Chelsea won Tottenham 4-2 in the semi-final match played at Wembley on Saturday to secure a place in the final of the FA Cup.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has praised Chelsea’s strength in depth.

Eden Hazard and Diego Costa were both named on the substitute’s bench during the win against Tottenham.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte brought on Hazard, Costa and Fabregas in the second half and his substitution proved decisive as Hazard scored Chelsea’s third goal.

“I explained before (the game) that you never know the reason why the manager makes the decision,” Pochettino said of Conte’s decision to leave out Hazard and Costa.

“You will see that Hazard made an impact and to have another player like Costa on the bench can provide you with different alternatives.

“The three changes they made – Fabregas, Hazard and Costa – it’s not so bad.”
