The Blues have lead the way in the Premier League for much of this season but seem to be stuttering at the final hurdle with some disappointing recent performances and results.

Speaking about Tottenham’s chances against the league leaders, the former Newcastle striker said he believed Spurs could beat them without resorting to defensive and nullifying tactics such as those used by Mourinho.
‘I thought Manchester United did an excellent job of marking Chelsea’s big hitters out of the game last weekend,’ Shearer wrote in his column for Coral .
‘Tottenham beat them earlier in the season at White Hart Lane by out-playing them, United, on the other hand, did it by nullifying their best opponents. Tottenham will feel they have individuals who can out-perform Chelsea at Wembley.

‘It is such a tight game to call because there are a number of match winners in both teams. When you look at the amount of goals in that Tottenham side, you have (Harr) Kane, Son (Heung-min), (Dele) Alli and (Christian) Eriksen.
‘Chelsea also have (Diego) Costa, (Eden) Hazard, Pedro, William and (Cesc) Fabregas so it sets us up for what should be an absolutely cracking game and one that I am really looking forward to.’
