Bale confident of ending Chelsea's cup run

Gareth Bale insists Tottenham will overcome Chelsea in this weekend's FA Cup semi-final because they have a better team.

Tottenham's Barclays Premier League form sunk to an alarming new low on Monday when they suffered a 2-1 defeat to Norwich.

The Canaries played brilliantly at White Hart Lane but the way in which Spurs ran out of answers going forward, and the way they looked creaky at the back, raised serious questions about their chances of qualifying for next year's Champions League.

The Londoners have now one just once in their last eight league games and face the big task of beating Chelsea on Sunday to reach next month's FA Cup final. Spurs have not won the FA Cup in 21 years but lead the Blues by two points and edged a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge last month - something which Bale reckons shows the north London club will vanquish their neighbours at Wembley this weekend.

The Welshman told Spurs TV Online: "Obviously we've got difficult opposition in Chelsea. They're a great side, have done really well in the Champions League and it won't be easy. But I think if we are on our game on the day, then we can reach the final because I feel we have the better team.

"We played very well at Stamford Bridge recently, it ended goalless but we had the better chances on the day and we probably should have won the game. That will give us plenty of confidence going into this match."
