last season Spurs have taken 141 EPL points - 11 more than Manchester City and 16 more than Chelsea. "I hope to be a part of it", Begovic said.

Chelsea are seeking a win over Tottenham which, as well as securing a place in the FA Cup final, would boost morale and confidence for the Premier League run-in. Players are too quick to move on from club to club now but congratulations to him.

Wenger has been under fire from fans calling for his resignation throughout a lacklustre campaign and he has yet to announce if he will extend his 21-year reign beyond this season.

Rovers' James Coppinger and John Marquis (who has scored 26 this season) are in midfield and attack respectively, with Portsmouth duo Christian Burgess and Enda Stevens named in defence. So of course we are all fully focused on that.
