Ex-Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is relishing the chance to take on his former club, when the Blues head to White Hart Lane to take on Spurs on Saturday.
Villas-Boas was axed by Chelsea in March, but was quickly back in the saddle as he succeeded Harry Redknapp at Tottenham and, after a slow start, Spurs have won four of their last five Premeir League games to rise up to fifth place in the table.
This is a very good moment for us to play them.Andre Villas-Boas
The Blues are doing even better, as they top the table after dropping just two points from their first seven league games.
All of which ensures that there will be an atmosphere to savour at lunchtime on Saturday, with Villas-Boas saying: "This gives us the opportunity to play the league leaders at home, undefeated for a while and with a good chance to go nearer the top.
"It is obviously going to be a difficult game, but we are showing a good level of competence.
"They have a lot of very young, dynamic players, but so do we and we are playing very well right now. This is a very good moment for us to play them."
This fixture has ended 1-1 in each of the last two seasons and is 6.00 to do so for a third consecutive time, while Spurs are 3.00 to register their first win over the Blues since April 2010.
Chelsea, who will be without John Terry after he accepted a four-match FA ban, are 2.37 to take all three points.
