Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is refusing to treat Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash against his former side Chelsea as a personal revenge mission.

The 35-year-old was sacked as Chelsea manager in March after less than nine months in charge and faces the Blues for the first time since replacing Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane.

But despite leaving Stamford Bridge under a cloud, Villas-Boas will not be treating the match any differently to any other league fixture, and said: "In the end there is one thing which has been to a certain extent blown out of proportion in some ways - this is certainly not a personal matter."
