Our football match prediction:
Chelsea are leading the chase for the Premier League trophy and thanks to a hard-fought win over Manchester United they set up a meeting with Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup semis. Antonio Conte wants to win everything with the Blues and the Italian tactician is likely to field the best possible side against Mauro Pochettino’s troops in Saturday’s football match. Chelsea head into the game following a 2-0 loss to Man Utd and, no doubt, a win over Tottenham would help them regain a much-needed confidence. Spurs, on the other hand, did well to melt Chelsea’s advantage to four points at the weekend, with the team rolling over Bournemouth (4-0) in front of home fans. Tottenham are determined to win the Premier League trophy and we would not be surprised if they suffer elimination in the FA Cup semis. Harry Kane has recently overcome his injury and we predict that he will be rested against Chelsea.
Highlighted Player (Thibaut Courtois):
Born on 11 May 1992, Thibaut Courtois is a very talented Belgian goalkeeper who plays for Chelsea. Courtois began his senior football career at Genk, but after spending two seasons at Cristal Arena, he joined Chelsea in 2011. The club chiefs decided to send him on loan to Atletico Madrid, but seeing that Courtois impressed during his spell with the La Liga team, Jose Mourinho confirmed in June, 2014 that the Belgian goalkeeper would return to Chelsea for the 2014/2015 campaign. Thibaut Courtois helped Chelsea win the Premier League trophy in 2015, but the general impression is that he had performed much better while at Atletico Madrid. He won the La Liga title in the 2013/2014 season, while lifting the UEFA Europa League trophy in 2012. Two years later Courtois participated in the Champions League final, but Real Madrid proved to be a big catch for Atletico Madrid. Speaking of his individual awards, Thibaut Courtois was named the La Liga Goalkeeper of the Year (2013).

Tottenham Hotspur are a professional football club based in North London. Spurs host their rivals at White Hart Lane and the capacity of the stadium is 36,284. Tottenham won the Premier League (First Division) trophy in 1950/1951 and 1960/1961 and despite producing terrific displays in the 2015/2016 campaign Mauro Pochettino’s team eventually finished the season in third place in the standings. Tottenham’s bitter rivals are Arsenal, but Chelsea and West Ham United are regarded as the team’s fierce opponents as well. Spurs have won eight FA Cup trophies, with the team also lifting the 1962/1963 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup title. Tottenham Hotspur hammered Atletico Madrid in the final of the competition back then (5-1).
