Spurs bar Conte's way to FA Cup final



Antonio Conte's hopes of a domestic double in his first season as Chelsea manager faces a formidable obstacle in the shape of Tottenham Hotspur in their FA Cup semifinal after the draw was made on Monday.

Conte -- who has transformed Chelsea from the mid-table side they were last term to runaway Premier League leaders this campaign -- will be heartened by the fact Spurs' record at Wembley is woeful.

Mauricio Pochettino's side won just one of four European 'home' games played there this season.

The other semifinal pitches Arsene Wenger's Arsenal against Manchester City, managed by Pep Guardiola.

The Gunners boss is hoping the Cup can provide some salvation in what has been a disappointing season.

SEMIFINALS FIXTURES

Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur

Arsenal v Manchester City

To be played weekend of April 22/23.
