Roberto Soldado believes beating Chelsea will go a long way achieving a top four finish in what is a decisive month for Tottenham.
“This is a really big month for us and Chelsea’s the next game,” Spurs' striker Soldado told the club's official website.
“That’s the one that we’ve got to get a good result at to kick on.
Tottenham will travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday to face Mourinho's Blues. But it will be a tough battle as Chelsea have not lost a game at home this season.
If Eden Hazard is reported fit for the game tomorrow morning, it will be a real threat for Spurs' defence.
The Belgian star has been the standout player for Chelsea this season, scoring 12 and assisting seven in the Premier League.
But Tottenham will be ready to fight to stop Mourinho's men from taking the three points. Spurs boss Tim Sherwood believes they travel to west London under no pressure.
Soldado added: “This month is going to be decisive in how our season pans out so if we can win there I think things will be better for the future.”
Tottenham can hope to break their 24-year drought at Stamford Bridge if they show the same level of performance as against Manchester United at Old Trafford, where they won 2-1 last January.
Chelsea can go seven-points clear over second-placed Liverpool, but if Tottenham can take the spoils, they would move just three points behind their closest rivals Arsenal; who travel to White Hart Lane the following weekend.
