Alan Shearer: These four Tottenham players could be match winners against Chelsea
By Amir Mir
Alan Shearer believes Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen are Tottenham’s match winners ahead of their FA Cup clash against Chelsea.
The scene is set for a highly anticipated semi-final showdown at Wembley on Saturday evening which will see two heavyweights clash.
The winner of the all-London affair will await the team that is triumphant from the Arsenal and Manchester City showdown on Sunday afternoon.
Spurs go into their match having recorded seven wins on the bounce in the Premier League while their opponents suffered a 2-0 defeat at Manchester United last time out.
Ahead of the game, former Newcastle striker Shearer offered his thoughts on the contest and who the danger men will be for both teams.

“It is such a tight game to call because there are a number of match winners in both teams,” Shearer told Coral.
“When you look at the amount of goals in that Tottenham side, you have Kane, Son, Alli and Eriksen. Chelsea also have Costa, Hazard, Pedro, William and Fabregas so it sets us up for what should be an absolutely cracking game and one that I am really looking forward to.”
Striker Kane is the club’s top goalscorer this season with 25 strikes in all competitions, with his England teammate Alli offering considerable backup with 19 goals.
Versatile attacker Son is arguably the club’s in-form attacker, at this moment in time, as he has scored five goals in his last five league matches.
The goalscoring trio have been backed up by playmaker Eriksen, who has controlled the game from the middle of the park, as he will be looking to surpass 20 assists for the campaign.
After this contest, the two teams will resume their Premier League title battle, with Chelsea hosting Southampton and Spurs travelling to Crystal Palace in midweek.
