Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur will be up for a difficult battle in the FA Cup semifinal clash at Wembley Stadium this evening.
Arsenal legend Paul Merson has backed Chelsea to win the game and has also tipped Diego Costa to be the match winner, despite having not scored in the last five games.
“Diego Costa is miles behind Harry Kane in the race for the Golden Boot but he could be the match-winner for Chelsea at Wembley,” Merson wrote in the Daily Star.
“He’s not in great form but I think he’ll get more chances in today’s semi-final than Kane – and I think he’ll get more change out of that Tottenham defence.
“Spurs are flying and they’re killing teams off but they haven’t played anybody decent in their recent unbeaten run, which has been going since defeat at Liverpool in February.
“I think they could be in for a fall against Chelsea. Spurs beat the Blues at home in January and gave them the runaround for a while at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season before getting steamrollered.”
