Conte urges 'great power' Tottenham to stop being so Spursy

Asmir Begovic was given his first Premier League start of the season in Sunday's 2-0 defeat at Manchester United after Courtois suffered the injury during a promotional event, involving basketball, for Chelsea's preseason tour of China.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has made bold claims about the club, stating that Spurs are at the same level as Liverpool and Manchester United, while being above the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal in terms of popularity.

"Ake thinks he deserves to have this chance, to play", Conte said.

Tottenham have won every game they have played so far in April, scoring a 13 goals while conceding just two.

SPURS fans heading to Wembley for the FA Cup semi-final today (Saturday) are planning to applaud throughout the 44th minute of the match as a tribute to Ugo Ehiogu, the club coach who died after suffering a heart attack in training.

The Belgian broke Tottenham's hearts last season with the goal that handed Leicester the title and fired a low strike through a crowd from the edge of the box.

"Since I came here, I've reached the semi final but I've never had the opportunity to play the final, and so I am hoping this can be my first year to make it to the final and, why not, to win the contest". Gary Cahill is unfit for the clash after a kidney stone treatment. Harry Kane got the best of him for a truly brilliant equalizing goal but he would by no means be alone there such was the class and ingenuity of the England striker's tremendously deft headed finish.

Antonio Conte says he understands and respects John Terry's decision to leave Chelsea but insists the defender will be a "serious loss" to the club.

"It is very hard for me to understand this dynamic because in this part of the season you must try to have balance, to understand the situation, and to try to put both teams in the same condition to fight and then to do their best".

Chelsea also has some monsters, some ugly guys like a monster.

"At Spurs, you always like a manager and a player who lifts the trophies". "I've been here three years now and remember the challenge back then was first to reduce the gap to the top four". Yes, I think so.

"He is a great captain, the problem is that John wants to play regularly and for this reason we have to respect his decision". I understand, it's all about results.

Marcos Alonso, meanwhile, withdrew during the warm-up at Old Trafford due to a stomach bug, which was unrelated to Cahill's illness. "They are a great team, they are showing for the second year to fight for the title".

Conte added: "If you compare my situation with Ancelotti's situation it is totally different. I think in the past, in that moment, that was the foundation".
