Chelsea will get the chance to make up for their most embarrassing Premier League defeat of the season by smashing Spurs at Wembley. Tottenham managed to advance to the final with a 3-2 aggregate victory over Sheffield United, thought they did their best to Spurs things up in the dying minutes of that contest. Luckily for Tottenham fans (poor souls that they are), Christian Eriksen isn't terrible at kicking a football.

As always, the final will be played at Wembley Stadium in London, and it will be Chelsea's only opportunity to play there this season. The game is scheduled for March 1, meaning that Chelsea's Premier League match against Leicester City on February 28 will be postponed. While we're yet to hear the exact date when that match will be made up, Chelsea's elimination from the FA Cup and Leicester unlikely to advance too much further, finding a suitable date before the end of the season shouldn't be too difficult.
