By on April 15, 2012

London rivals Chelsea and Tottenham face off in the second FA Cup semi final at Wembley, with Liverpool awaiting the victors after a 2-1 win over Everton on Saturday.

Chelsea are hot on the heels of fourth-placed Spurs as the pair fight-it-out to secure a top-four place, but they will put aside their league rivalry in search of domestic silverware.

Roberto Di Matteo has decided to go with Dider Drogba up front today, with Fernando Torres on the bench. John Terry and Ashley Cole both start after being doubts before the game.

Harry Redknapp has been boosted by the return of Ledley King, who starts alongside William Gallas at the back.

Chelsea Team

Cech, Bosingwa, Luiz, Terry, Cole, Mikel, Lampard, Ramires, Mata, Kalou, Drogba

SUBS: Turnbull, Cahill, Essien, Meireles, Malouda, Sturridge, Torres.
