Jose Mourinho has managed Chelsea twice in his career, and the Portuguese has won three Premier League titles for the Blues.

He’s the most successful manager in Chelsea’s history but now has a bad blood with the Chelsea fans following his move to Manchester United after being sacked by Chelsea.

The former Chelsea boss is now in charge of Tottenham, and he has admitted that he has no emotions heading to this game, insisting that he gave everything to his former clubs.

Asked in his pre-match press conference if he could get away from the fact that it’s Jose Mourinho against his former club, Jose replied: “Yes, of course. I can, maybe others cannot. I can. For me, it’s a game. I am 100% Tottenham, I am 100% my club, always. All my career, 100% my club, no space at all for my previous clubs.

“I gave everything to all of my previous clubs. Everything. I kept nothing from them. I gave everything, but they are my previous clubs. I give everything I have to my club – and my club is Tottenham.

“For me, it’s so easy for me to play this game. Difficult because of the quality of Chelsea, but not difficult from an emotional point of view, not difficult at all. Easy.”
