Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has said he is extra motivated to beat Jose Mourinho, when they travel to Tottenham on Sunday.
Lampard however admits Mourinho will be “desperate” to get a win over his old club.
Spurs were 12 points adrift of Chelsea when Mourinho took over Mauricio Pochettino last month, but victory against the Blues will him leapfrog them into fourth place.
“I think it will be special. I think it will make a difference to me, I think it will make a difference to him.
“We’re both professionals, we’re driven, and sometimes when you come across someone you worked with or a club that you worked with, it pushes you on that little bit more in the best possible way.
“And it’s Tottenham-Chelsea, that game has enough anyway. And then you have Jose Mourinho there. And he’s going to be desperate to beat us, let’s make no bones,” Lampard told BBC Football Focus.
Asked if it would mean more to beat Mourinho, Lampard added: “In my professional head, yes. I want to go up against the best.”
