Jose Mourinho will prepare his team to face Chelsea in another London derby on Sunday in Premier League at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The Lily whites have enjoyed a good run of form under Mourinho in top-flight despite a 1-2 loss to Manchester United. The Spurs boss has not been a favorite of some section of the fans of the Blues as he continues to hunt them.
Chelsea on the other hand have lost their last two games to Everton and Bournemouth respectively, with the latter ending their losing streak since beating Manchester United. The Blues are currently fourth on the league table with 29 points, stretching Tottenham Hotspur with just three points.
