In a few hours’ time, we’d all be glued to the game between Chelsea and strong rivals Tottenham in the FA Cup semifinal.

Michael Owen has predicted that there won’t be any love lost between both sides, while also revealing that there could be a red card in this fixture. The former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Newcastle striker expects a tough game with Chelsea to carry the day.

The ex-Liverpool and Manchester United striker told BetVictor: “I still can’t get over the corresponding fixture at Stamford Bridge 12 months ago when both sides attempted to kick lumps out of each other in a 2-2 draw that saw Leicester crowned champions.

“Chelsea are the 15/8 favourites with BetVictor for the FA Cup and are, in my opinion, worthy favourites with the Blues 8/11 favourites to make next month’s final, with the winner likely to come from this semi-final.

“The cup-tie could go either way with Spurs arriving in sensational form in the top-flight, but with a terrible record at this stage of the competition having lost their last 6 successive FA Cup semi-finals.

“I expect to see fireworks at Wembley on Saturday, and not necessarily good ones, with no love lost between both sides and the 3/1 for someone to be issued with their marching orders is too big with BetVictor.”
