Danny Rose 'set to miss Tottenham's FA Cup semi-final vs. Chelsea'

Premier League Tottenham Hotspur pummel Bournemouth 4-0 Manchester City climb to third spot with 3-0 win over Southampton

"We have to think that there are six finals from now until the end of the season".

Tottenham are arguably playing the most aesthetically pleasing football this term and this is shown in an impressive goal difference of +46 compared to leaders Chelsea's +38. If you can get it to three points or below - where every single game is going to make a difference - that's when you can see real pressure get put on Chelsea.

United desperately needed to win to keep their top 4 hopes alive, while Chelsea really needed to avoid defeat in order to keep Spurs at bay. "We are an experienced group of players who have been there and done this before", Begovic told the club's website.

After the FA Cup semi-final, Spurs will shift focus to the league, where they trail Chelsea by four points, ahead of a trip across London to Crystal Palace on April 26.

"At the end of the season when everyone is exhausted we need everyone to have the right mental attitude and happiness helps".

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool remain third after narrowly defeating West Brom 1-0 at the Hawthorns, and the Reds remain two points clear of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City after they impressively saw off Southampton 3-0 at St Mary's. "There will be more pressure on them, the closer they get to Chelsea also".

With Chelsea's form apparently wavering, Kane knows victory at the national stadium for Spurs would have the added benefit of sowing further seeds of doubt in the title race.

I genuinely thought that Pochettino and his young team would struggle this season after dropping the ball so badly last time out.

The Italian has used Batshuayi sparingly, although the FA Cup is one competition where he has had chances, scoring two goals in four matches.

"We have to dust ourselves off and prepare for a huge semi-final, and then we go again with some important home games coming up". It was the first time they have failed to register one in a Premier League match since September 2007.
