FOOTBALL WAR: Tottenham Star Promises Chelsea Hell At Stamford Bridge


Tottenham defender, Jan Vertonghen has promised Chelsea's fans hell when both teams trade tackles tonight at Stamford Bridge, rather than enter a war of words with coach Jose Mourinho.

 The Belgian was labelled a 'disgrace' by the Chelsea boss after falling to the floor when clashing with Fernando Torres when the clubs last met in September at White Hart Lane.
But Vertonghen believes that he can prove himself on the pitch, and is confident of a shock three points for Spurs against the Premier League leaders.
'If we want to reach the Champions League we have to win this game,' Verthonghen told The Sun, with his club currently four points adrift of Manchester City in fourth place, who have two games in hand.
'I did not respond to Mourinho at the time - and I won't do it now.
'I don't want to add fuel to the fire in the run-up to the match. I don't want to go into a war of words with Mourinho. I just want to prove myself on the field.'
During the 1-1 draw between the two sides last year, Torres was sent off for a second yellow in the 81st minute after he raised his hands at Vertonghen.
Even though the contact was minimal, the centre-half threw himself to the ground, and Mourinho was not best pleased.
