Tottenham defender William Gallas is excited going into their derby with Chelsea.

Gallas says the atmosphere will be "electric".

"I am looking forward to the game, everyone here is, it is a pleasure to play in a game like this,” he told the Spurs website.

“These derbies are very important for the fans, the players and the Club and I’m sure the atmosphere will be electric.

“But we are not here for revenge. Last season, we tried our best to qualify for the Champions League and we were unlucky in the end because Chelsea won the competition and took our place, but we are not talking about that.

“This is a Premier League game, three points are at stake for both teams and it only affects this season, nothing else.

"Of course it is an important game for us, people will be watching to see if we can beat Chelsea after winning at Old Trafford, or whether that win against United was just luck. We have to prove how good we are."
