Ian Wright has claimed that Tottenham will head into their FA Cup semi-final showdown with Chelsea as the favourites to win the game.

Tottenham have been in superb form in recent weeks and managed to close the gap to Chelsea down to four points in the Premier League table last weekend.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men have won their last two games by a four-goal margin to pile the pressure on Antonio Conte’s league leaders.

Chelsea, meanwhile, head into Saturday’s game looking to bounce back from the disappointment of their 2-0 loss to Manchester United in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

And Arsenal legend Wright believes that Tottenham head into Saturday evening’s showdown at Wembley as the slight favourites to claim victory.

Speaking on BBC Sport’s 606 podcast, Wright said: “As we’re sitting here now, Tottenham are favourites for that game.”
