Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is relishing the opportunity to face Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday. Under Jose Mourinho, Frank Lampard became one of the best players in the world during his time as a player for Chelsea.

“I think it will be special,” Lampard told the BBC. “It will make a difference for me and a difference for him, because we are professionals, we are driven. And sometimes when you come across someone you worked with, that pushes you on that little bit more in the best possible way.

“And it is Tottenham vs Chelsea. That game has enough, anyway, and then you have Jose Mourinho there.

“He is going to be desperate to beat us. Of course, I want to go up against the best. When I have gone up against Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp this season, you want to say, ‘Can I show against these incredible managers what I can do and my team can do?’ It will be a similar feeling on Sunday.”

A win for Chelsea will take them 6 points above Tottenham, while a win for Tottenham will take them over Chelsea on goal difference.
