Tottenham face Chelsea in the first FA Cup semi-final of the weekend at Wembley on Saturday, and Mauricio Pochettino has a key decision to make when it comes to his team selection.

One decision has already been made for him. Michel Vorm still hasn’t recovered from the knee injury he suffered in the 3-1 win at Swansea earlier this month, so Hugo Lloris will start and captain the team.

Vorm has started in each of Spurs’ four FA Cup matches so far this season, keeping three clean sheets along the way. Still, Tottenham fans will feel a lot more confident with Lloris between the sticks.

Elsewhere, Pochettino must decide whether to stick with the eleven that so impressively beat Bournemouth 4-0 at White Hart Lane last weekend, which would mean Heung-Min Son starting in an attacking midfield trio behind Harry Kane.

The alternative is Son dropping to bench and Victor Wanyama returning to the side in a 3-4-2-1 formation that would see Eric Dier drop into a back three.

We think Pochettino will reintroduce Wanyama in a similar set-up to the one that beat Chelsea 2-0 at the Lane last month. What do you think?

Spurs XI v Chelsea



  1. I think Poch has to find a place for Son – he’s our speediest forward and Chelsea’s back 3 are vulnerable to pace, as Marcus Rashford showed.
