Chelsea is set to meet a former beloved manager this weekend, as the Blues visit London rivals Tottenham at the Tottenham Stadium on Sunday.

Frank Lampard will now be prepared to meet another boss he learnt his trade from, with Carlo Ancelotti set to be unveiled as Everton manager.

The Italian has reportedly agreed a £14million to deal to take charge of Everton after being axed by Napoli.

According to Sky Sports, Carlo Ancelotti will be confirmed as Everton boss by the end of the week.

Caretaker manager Duncan Ferguson is set to step aside for Ancelotti to take charge of the club, having beaten Chelsea 3-1 in his opening game and holding Manchester United to a 1-1 draw.

It’s been reported that Ancelotti has been offered a four-and-a-half-year contract and could take charge of Everton’s Boxing Day clash with Burnley. Duncan Ferguson will also be kept on as an assistant to Ancelotti after his impressive interim work.

Ancelotti was Chelsea boss between 2009 and 2011, and won the Premier League and FA Cup in 2009/10 season, playing emphatic football in the process.
