David Luiz spoke very highly of Chelsea's FA Cup semi-final opponents Tottenham ahead of Saturday's clash, insisting their players are 'monsters'.
The Brazilian centre-back, who has been a key player for Chelsea at the heart of the defence this season, is expecting the match at Wembley on the weekend to be 'fantastic.'
Chelsea currently sit top of the Premier League, four points ahead of second-placed Tottenham with six matches to go and Luiz is very wary of the threat Mauricio Pochettino's side pose.

'For me they are an amazing team with an amazing coach in Mauricio Pochettino,' Luiz told the London Evening Standard.
'They are the best physical team in the league. All 11 players are monsters. I love that team.
'It will be a difficult game for us. We need to be ready to play against one of the best sides in this League. But it was always going to be hard when you reach a semi-final.

'Will we have to be monsters too? Yes. Chelsea also have some monsters and play like a monster like N'Golo Kante. We have different kinds of monsters.
'It will be a fantastic game, both clubs are in amazing shape. It will be a top-quality match to watch and you have to play top quality to win.'
Victory for either Chelsea or Tottenham on Saturday will ensure an FA Cup final against Arsenal or Manchester City at the end of May.
