Chelsea vs Tottenham is the biggest FA Cup match in years – everyone wants to see them go head-to-head, says Jermaine Jenas

With only four points separating them, the Premier League top two sides face off at Wembley on Saturday in an FA Cup semi-final.

Both Chelsea and Tottenham have tasted victory against one another this season: a 2-1 win for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge before Tottenham’s 2-0 triumph at White Hart Lane.

But having appeared to be running away with the title just one month ago, Tottenham have capitalised on a recent stumble by the Blues to close their once ten-point gap down to four, and former Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas says Saturday’s Cup clash is a mouth-watering contest for the neutrals.

"From a neutral point of view, this is the game everyone wants to see right now with the two top teams in the Premier League going at it," Jenas told the BBC.

"I don't think there has been a bigger game in the FA Cup for a few years now.

"Everyone was expecting Chelsea to run away and win the league - now we get the opportunity to see them go head to head to get to the final."
