Toby Alderweireld backs Tottenham to use Chelsea display to boost title hopes

Despite losing the crucial semi-final game, second placed Tottenham seek to overtake the leaders in the Premier League table, with six games remaining for both the sides to play.

Diego Costa. Chelsea's leading scorer has been struggling for goals of late and was dropped for the FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham.

They rode their luck at times but showed a decisive killer instinct while their London rivals came up short in crunch time. But, that's exactly what the Chelsea midfielder did. Whoever comes into their squad is a great player and we were just focused on us.

It was a huge win for Chelsea who have wobbled lately with two league defeats and they will face either Arsenal or Manchester City in the final when a "double" could be on offer.

"I saw the game they lost against Manchester United and now they are a little bit under pressure, and we also want to continue getting good results".

"It's encouraging but obviously they've beaten us twice, we beat them once this season so that's what's disappointing", Kane said. Now we have to find the right substitutes for these players and then work to put these players at the same level. Tottenham have one more day to rest.

The former Juventus and Italy coach took over a side which had endured a miserable season, surrendering their title so meekly that boss Jose Mourinho left the club midway through the campaign amid talk of player unrest.

"I am happy for my goal, it was a great goal, but it's not the best I've ever scored".

Spurs will have little time to dwell on their disappointment with three London derbies in the space of 10 days on the horizon as Mauricio Pochettino's side attempt to maintain their slender Premier League title hopes. "It's not easy to decide to start the game without two important players, Hazard and Diego, but I think you must take this responsibility and you must involve your players in your plan and then take this risk", the Italian tactician remarked.

"They are human. The only thing we can do it keep working hard and keep believing and play in the same way that we've played in the last few weeks". "The only way we can do that is starting with a win on Wednesday".

"I'm not sure but from the beginning we ran after the game, we ran after the score", Lloris said.

"It's my fifth season for Tottenham and I can see the team is enjoying to fight and to compete against the best teams".
