Tottenham players were so dejected following last season's draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge that some were reduced to tears, according to Spurs left-back Danny Rose.
The north London club went into the fixture knowing that nothing other than a win would keep alive their dreams of winning the Premier League, but despite leading 2-0, they could only draw 2-2 and Leicester City were crowned champions.
Spurs ended up finishing third and face Monaco in the Champions League this evening, but will then travel to Chelsea for the first time since that fateful night in May, and England international Rose has been detailing exactly how heartbreaking that particular blow was.

"It's a feeling that we never want to feel again as a football club. I hope everyone has learned from that and we are going to try to push on this season. We have worked so hard for years and years to get this opportunity and we know if we don't win then we are more or less out of the competition.
"So the manager will put out a strong team I am sure, and we will go out to win that and then on Saturday against Chelsea."
Chelsea finished 10th in the Premier League last season, but are a completely different beast this campaign and look like title challengers once again.
Tottenham also look like heavyweights and remain the only unbeaten side in the English top-flight going into the game - something's got to give!
