Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino: No repeat of Stamford Bridge battle
ESPN - Friday 21st April, 2017
LONDON -- Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has said there will be no repeat of the "Battle of the Bridge" in Saturday's FA Cup semifinal against Chelsea at Wembley.
Pochettino said he and his team had matured since Tottenham's implosion in last season's title run-in, with their 2-2 draw from 2-0 up at Chelsea, in a match littered with yellow cards, confirming Leicester as champions.
The manager has admitted his team, who had eight players booked, "crossed a line" in that match.

Pochettino added: "The reality was that it was my first time as a manager fighting for the Premier League.
