Sunday's semi-final against Tottenham has been billed as the least important of the Blues' season-defining matches during their punishing end to the campaign. But the Wembley showpiece is far from expendable, according to caretaker manager Di Matteo, who vowed to play his strongest team and order them to hold nothing back this weekend.

"Whatever it takes for us to reach the final, we will do," he said. "We're not going to throw anything away, absolutely not."
