Chelsea visit White Hart Lane today to take on former manager Andre Villas-Boas and Tottenham Hotspur, a side the Blues have not lost to since 2010.
Villas-Boas will be looking for his first three points against Chelsea, who are now managed by his mentor, Jose Mourinho. Second-place Spurs will hope to continue their impressive streak of home shutouts Saturday against a Chelsea offense that is slowly starting to find its stride following a tough losing streak.
In other English Premier League action, Manchester United host West Bromwich Albion, who lit up the scoreboard with the Red Devils in last season’s 5-5 finale. Meanwhile, after failing to record a single win in their Capital One Cup title defense, Swansea City will be looking to turn it around against first-place Arsenal.
The Spurs-Chelsea showdown in the English capital will be followed later in the day by another massive derby in the Spanish capital. After 14 long years without a win over gigantic rivals Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid return to the Bernabeu in hopes of duplicating their 2-1 victory in the Copa del Rey Final a few months ago. While Atletico have recorded six wins in six matches in La Liga play this season, Real will hope the home debut of record signing Gareth Bale can help them catch up to their two biggest rivals.
