Spurs v Chelsea: Great Games - Number 5
Spurs host leaders Chelsea this Saturday lunchtime and Andre Villas-Boas will be desperate to become the first Premier League manager to beat the Blues this season.
The former Porto boss was booted out of Stamford Bridge after only nine months in the job and, although they went on to win the Champions League under Roberto Di Matteo, AVB would love to get one over Roman Abramovich.
Chelsea have made a near perfect start to the new campaign while Spurs have climbed up to fifth following four wins on the bounce, including that historic triumph at Old Trafford.
In the lead up to the big game, all this week we are going to highlight five of the biggest clashes between Spurs and Chelsea at White Hart Lane in the Premier League. Today we start with game number five.
This result holds fond memories for Chelsea fans. It was the last time they won at White Hart Lane. Chelsea used to dominate this fixture. You had to go back to 1987 for the last time Spurs beat the Blues at home in the league. To think that Chelsea have now gone six seasons without a win there in the league is amazing.
Tottenham didn't help themselves in this encounter. Mido was sent off after 25 minutes for an elbow on Chelsea's Asier Del Horno. Fifteen minutes late the Spaniard put the away side ahead with a header from a corner. Damien Duff sealed the points with a mis-hit volley with 20 minutes to go.
Chelsea went on to retain the title while Spurs missed out on a place in the Champions League on the final day to rivals Arsenal.
Come back tomorrow where we will take a look at number 4, Tottenham's first Premier League win over Chelsea at WHL in the Premier League.
Calling all Spurs and Chelsea fans: What has been your greatest game between the two at White Hart Lane? What do you think the score will be this Saturday? Can AVB become the first Premier League manager to defeat the Champions of Europe? Whatever your views, we'd love to hear from you.
