More at stake than just cup final place for Chelsea, Spurs
Apr 21 2017 by Joanne Wise
In the space of a few weeks Tottenham have whittled long-time league leaders Chelsea's advantage down from 13 to four points thanks to their own dazzling form and defeats by Crystal Palace and Manchester United for Antonio Conte's side.
Former Espanyol and Southampton manager Pochettino, in his third season in north London, is yet to win any silverware with Tottenham but if trophies were awarded for progress the Argentine would be ahead of his rivals.
Wright-Phillips, who won one Premier League title in three years at Stamford Bridge, believes the pressure could get to Antonio Conte's players.
"We saw just how much Chelsea missed him against Manchester United".
Without Cahill, that defense will be tested against an excellent Tottenham side that is not only vying for an FA Cup triumph but is also just four points behind the Blues in the Premier League title race.
Two years before that, Portsmouth beat them 2-0 after extra time at the same stage of the competition and at the same stadium. We are talking about the team that, in the last five years, have won European competitions, World Cups, and a manager who won the title in Italy. "I am repeating in every press conference that John, in my first season, is very important, he's helping me on the pitch and off the pitch", he said.
As for Arsene Wenger, this could be his last season in charge of Arsenal, with his contract up in June. 'When we started to have the training on Tuesday, Gary arrived at training with a fever, then we prefer to bring him into hospital to check his situation.

Real to take on Atletico in Champions League semi-final
Monaco last met Juve in the quarter-finals of the 2014-15 season, where the Turin side ran out 1-0 aggregate winners. Beaten Barcelona defender Gerard Pique concurred, tipping Juventus to lift the trophy they last won in 1996.
"The system is very good because we have the players to fit in their positions".
"With six games to go we have 71 points".
Even in the midst of their current wobble, Chelsea are big favourites to win the Premier League.
Conte said: 'I think Tottenham is a really great power in English football. "We have the facility to challenge and now it is up to us to try to step up and make this dream a reality".
But taking centre stage is an FA Cup semi final lineup featuring four of the Premier League's other big hitters at Wembley.
"When John plays it is more central, but that is David Luiz".
Of the semi-final, Pochettino said: "If there's a favourite, it's Chelsea".
