BT Sport viewers have a major London derby to look forward to this weekend, as Tottenham Hotspur host Chelsea at White Hart Lane on Saturday September 28th.

It will be a case of the master versus the apprentice, as Portuguese managers André Villas-Boas and Jose Mourinho go head-to-head in the Barclays Premier League.

The Spurs boss worked under Mourinho at Porto, Chelsea and Inter Milan, but will now be plotting his downfall ahead of Saturday's televised encounter (Kick-off 12:45pm on BT Sport 1).

Villas-Boas comes up against the club that sacked him as manager after just nine months last spring, with his revamped Spurs team in a fine run of form.

As well as four wins in five Barclays Premier League matches this season, the team has recorded resounding victories against Dinamo Tbilisi and Tromso in the Europa League.

Chelsea's performances have been solid if not spectacular so far in 2013-14, with business-like wins against Hull, Aston Villa and Fulham in the league.

However, a 1-0 defeat at Everton ended the second honeymoon for returning boss Mourinho, before a home Champions League loss to FC Basel rubbed salt in the wounds.

Going in to the sixth round of Premier League fixtures, Tottenham sit in second place in the table, just behind local rivals Arsenal on goal difference.

And with Chelsea just two points behind, one of these sides will be leading the pack following Saturday's lunchtime fixture.

BT Sport is showing a host of other matches at the weekend, starting with the Friday night Conference Premier League clash between Kidderminster Harriers and Aldershot Town, live on BT Sport 2 (Friday September 27th, 7:45pm kick-off).

The following day, BT Sport viewers can tune into Eintracht Frankfurt v Hamburg in the German Bundesliga, live on BT Sport 1 at 5:30pm, followed by AC Milan v Sampdoria from Italy's Serie A at 7:45pm.

Over on BT Sport 2, fans of French top-flight football can enjoy Lyon v Lille, which has a 7pm kick-off.

Five more live games will be broadcast on Sunday September 29th, including Torino v Juventus at 11:30am and Liverpool Ladies v Bristol Academy WFC in the FA Women's Super League at 2pm, both live on BT Sport 2.

Eintracht Braunschweig v VFB Stuttgart follows at 4:30pm on BT Sport 1, before Roma v Bologna at 7:45pm on BT Sport 2 and Reims v Monaco on BT Sport 1 at 8pm.
