Chelsea will look to move on from the heart-breaking Carabao Cup final defeat and they will have to do it quickly as Tottenham Hotspur come knocking on the Stamford Bridge doors in Wednesday’s Premier League clash.
Maurizio Sarri will have a difficult job in regrouping his players before the London derby comes calling, and even himself, as things did not go smoothly on Sunday.
The last time these two sides met, Chelsea blew their rivals away with a stern performance in the second leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final, in which the Blues came out victorious on penalties.
Ahead of the heated tie, we have looked at three players who have worn both the blue of Chelsea and the white of Spurs.
Jason Cundy (Chelsea 1988-1992, Tottenham Hotspur 1992-1996)
Jason Cundy can be considered as one of the true Blues throughout the club’s history.
The towering defender begin his football at the club amongst the youth ranks before becoming professional in 1988.
Cundy won no major trophies during his time in South West London and made only 41 league appearances, scoring two goals before he moved to Spurs in 1992.
His time at White Hart Lane was not as successful as he planned, having been sporadically used throughout his time there.
In fact, he spent the majority of his time there out on loan to various clubs which included Crystal Palace, Bristol City and Ipswich Town.
After just 28 league appearances he moved to Ipswich Town on a permanent basis and featured for them on 55 occasions over a three-year spell.
He finished his short career at Portsmouth as he was forced to retire due to a recurring knee injury.
Since retiring Cundy has gone back to his roots and is currently a commentator and presenter on Chelsea TV, as well as talkSPORT.
Bobby Smith (Chelsea 1950-1955, Tottenham Hotspur 1955-1964)
Born in Yorkshire, Bobby Smith signed for Chelsea in 1950 at the age of 17.
Smith never really established himself as a regular at the Bridge but he did manage to make 74 league appearances, scoring 23 goals in the process.
A transfer fee of £18,000 was enough to seal him a move to White Hart Lane in 1955, which was considered a lot at the time.
Having not nailed down a true place at Chelsea, he managed to do the opposite at Tottenham.
In the 1960/61 double-winning season, he was at the very forefront of it as he scored 33 goals in 43 games in all competitions.
Spurs went on to win the league and the FA Cup, and they even managed to retain the cup in the next season.
Smith is second in Spurs’ all-time leading scorers with 208 goals, second only to Jimmy Greaves.
After nine years at the club, he left for Brighton & Hove Albion before retiring at Hastings United in 1967.
On the international stage, Smith played 15 times for England and scored 13 goals between 1960 and 1963.
Les Allen (Chelsea 1954-1959, Tottenham Hotspur 1959-1965)
Les Allen was signed by Chelsea in 1954 as an inside forward, a position that is unheard of in modern-day football.
The attacker was at the Bridge for five years, but only managed 44 league appearances and 11 goals before moving to Spurs in 1959.
Along with Smith, he helped Tottenham win the double in the 1960/61 campaign, with the two forming a lethal partnership at the pinnacle of their attack.
After 47 league goals and 119 appearances, Allen left Spurs for rivals Queens Park Rangers in 1965.
Allen won the League Cup for QPR in 1967. He retired two years later with 128 league games and 55 goals to his name.
Following his playing career, he dabbled in the managerial game. Allen was briefly the manager of QPR before he took charge of Swindon Town in 1972. This would be his last managerial job.
