Chelsea vs Spurs: FA Cup tie will define EPL title race

The results of Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final match between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur will have a big bearing on the Premier League title race.
Whoever wins on Saturday FA Cup clash will have plenty of confidence going into the last stretch of the title race. I think Chelsea will bounce back strongly and win this one after going down 2-0 to Manchester United last weekend.
Furthermore, they have already beaten Spurs in the League Cup final and have what it takes to win this one as well. I also believe that both teams will score goals in what is a very close contest.
The battle will certain be between Diego Costa and Harry Kane. Both players have had an incredible season scoring important goals for their clubs. Costa has scored 17 goals with an Outright Top goal scorer market on www.dafabet.co.ke giving him odds of 23.00. He has had 38 shots on target proving why he is dangerous in front of goal.
Harry Kane, who has scored 20 goals has an Outright Top goal scorer market on www.dafabet.co.ke giving him odds of 6.75 for the Spurs point man. Spurs have been clinical in the last four matches scoring 13 goals in the process. They thrashed Bournemouth and Watford 4-0 each while Swansea fell 3-1. Last weekend they beat Burnley 2-0 and the Blues will find hard to stop them.
Away from the FA Cup, Liverpool will be keen to ensure a top four finish when they host Crystal Palace on Saturday. I predict a Palace win considering that the team has done well against top sides.
Last weekend they drew 2-2 with champions Leicester City after thrashing Arsenal 3-0 and winning 2-1 against Chelsea. It will be very difficult to stop them especially as they are not yet safe from relegation.
The Reds will be keen to pick all three points in this match. The Reds edged out West Bromwich Albion 1-0 last weekend perhaps enough motivation to beat Crystal Palace. However, if Crystal Palace Surprise Liverpool as they did Arsenal their Odds stand at 6.55 on www.dafabet.co.ke which is very high for a team that has Benteke leading the frontline.
