Chelsea defender Gary Cahill treated for kidney stones

Chelsea ended Spurs' title hopes last season when they came back from 2-0 down to deny the visitors a win at Stamford Bridge in May.

The last time the London rivals faced off against each other was in the Premier League and the 21-year-old well and truly stole the show.

Gary Cahill was treated this week for gastroenteritis, Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte said on Friday.

"I think the right position for John when we play with three central defenders is in the central position where David Luiz is playing, " added Conte, who again praised Terry's influence.

"It is not a serious problem, but now Gary is getting better and improving a lot". Last season we finished with 70.

With both teams occupying the top two places in the Premier League standings, this semi-final has the billing of a thrilling cup tie, though our simulation match was fairly bland - on Federation Internationale de Football Association 17 anyway!

Team mate Eric Dier said that the club's dismal record at Wembley, where they played their home European matches earlier this season, will not affect their performance on Saturday.

"The most important thing is that Thibaut recovered from his injury and he trained with us this week", Conte confirmed in the press conference ahead of the game. "We have the facility to challenge and now it is up to us to try to step up and make this dream a reality".

The 36-year-old former England captain confirmed this week that he will leave the club at the end of the summer, having rarely featured under Antonio Conte.

"If we stay up why wouldn't we be interested?" asked Clement, whose team are two points from safety with five games left. "I am more mature and I am happy with this".

Manchester United lead all clubs with 25 PREMIER LEAGUE selections over the past 10 years, including goalkeeper David de Gea this season.

"Of course I'm happy, but the season is not over".

More confusing is the fact Sanchez has been nominated for the main Player of the Year award, but hasn't made the cut in the XI. Alli has a knack of scoring in big games and with the likely absence of Son Heung-Min it will be down to him and Harry Kane to take up the primary goal scoring roles.
