Spurs vs Chelsea | Premier League preview

It’s master versus the apprentice in Premier League Gameweek 18 as Jose Mourinho‘s Spurs host Frank Lampard‘s Chelsea in north London.

The current Blues boss was one of Mourinho‘s most trusted lieutenants during his spell in charge at Chelsea but there will be no room for sentiment on Sunday afternoon.

Just three points separate the two sides and victory for Spurs will see them draw level with their capital rivals in the battle for a place in the top four.

But how will Mourinho choose to set his side up as he looks to get the better of Lampard? Given that Spurs are on home turf they will surely take the game to their opponents, but that may well play into Chelsea’s hands as they boast several attacking players who are comfortable operating on the counter attack.
