Chelsea and Tottenham will renew their rivalry this weekend at the Tottenham Stadium on Sunday 22nd, and it’ll be a heated fixture.

Chelsea and Spurs clash is always a heated fixture to watch, with tension always high as it’s a London derby. What makes this one even more interesting is the fact that Spurs have appointed former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho to take over the reins.

Meanwhile, former Tottenham striker Darren Bent has revealed that this game will mean so much to Jose Mourinho, and he’ll be lying if he says otherwise.

“I know Mourinho will say that playing his ex-team doesn’t really mean anything but I can say as an ex-player that whenever I was playing against an old team, you always wanted to put one over on them,” the 35-year-old told GentingBet.

“Whether they let you go and you want to show them that they made the wrong decision or you decide to go because it’s the best thing for your career and you want to show that you’ve improved as a player. There’s a lot riding on it.

“If he’s going to say that this game doesn’t mean anything to him then I think he’s lying.”
