It's Chelsea and Tottenham, not just Mourinho and Villas-Boas,” - David Luiz
Spirits are high at the Spurs camp as they have been in a four-game winning streak, following victories in the Premier League, the Europa League and the latest 4-0 shellacking handed to Aston Villa in the League Cup.
"It was a great performance, good energy, we kept the ball well and that's something we've done in the last few games," Spurs striker Jermaine Defoe told tottenhamhotspur.com after the game against Villa.
Tottenham will be banking on their spectacular form on defense as they have only conceded one goal in their last six outings.
On offense, they will be patient in creating scoring chances through their wingers by providing crosses to the attackers inside the box.

In contrast, Chelsea, which have only won their recent two fixtures against Fulham and Swindon out of their recent six games, will be looking to build up a streak of their own.
A win from the Blues (10 points) could see them go ahead of Tottenham (12 points) on the table and at the very least, remain in the top four.
While it will be a clash of big clubs, it cannot be denied that these two teams boast of two of the most prominent managers in the football world.
Andre Villas-Boas, on one hand, who has somehow proved his worth at White Hart Lane after a dismal spell at Stamford Bridge, has a very promising career.
On the other hand, Jose Mourinho, who was once AVB's mentor, has already shown the world that he can win turn a team's fortunes and win trophies for them.
However, Blues defender David Luiz thinks that the game on Saturday is more than just the managers facing each other, who can never be bigger than the team.
"It's Chelsea and Tottenham, not just Mourinho and Villas-Boas," Luiz told chelseafc.com.
"It'll be a fantastic derby. Everyone will watch this game, everybody wants to play this game. It'll be fantastic. Tottenham have a great team, it's always difficult to play against them. This season is the same."
