Graeme Le Saux believes Chelsea don’t have any weaknesses under Antonio Conte ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final clash against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Premier League leaders are sitting four points clear at the top of the table ahead of Tottenham after Chelsea lost 2-0 to bitter rivals Manchester United last weekend.

The west London side will look to make a swift return to winning ways in the FA Cup despite coming up against their closest title rivals Tottenham at Wembley.

Chelsea have been impressive under Conte and the Chelsea boss has stuck with his 3-4-3 formation which transformed the west London side into title favourites.

The Blues lost 2-0 to Spurs in their most-recent meeting at White Hart Lane in January thanks to Dele Alli’s goals either side of half-time, although Chelsea won 2-1 against Mauricio Pochettino’s men earlier this season.

Former Chelsea defender Le Saux heaped praise on the Premier League leaders, hailing the lack of weaknesses in the Blues team.

“Chelsea are just as good in their own way though. They have no weak links in their team overall, and if we put to one side the Man United defeat last week they’ve also been fantastic,” Le Saux told Betfair blog.

“I actually think they’ll welcome the chance to get a week off from the Premier League after that Old Trafford disappointment and play at Wembley in a big semi. Whatever happens here doesn’t affect the league and they can play this on its own terms as a standalone game.”
