Chelsea face London rivals Tottenham in the first of two FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley Stadium this weekend, and Blues manager Antonio Conte has some fantastic news for fans after a less than ideal build up.
The runaway Premier League leaders just a few weeks ago, Chelsea have seen their seemingly unstoppable march to the title come un-stuck in recent weeks after losses against Crystal Palace and Manchester United.
As well as Conte’s side stumbling, Mauricio Pochettino and his Spurs side have been in outstanding form, having blown away sides for fun to close the gap to just four points.
An unease build up to the semi-final for those at Stamford Bridge was made harder last week when ‘keeper Thibaut Courtois was injured in peculiar circumstances, playing basketball for an advert.
However, according to the London Evening Standard, Conte has confirmed that the Belgian shot-stopper is fit and ready to play at Wembley this weekend, having missed the loss at Old Trafford.
