​Tottenham may be breathing down Chelsea's necks in the Premier League, but that doesn't mean that Antonio Conte is taking them too sersiouly for Saturday's FA Cup semi-final clash at Wembley. 

The Italian tactician has bemused a great many supporters - not to mention neutrals - by opting to leave both Diego Costa and Eden Hazard on the bench.

For the record, that's Chelsea's top two goalscorers sitting on the bench with a combined total of 34 goals between them this season.

Madness right? Well Twitter certainly thought so anyway...

Still, at least some saw the funny side to this bemusing decision in a match which may, or may not, also have a baring on the title race.
