Chelsea star Luiz gushes about Spurs ahead of FA Cup semi final

He loves them

David Luiz has heaped praise on Tottenham Hotspur ahead of their FA Cup semi final showdown with Chelsea.

The Blues are also in a title fight with their London rivals, who have changed beyond all recognition under current manager Maurico Pochettino, something Luiz has spoken extensively about.

He said: “For me they are an amazing team with an amazing coach in Maurico Pochettino.

“They are the best physical team in the League. All 11 players are monsters. I love that team.

“It will be a difficult game for us. We need to be ready to play against one of the best sides in this League. But it was always going to be hard when you reach a semi-final.”


A  huge game

The game against Spurs is of course massive for Chelsea – but from a Tottenham point of view, it’s also a huge chance for them to get to a major final, and go one step closer to winning their first major trophy of the Poch era.

It’s something the players have spoken about, with Harry Kane often mentioning that the side are good, but need to start winning trophies and really put their money where their mouth is.
