Tottenham host Chelsea this Saturday in the lunchtime kickoff, with Andre Villas-Boas welcoming his former club to White Hart Lane.
A subplot of the match is the matchup between Villas-Boas and Jose Mourinho, with the former clearly a student of the latter’s work. It promises to be an interesting tactical encounter, if nothing else.
Tottenham are clearly the in-form side of the two, sitting in second place in the Premier League table behind Arsenal. Having only conceded once in the league this season, it will be interesting to see how Mourinho plans to break down the Spurs backline.
