Chelsea, Tottenham dominate PFA Premier League Team of the Year

"To play under our philosophy, to learn, grow up, we're in a different process, a different moment to Chelsea".

Asmir Begovic was given his first Premier League start of the season in Sunday's 2-0 defeat at Manchester United after Courtois suffered the injury during a promotional event, involving basketball, for Chelsea's preseason tour of China.

"It's a massive game anyway but it goes above that because of the statement it could send out if Tottenham win and the effect it could have on Chelsea", Hazard, 57, said. But it's not an easy task.

Mauricio Pochettino has claimed Tottenham Hotspur are the most popular club in London at the moment and the Argentine is keen to continue at White Hart Lane for as long as possible.

"I remember three years ago when we signed here I remember the first few press conferences and I was asked how we can reduce the gap to the top four", Pochettino said. It will be a top-quality match to watch and you have to play top quality to win'. Last season they missed this, and this season they're trying again. We are going well and we will try to get to the final.

"We create our own expectation".

It proved to be a chastening experience for Tottenham as they were crushed 5-1 with the aid of a disputed second goal scored by Juan Mata. Then the opposition score and everything gets jittery and you end up drawing or losing.

Tottenham used the national stadium for their Champions League and Europa League home fixtures this season, but won just once in four games as they crashed out of both competitions.

"We should be preparing in the same way, doing the same things".

"We are showing we have learned from last season".

Hazard, an influential part of the last Tottenham squad to regularly win silverware in the 1980s believes there is now no better team in England than Spurs but says getting over the line is crucial for them to take the next step.

"It's great to play in those kind of games, semi-finals and finals".

"It's with overwhelming emotion that earlier this week the club and I announced this will be my last season as a Chelsea player", he said. We have improved, that is the reality. "We are happy to fight with the best team in England for the Premier League and (FA) Cup".

"We have great momentum and that is the most important because that can change very quickly". "Now is the moment, like last season, to show and to translate that feeling and the stats into reality". "The FA Cup is a very important game". Well, then perhaps Blues supporters would argue for the inclusion of Cesar Azpilicueta or Marcos Alonso at fullback instead of one of the Tottenham pair.
