Ian Wright has sent a good luck message to Tottenham ahead of their crunch clash with Chelsea in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Spurs head into the game in fine form after having closed the gap to the leaders down to just four points with their 4-0 win over Bournemouth at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are aiming to get back to winning ways after the disappointment of their 2-0 loss to Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The two London sides will now do battle at Wembley on Saturday evening for a place in the FA Cup final against either Arsenal or Manchester City.

And Arsenal legend Wright had a blunt response when asked if he had a message for Spurs ahead of their crunch clash.

Asked to send a message to the Lilywhites, Wright told BBC Sport’s 606 podcast: “I’d say really good luck to Spurs!”
