Newly appointed Birmingham City boss, and former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp explained the tactic he would use if he was still in charge of Tottenham, for their upcoming FA Cup semi final clash with Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday, when writing his regular column for the Evening Standard.

The game between the Premier League's top two sides seems to be too close to call, but Mauricio Pochettino's men certainly head into the match in better spirits, after winning seven consecutive league games, whilst Antonio Conte's side have lost two of their last four.

The game at Wembley is sure to be quite the spectacle, with a plethora of world class match winners set to be on display, and Redknapp highlighted one Chelsea player in particular who Tottenham need to be wary of, when writing his regular column for the Evening Standard:

"The key is keeping Eden Hazard under wraps like United did. Spurs have the option of man-marking him like Ander Herrera did or they could match up with three at the back as earlier in the season — I’d look to do that if I was in charge."

Both teams will be desperate to win on Saturday, as they look to seize some kind of psychological edge in the race for the Premier League title.

Nobody would be surprised to see the victors of this weekend's clash go on to achieve success in the league.

And with the way Spurs have been playing of late, they have every reason to believe that this season could be their year.
