Micky Hazard has labelled Tottenham’s upcoming clash against Chelsea as a “massive game” after they were drawn against each other in the FA Cup.
The two London clubs will renew their rivalry at Wembley in the FA Cup semi-finals and will play the winner of Manchester City and Arsenal in the final.
Mauricio Pochettino is still chasing his first piece of silverware at the north London club and will have to get past Premier League leaders Chelsea if he wants to make a cup final.
Former Spurs player Hazard has delivered his brief verdict on the clash against the Blues and revealed his excitement.

Spurs managed to comfortably book their place in the last four of the prestigious competition by dispatching League One side Millwall 6-0, with Heung Min-Son scoring a hat-trick.
However, their progress came at a cost as star man Harry Kane went off injured with an ankle injury and they are still waiting to hear back the extent of the blow.
Meanwhile, Chelsea edged out Manchester United on Monday night with a 1-0 victory at Stamford Bridge to progress to the semi-finals.
N’Golo Kante scored a rare goal to settle the tie and Ander Herrera was red carded in the first-half to swing the match in the Blues’ favour.
Spurs and Chelsea is set to be a huge clash and the pair have played two fiery matches already this season.
Antonio Conte’s side edged the first meeting 2-1 at Stamford Bridge, but Spurs got their revenge with a 2-0 win in January thanks to a Dele Alli brace.
In other Tottenham news, the club’s 21-year-old has continued to impress during his loan spell at Stevenage.
