Chelsea FC and Tottenham Hotspur, the top two teams in the Premier League and the only two with a realistic shot at the title, battle on Saturday for a shot at another storied championship in an FA Cup semifinal match that will live stream from Wembley Stadium — a game that not only carries with it a berth in the May 27 FA Cup Final, but will also serve as a powerful message as the two venerable clubs grapple in pursuit of a coveted league title.
In the Premier League, with each team playing only six more games, Chelsea sits atop the table, only four points in front of Manager Mauricio Pochettino’s dogged Spurs side, who have so far refused to give up in their long-shot quest for only their third English League title — and first since 1961.
The Spurs, on the other hand, have won the FA Cup eight times in nine Final appearances, but have not taken home the trophy since 1991. Chelsea has been to the FA Cup Final on 11 occasions, taking home the trophy on seven of those, last winning in 2012.
