Frank Lampard has told Tottenham gaffer Jose Mourinho that he should expect verbal attack from the Blues' fans on Sunday, December 22, when they meet.
Frank Lampard will go head to head with the man who coached him while playing for Chelsea as Tottenham host the Blues in what will be a big Premier League tie.
Jose Mourinho was recently hired by Tottenham as replacement for Mauricio Pochettino who was sacked, and the Portuguese has been trying his best to change the fortune of Spurs.
Tottenham are currently occupying fifth position on the Premier League standings with 26 points after 17 games played, while Chelsea are occupying fourth position with 29 points.
“If you go to your fiercest rivals, fans will give the answer. That doesn’t mean they have forgotten the history or don’t respect it.
“Jose Mourinho is a manager who wants to work and took that opportunity.
“He won’t be too concerned, either. Look at the times he came back with Manchester United, it looked like he didn’t care back then.
“We know that it’s a huge rivalry. Probably, in my era, it became the biggest of the London derbies,'' Frank Lampard explained according to UK Sun.
A big win for Tottenham in this Premier League encounter will take them to fourth position on the standings.
