Chelsea ace Juan Mata is excited to be facing two Cup semis this week.

With a Champions League semi against Barcelona looming on Wednesday, Chelsea will be keen to avoid extra-time this evening against FA Cup opponents Tottenham.

Mata told The Sun: "We are all very excited about Barcelona. Any person who likes football most love the way they play. At Valencia we beat Barcelona in the semi-finals of the Copa Del Rey so I know they are not unbeatable.

"Many of the Barcelona players are my team-mates in the Spanish squad. know the way they play and train. I know the quality they have and now I would just like to know their weaknesses!

"We will have to be 100 per cent to beat them. But we can do it."
