MOTD THEME TUNE...
Good morning, footie fans.
Not long now until the end of the season.
And here is where you can keep up with all the action.
Here's what's coming up on today's show.
We revisit all the goals from last weekend's FA Cup semifinals.
Then we head to Stamford Bridge to meet a Chelsea superstar
and find out more about the League Schools Cup.
My favourite part of the show, we check out your skills.
Lots to look forward to, but first, let's have a
look at this week's headline hitters.
Check this out from the goalkeeper Mateus Dettori.
Earlier this week he scored an amazing goal
from inside his own area.
What a strike!
Liverpool Ladies were left red-faced earlier this week when
they forgot their kit for a game against Yeovil Town.
With their shirts over 200 miles away, they had
to borrow their opponents away strip.
Luckily for the Reds it did not affect their
performance, they won 4-1.
But definitely one to forget
for whoever was in charge of that kit.
This week saw a busy run of games and the Premier League.
At the top, Spurs kept the pressure up
on league leaders Chelsea, while the big game in Manchester
resulted in a, well, rather disappointing goalless draw
for City and United.
At the bottom relegation now looks likely for
Sunderland, as they lost at Boro.
Loads going on as usual in the footy world this week.
It has been a pretty special one for me, as well.
I was awarded an MBE.
And alongside my England roommate Karen Carney.
It shows any aspirations you have to be a professional football
player, just some hard work and determination, maybe one day you
could have an MBE also.
All those hours training have paid off for the
Chelsea superstars this season, as they are four points clear
at the top of the table.
We have found out about a fantastic footie tournament for
young stars of the future.
Surely it is every young player's dream to
turn out for their local Premier League club
at a top-flight football stadium.
For some that dream becomes a reality later on in May at the
Premier League Schools Cup Final.
The draw is taking place today at Chelsea's training ground
Let's see who has got who.
Who better to conduct the draw than the emerging Chelsea star,
Pupils from the John Keble Primary School, top skills.
And Chelsea women's star, Beth England.
First team is Crystal Palace.
West Bromwich Albion.
West Ham United.
The draw has concluded.
Let's have a look.
Group B leaps out at you.
Liverpool, Everton and the hosts, Chelsea.
What about Group D?
Spurs and Arsenal.
And Man United!
Have you done draws like that before or is it your first time?
I imagined I was doing Champions League!
It was fun.
It will probably be the first time ever playing at a football stadium
with the cameras crowd.
What is it like?
You don't know what is happening.
You get butterflies.
Can you sleep the night before?
I think it is hard to try and get a good
night's sleep knowing there is such a big game coming up.
But the nerves are good, it shows how passionate
you are about the sport.
For me, when I step on the pitch it all went.
You are in the zone playing football.
No matter how talented you are you need to be
focused, put your head down and work to be better.
Otherwise you won't go anywhere.
On top of that having belief is a big aspect.
You need to believe in your own ability.
What an amazing tournament.
Hundreds of you from all over the country playing at
The Premier League Schools Tournament takes place next
month and as usual, we are bringing you all the action
right here on Kickabout.
Look out for that in a few weeks.
Speaking about you at home, time now for your skills.
Here's Alex with a free kick for his team.
Like that celebration, the passion!
And here's Spencer tapping it into a bin.
I am loving it.
And a cheeky dab.
His sister Caitlin, can she do it?
Of course she can!
She can even go one better with the dab.
Elliott, around the bin.
Love that curl on that free kick right there.
He runs away with a nice celebration.
And we have Flynn.
Wow, over a goal, onto a table and into a goal.
You've got to love that family celebration.
That's how much it means to him.
Nice one, you lot.

You could be on the show soon.

or maybe you were at one of last weekend's FA Cup semifinals.
If so, send us a picture like this.
Yes, Kickabout fans, he was not only at
the Chelsea training ground last week, he also watched them play.
Isn't he a Leeds fan?
Kickabout fans, welcome to Wembley Stadium.
This afternoon Antonio Conte's Chelsea take on Mauricio
Pochettino's Spurs side for a place in the FA Cup final.
What is your score prediction?
Chelsea are going to get two goals.
Hopefully John Terry will be on the pitch because I named my
hamster after him, JT.
I am stood here pitchside, which is incredible.
This is a big game.
I cannot wait to see what happens, so I best go and
take my seat!
Listen to that noise as the teams take to the field.
Everybody here is ready for a huge encounter.
Willian scores for Chelsea!
And immediately repays the faith the manager has shown in him.
A goal so early for Chelsea.
Perfect start for Antonio Conte's men.
A good ball and flicked on, it is in the net!
It is anybody's game.
The cup tie is on.
Willian to put Chelsea in front.
And he does.
They lead 2-1 at half-time.
It is when you are supposed to score.
Chelsea have done.
That is a delightful ball!
What a great goal.
Dele Alli scores it.
Christian Eriksen makes it with one of the
assists of the season.
In goes this corner kick.
Dangerous, it is Eden Hazard!
For the third time in their semifinal
they are in front.
He has only just come on, but that is a quality of the man.
Still Eden Hazard.
You can probably hear the Chelsea fans behind me
singing their hearts out.
Their side have won 4-2 at Wembley.
They have swept Spurs side on their way to the
FA Cup final.
A six-goal thriller and Chelsea made it
through to the final.
Here is what happened in the other match, between
Arsenal and Manchester City.
COMMENTATOR: Good tackle by Yaya Toure.
Aguero is going.
He will try and stay in front of Monreal.
He lifts it over Cech to score.
A really good cross.
Really good finish.
Nacho Monreal has buried that.
Arsenal are back in it.
Into the middle.
Downwards for Welbeck.
Listen to the Arsenal roar around Wembley now.
Arsenal are into the FA Cup final.
There will be no trophy for Pep Guardiola in his first
STUDIO: Get in!
I can't wait for my day out at Wembley.
Sorry, City fans!
Seriously, tough game for the gunners.
For me the turning points were definitely
City's missed chances.
Yaya Toure with this shot when he hit the post,
great save from Cech.
Then you have Fernandinho hitting it off the crossbar.
They like the woodwork in this game.
And in extra time, Delph misses.
Finding Delph and he has missed.
Quite a few City fans thought he had scored.
The final should be a great match at Wembley.
Speaking of big games in the capital, there is a north London
This is my pick of the ones to watch.
For the Gunners I have to go with Alex
Look at this cross in that game for Nacho Monreal.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has got so much energy.
So much pace it could be frightening.
He is a great dribbler of the ball.
And for Spurs I have got to choose Christian
Eriksen, because he already has 16 assists this season in all
competitions, including both in last weekend's game.
Left-footed, right-footed and shows the importance of
having a player like that that can deliver quality balls into the box.
That's a delightful ball!
What a great goal!
Dele Alli scores it, but Christian Eriksen makes it with one
of the assists of the season.
Brilliant, brilliant Tottenham equaliser!
It really should be a great game.
You know what that means!
Time for more goals and this week it has definitely got to be
a derby-based special.
Surely the best goal he has ever scored.
What a finish that is.
That is absolutely fantastic!
He has left it.
It is Emre.
This is brilliant.
He scores again.
What a moment for Gary Cahill!
Oh, McAllister has scored a fantastic goal.
It is Jermain Defoe!
Oh, my goodness me.
What a goal.
That is an incredible strike by Harry Kane.
Tell you what, if we see anything like that tomorrow in the north
London derby we are in for a real treat.
I can't wait.
That is nearly it for this week but before we go,
with Anthony Joshua defending his IBF world heavyweight title this
evening, we thought we would revisit his dream five aside.
This is Anthony Joshua, the heavyweight
champion of the world.
Starting in goal would be Joe Hart, the reason
being he is England's number one, so I have to go with the best.
Moving on to defence, I would choose Pepe,
Real Madrid defender.
He is a beast.
He holds up everyone, so I choose him.
My first midfielder would be Yaya Toure.
I just know the guy is a beast and he comes to
Here he comes, Yaya Toure!
Alongside him in midfield would be myself.
Look at that triangle.
Pepe, Yaya Toure and myself.
The three beasts holding it down.
My star man up top banging in all the goals would be
the one and only Troy Deeney.
Watford player, that is my hometown, so I have got to give him support
and he's doing really well.
He will definitely be on form.
COMMENTATOR: And who else
but the talismanic Troy Deeney?
STUDIO: Thanks, Anthony.
And a massive good luck for tonight.
That is all for today but make sure you join us again next week for more
top footie action.
I best get going.
I've got Sunderland away this weekend.
