Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur has been one of the most consistent sides in the Premier League this season.
They are just four points away from leaders Chelsea at the moment and are sure to play in the Champions League next season.
They have also stepped into the semi-final of the FA cup this season and they will play Chelsea this Saturday in the competition.
This battle between two London clubs is expected to be high octane and the Spurs manager has taken the initiative to let the sparks fly.
Speaking to the media before the game Pochettino took a dig at the blues and said that his side is better built than the one from the Stamford Bridge.
He felt that it was important to have homegrown players at the club and that always good to rely on big money signings like Chelsea do.
“Our answer has been fantastic,” he said.
“If you analyse where we came from, it’s a fantastic time for Tottenham. And how you build your project is important to analyse.”
He went on to say that the Spurs have a model that will come good in years to come and praised felt that that natural progress at the club is healthy and good for all involved.
“Tottenham is not building now in an artificial way. It is not about putting in money, money, money, money and building a fantastic stadium and fantastic team.
“Tottenham is very genuine. It is a very natural process and it is so exciting because it is unique in the world.”
This is not a new war as Pochettino’s side narrowly missed out on the Premier League title last season with a loss against Chelsea late in the campaign.
However, Tottenham Hotspur have been able to maintain their consistency this season and having spent almost one-third of what Chelsea have in the summer, this time as the biggest threat to the title for the blues this season.
Both teams will want to take home the FA cup and will go all out on Saturday and if the Spurs are able to get the better of Conte’s men, it will make for a good battle in the next season.
Chelsea are favourites to win the title while the FA Cup could be Pochettino’s first silverware in his time at the White Hart Lane. Who do you think will win the FA cup semi final this Saturday?
