Tottenham Hotspur take on Chelsea this weekend as they look to break into the top four for the first time under Jose Mourinho.

With a three-point gap between Spurs and Chelsea, as well as a superior goal difference for the Lilywhites, a win would take Tottenham above their bitter rivals.

When Mourinho took over from Pochettino a month ago, Spurs were 14th in the League, 12 points below Chelsea in fourth.

Tottenham have won four of their last five under the Special One, while Chelsea have lost four of their last five games under Frank Lampard.

Of course, Jose Mourinho managed Chelsea for two separate spells in the Premier League, winning plenty of silverware in the process.

Mourinho also coached Frank Lampard during his time in West London, but the new Spurs head coach insists that he is 100 per cent Tottenham heading into the derby.

Stating there is no emotional room in his mind for old clubs, Mourinho said: “I am 100% Tottenham, 100% my club always, all my career. No space at all for my previous clubs. It’s so easy for me to play that game. Difficult because of Chelsea’s quality but not difficult from an emotional POV.”
