It’s Chelsea vs Tottenham, a derby game that always draws tension, and we could be in for more this evening, following what happened to Tottenham’s title hopes last season.
The new Blues manager already understands what this fixture means to the fans.
He said: “In London there are a lot of teams, but this game is special for our fans. It’s not important to look at the past and I hope it’s not difficult to keep focus.
“We are working a lot to improve our football, to play good football, and I think during the game we must be focused on the game, and then to put our right passion in. I want my players to play with great intensity and great passion, but always in the right way.”
The match comes up this evening at Stamford Bridge, 17:30 GMT.
