Chelsea prepare for huge Wembley clash

20/04/2017

Chelsea take on Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley this Saturday in the semi-final of the FA Cup.

The Blues haven't played a match at Wembley since 2015, when they faced Arsenal in the Community Shield.

That wasn't the only Wembley match Chelsea played that year, however: the Blues also played Tottenham in the 2015 League Cup final, winning 2-0 thanks to goals from John Terry and Diego Costa.

The last time the two sides played each other in the FA Cup was also at the semi-final stage in 2012.

In that Wembley match, Chelsea dominated their North London opponents, scoring five goals and only conceding one. There were five different Chelsea scorers that day: Didier Drogba, Juan Mata, Ramires, Frank Lampard and Florent Malouda all found the net.

Chelsea fans will be hoping for a repeat of that famous win, which took the Blues to the final. In fact, 2012 was the last year that Chelsea won the competition.

In the five years leading up to the 2012 final, Chelsea won the trophy three times taking their tally up to seven.

Spurs have won it eight times overall, putting them third in the all-time list. If the Blues were to lift the trophy this season, though, they would jump above the North London side.

This season, both teams have been in fantastic form.

Chelsea currently sit top of the Premier League table on 75 points, four points above second-placed Tottenham. Spurs have won their last six games, while the Blues have won six of their last nine.

It's been very even between the two sides when they've played each other, with both using their home advantage to the full this season: Chelsea won 2-1 at Stamford Bridge, while Tottenham beat the Blues 2-0 at White Hart Lane.

It's tough to choose the winner between Chelsea and Tottenham, but Blues fans will be hoping that their team show the same creativity and strength that took them to the final in 2012.

The match kicks off at 5:15pm on Saturday. Check out BridgeKids soon after for a full match report!
