Student, once again, meets teacher this Sunday as Lampard and Mourinho renew their acquaintances. Lampard won both Premier League games against his former boss last season but failed to get past the Portuguese in their most recent game in the EFL Cup.

Exciting encounter on the cards
Chelsea and Spurs head into this game in 3rd and 1st place respectively. Both sides have been fantastic in the league this season with 43 goals scored between both sides and just one loss in nine games for them. As such, we expect neutral fans to be treated to to-quality football given the attacking talent on show.
Chelsea has been immense over the past few games with six straight wins in all competitions. With four clean sheets in that same period, coupled with the fact that they also managed 18 goals, the Blues are now looking like title challengers. Lampard and his troops secured qualification to the knockout stages of their most recent game even with two games left showing just how good they have become.
Spurs, on the other hand, made a vital statement in their most recent league game at home to Manchester City. They registered their sixth league win of the season via goals from Son and Lo Celso. Mourinho made it two wins from two against Pep and as such, staked their claim for their first trophy since 2008. That being said, they're faced with quite a game in this weekend's London derby away at Chelsea. Will they manage to knock off another top side?
