Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur clashes have always been memorable due to the spectacular atmosphere and passion between the two London sides.

This time round however, it will be a little bit different.

Jose Mourinho will face his former apprentice in Andre Villas-Boas and the two managers have been at odds since 2009, when they opted to move on with their careers separately.

Villas-Boas was Mourinho's former scout and wanted a more senior role in order to be more involved, but the latter didn't have a need for an assistant and he didn't want someone too close to him either.

Speaking on his relationship with Mourinho, Villas-Boas said: "I felt I could give him much more. But he didn't feel the need for somebody near to him or in another position as an assistant, and because of that it was decided that it was time, after Inter Milan, to continue our careers apart."

The Spurs manager has himself admitted that their relationship had broken down and that they are no longer friends.

This will certainly spice things up for the derby and make no mistake, it will be no ordinary game, bearing in mind the bitter feud between the Portuguese counterparts, which is likely to overshadow the footballing aspect of the fixture.

On the more positive note, it will be a fierce but good battle between two strong sides, with Spurs having signed some outstanding talent during the Summer and Chelsea having strengthened as well.

It will be good to see whether the Spurs are good enough to match Chelsea and how the new players fare in a game of such magnitude.
