Hazard issues reminder to fans ahead of Tottenham's FA Cup clash
By Amir Mir
Micky Hazard has reminded Tottenham and Chelsea fans of the “massive” opportunity their teams have to reach the FA Cup final this weekend.
The London duo will meet at Wembley on Saturday evening for a crucial semi-final showdown which could also determine who wins the Premier League title.
Antonio Conte’s side lead second-placed Spurs by four points, but that gap has been reduced from ten to four during this past month.
Defeats against Crystal Palace and away at Manchester United last Sunday have resulted in that gap narrowing as another defeat could further derail the Stamford Bridge club.
Added with Chelsea’s defeats, Spurs have won seven league matches on the bounce, including winning their last two matches 4-0 on home soil.

The duo will now meet in the capital at the weekend and former Tottenham man Hazard had this simple message ahead of the mouth-watering tie.
“Massive game,” Hazard wrote on his personal Twitter account. “[The] chance to be in an FA Cup final. Wow.”

Both teams have met each other on two occasions this term with the duo picking up one win each in front of their own supporters.
The most recent match between the title-chasing duo came in January when Pochettino’s side outclassed their opponents by beating them 2-0.
Attacking midfielder Dele Alli, who has scored 19 goals in all competitions during this campaign, netted a brace on that day.
The highly-rated England international will be looking to be a thorn in Chelsea’s side once again as he has the opportunity of reaching 20 goals for the campaign.
