Chelsea will be away at Tottenham on Sunday, and it’s a special game for Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.

Lampard will be up against his former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, and the current Blues boss has revealed that he’s keen to get the three points against his former coach.

Asked what it will be like facing his old coach, Lampard told BBC’s Football Focus: “I think it will be special. I think it will make a difference to me, I think it will make a difference to him.

“We’re both professionals, we’re driven, and sometimes when you come across someone you worked with or a club that you worked with, it pushes you on that little bit more in the best possible way.

“And it’s Tottenham-Chelsea, that game has enough anyway. And then you have Jose Mourinho there. And he’s going to be desperate to beat us, let’s make no bones.”

Besides being a London derby game, this match is crucial in the top four race with Chelsea just three points ahead of Spurs in the race for a Champions League finish.
