Chelsea will play Tottenham Hotspur in the semifinals of the FA Cup, and Antonio Conte is already looking forward to the game.
Tottenham are the only team to have beaten Chelsea this year, and Conte is well aware of their threat.
He said: “It’s another tough game against a strong team. It’s one win for us and one win for them [so far this season], for sure it will be an exciting game for the people and our fans. In this phase, Tottenham, Arsenal or Man City, the level is very high. We have to accept this. They’ve shown they are able to beat us but we’ve shown we are able to beat them, now we’ll see what the result is in the semi-final.
“Now we have to rest tomorrow and think about the league. Stoke are playing very well, they are a strong team.”
Chelsea and Tottenham met in the semifinals of the FA Cup in 2012; a game Chelsea won 5-1 as the Blues went on to win the cup.
