Former Chelsea captain John Terry has aimed a dig at Tottenham Hotspur's manager and his former boss JoséMourinho. The banter follows their 2-0 defeat to Chelsea in last weekend's English Premier League (EPL) clash at their home stadium.

Mourinho's men returned to winning ways with victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers before losing to Chelsea which is now managed by his ex-player, Frank Lampard.

Meanwhile Heung-min Son was handed a red card during the game, having fouled Antonio Rudiger in the second half.
Mourinho's men are seventh on the table with 26 points after 18 matches but the manager is hoping to help Spurs finish in a Champions League position come next year May.
It was reported that Willian emerged match hero as his scintillating performance inspired Chelsea to a 2-0 win over Tottenham on Sunday
