FORMER Spurs amd Chelsea hero Glen Hoddle is tipping his two old clubs to reach the final of the FA Cup.

Hoddle, however, says he isn't comfortable with the idea of the two semi-finals being played at Wembley.

Playing the semi-finals there seems to dilute the magic of the Wembley final, he writes in today's Evening Standard.

He tips the attacking strength of Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe and Roman Pavlyuchenko to come through in Spurs semi against Portsmouth on Sunday and says that by then, Chelsea will already have secure their place in the final though it will be a tight match despite Chelsea's 7-1 mauling of Aston Villa in the league just two weeks ago.

Villa have beaten Chelsea once and drawn with them in their last five outings.
