Chelsea and Tottenham will be in for a showdown in the FA Cup semifinals on Saturday at the Wembley Stadium, and Chelsea defender David Luiz has revealed that Tottenham are the most physical team in the league – a character the Brazilian admits he loves.

“For me they are an amazing team with an amazing coach in Maurico Pochettino,” Luiz told Standard Sport.

“They are the best physical team in the League. All 11 players are monsters. I love that team.

“It will be a difficult game for us. We need to be ready to play against one of the best sides in this League. But it was always going to be hard when you reach a semi-final.”

Luiz then admitted that Chelsea will have to be monsters to defeat Spurs on Saturday.

Luiz, 29, added: “Will we have to be monsters too? Yes.

“Chelsea also have some monsters and play like a monster like N’Golo Kante. We have different kind of monsters.

“It will be a fantastic game, both clubs are in amazing shape. It will be a top-quality match to watch and you have to play top quality to win.”
