Wounded or subdued: which Chelsea will show up against Spurs
FA Cup By: Okanga Okanga | 21/04/2017
The Blues have been beset by unfamiliar challenges this week in the run up to a crucial FA Cup semi-final slug-out with fellow title contenders Tottenham Hotspur, in a period that is setting up to be the most daunting test of West London side's mentality. Exactly how strong is that mentality?Barely a few weeks ago the Blues looked on top of the world; heads and shoulders above the rest of English football, 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League table and looking forward to a spicy FA Cup semifinal tussle with second placed Tottenham Hotspurs. That much-hyped tussle indeed arrives as the sun rises above the width of Wembley. On the west side of London a cloud of perplexity over the events of the last week or so. Chelsea are no longer in the best of moods, it seems. Two losses in four league matches and they are now a paltry 4 points away from the day's opponents, and with a whopping 6 games yet to play. Chelsea found themselves deflated and dragged through the dirt in their forgettable defeat at Man United last time out. It was their worst performance since losing to Arsenal in September. Not a single shot on target??? Yeah, how many times has that been said already? Not enough! READ ALSO: What does Marcos Alonso offer Chelsea?
