Hazard delivers verdict ahead of Tottenham v Chelsea showdown
By Dominic Toner
Micky Hazard believes that the best two teams in the Premier League will meet on Saturday as Tottenham play Chelsea in the cup.
Spurs face the Blues at Wembley in the FA Cup semi-finals and will be looking to book their place in the final, where they will play the winners of Manchester City against Arsenal.
The two London rivals are at the top of the league table and are battling out for the league table, with Chelsea four points clear at the summit.
Meanwhile, Liverpool, Manchester City, United, Arsenal and Everton are competing for a top-four spot.
Hazard feels that the league’s best team will clash at the weekend and is expecting a great contest.

Spurs and Chelsea appear to be evenly matched, with each side picking up a victory from their previous meeting this season.
Antonio Conte’s side won the first meeting 2-1 at Stamford Bridge, but Spurs returned the favour with a 2-0 win at White Hart Lane.
Hazard has described the pair as the league’s best and the use of the 3-4-3 formation has certainly aided both.
