Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas believes he grew as a coach during his ill-fated nine month spell as Chelsea boss.

The two London clubs meet at White Hart Lane on Saturday with Villas-Boas set to face his former employers for the first time since he was sacked in March, and the 35-year-old is looking forward to seeing some familiar faces
