For Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final between Chelsea and Tottenham, new and existing Betway customers can earn a £5 free bet every time the team you back to win scores.

At , it is league leaders Chelsea who are the marginal favourites on Saturday.

But with Spurs , it could well be worth backing the so-called underdogs.

A run of seven wins on the spin has already seen Mauricio Pochettino’s side cut Chelsea’s lead at the top of the Premier League from 13 to four points in recent weeks.

And having averaged more than three goals per game during that run, Tottenham can continue that momentum by ending Chelsea’s chances of a double.

Particularly considering the Blues have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last 10 league games – the worst run of any top-flight side this season.

We are spoilt for choice when assessing the candidates to get on the scoresheet for Spurs.

Son Heung-Min has scored five in his last four games and has six in the FA Cup alone this season, including a hat-trick against Millwall in the quarter-finals.

The South Korean is 13/2 to score first and 11/4 to net at any time, which may be the safer bet should a switch of formation mean his starting spot comes under threat.

The deployment of a back three certainly proved successful for Spurs when ending Chelsea’s 13-game winning streak back in January.

Dele Alli bagged both goals in that 2-0 win, and he is  to score his side's first once again.

It is always dangerous, meanwhile, to overlook top scorer Harry Kane, who scored his first goal after injury last weekend.

Kane is  to get Tottenham off the mark and 7/1 to hit two or more.

Chelsea, though, will see this as a chance to inflict some mental damage of their own.

The Blues prevailed in both of the two recent meetings between these sides at Wembley, with victory in the 2015 League Cup final and a 5-1 thrashing in the 2012 FA Cup.

That was Spurs’ sixth consecutive semi-final defeat in the competition and, given that they have already failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their four European matches at the national stadium this season – winning just one – an outright bet on Chelsea to win looks just as likely to earn a few free bets.

Diego Costa is to end his six-game barren spell by scoring his side's first, but given the continued speculation surrounding the unsettled striker’s long-term future at Stamford Bridge, it may be wise to look elsewhere.

Eden Hazard’s price of to do so is more tempting, especially given that the Belgian already has four goals against Tottenham to his name since arriving in England.

Ander Herrera’s demonstration last weekend in how best to shackle him, though, will have been of particular interest to Tottenham’s own enforcers, Moussa Dembele and Victor Wanyama.

If it’s value that you’re after, then look no further than Pedro, who has four goals in the competition having scored in each of the last three rounds.

The Spaniard is a healthy to score Chelsea’s first goal, as he did against Tottenham at Stamford Bridge earlier this season with a stunning strike.

Goals, then, look a guarantee – which is good news for you whichever side you decide to back in the closest game to call this weekend.
