Arsenal face City, Spurs bar Blues way to Cup final
Antonio Conte’s hopes of a domestic double in his first season as Chelsea manager faces a formidable obstacle in the shape of Tottenham Hotspur in their FA Cup semi-final after the draw was made on Monday.
Conte — who has transformed Chelsea from the mid-table side they were last term to runaway Premier League leaders this campaign — will be heartened by the fact Spurs’ record at Wembley is woeful.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side won just one of four European ‘home’ games played there this season.
The other semi-final pitches Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal against Manchester City, managed by Pep Guardiola.
The Gunners boss is hoping the Cup can provide some salvation in what has been a disappointing season.
Semi final draw
Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur
Arsenal v Manchester City
To be played weekend of April 22/23
