Toby Alderweireld has described today's FA Cup semi-final as a 'wonderful opportunity'.

We take on Premier League leaders Chelsea at Wembley Stadium connected by EE, kicking-off at 5.15pm.

Chelsea have been top of the pile for a long time, but we've managed to cut their lead down to four points with a Club record sequence of seven wins on the trot in the Premier League.

Now we meet on football's biggest stage, with a place in the FA Cup Final at stake.

 


"It’s a dream come true to play in these circumstances and have the chance to go through to the FA Cup Final, and that’s why we have to work so hard and give everything we can to reach the final. We’re confident we can beat Chelsea.

"We’re in a good moment, our form is good, everyone is buzzing to play the sem-final and we’ll give 100 per cent to go through to the final."

There has been a lot of talk about what this huge tie could mean not just in terms of the FA Cup, but in the bigger picture of the Premier League.

Toby, outstanding again in defence this term, isn't listening to that noise. "We just have to concentrate on our own performance, our own game, our own intensity. It’s all about us," he added.

"If we play how we’ve played in the last couple of weeks we have a good chance to win. That’s why I think we have to believe in our own performance, our quality and then we can beat them."
