JOSE MOURINHO'S Tottenham made it three straight wins with a 3-2 victory over Bournemouth.
And next up is a personal battle for the Special One, with a trip to former club Manchester United.

TOTTENHAM are looking to sign Norwich's Ben Godfrey in January, according to Football Insider.
The Canaries' centre-back would reportedly be available for £25m.
Despite the arrival of Jose Mourinho, Spurs have not yet been able to agree new deals with ageing duo Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld.
And the North Londoners are now set to rekindle their interest in the England Under-21 star who they attempted to sign in the summer.
TOTTENHAM will push to sell Christian Eriksen in January.
They are keen to avoid losing the Dane, who will be out of contract at the end of the season, for free in the summer.
The Standard reports Spurs will accept bids of less than £40m for the midfielder.
Eriksen has so far refused to sign a new deal, despite reportedly being offered a wage in the region of £200,000-per-week, which would make him one of the club's top earners.
THE feelgood factor is in full flow at Spurs right now.
JOSE Mourinho has certainly got the best out of Dele Alli since arriving at Spurs and he has been heaping praise on the England man.
The Portuguese is used to working with some of the game's best and believes Alli has all the hallmarks of a player who can go on to be a world star.
Mourinho said: “Dele has amazing potential, again we are going to try and develop this talent to be consistent and be great for club and national team. That is what we are going to do.
“He wants, clearly he wants and we are going to try and give everything to reach this level.”
MICHAEL OWEN has given his take on the United-Spurs game.
In writing for BetVictor, the former striker predicted a draw. Yawn.
He noted: “United shared four goals and the points with Villa on Sunday and it would not surprise me if we saw a similar result midweek when Jose Mourinho returns to Old Trafford for the first time since being sacked as United manager 12 months ago.
“Both teams have scored and conceded in their last four games while Spurs have shipped two goals in all three fixtures since the Portuguese boss replaced Mauricio Pochettino in north London. It promises to be a terrific occasion and one I see finishing with honours even.”
FRANK LAMPARD'S Chelsea have now gone three games without a win.
And it is Aston Villa up next for the Blues at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, who ground out an impressive 2-2 draw at Man Utd on Sunday.

CHELSEA icon Pat Nevin believes fans shouldn't be panicking despite the club failing to win any of their last three games in all competitions.
Writing for the Blues' website, he said: “Is it time to panic yet after these three results? Absolutely not, we certainly had as many decent chances as West Ham and the statistics were off the scale in our favour.
“We had two-thirds of the possession and 19 shots on goal to five, though gauging by the TV highlights you might have thought it was the opposite way around!
“No matter, if we keep those levels up then the majority of those type of games will end in the three points residing at Stamford Bridge.
“The weakness at corners seemed to be creeping back in at the weekend, so Frank and Jody will look at that too, but overall it was the usual open style that the fans have been getting used to of late. There is no doubt that this open style will lead to some goals being lost.”
Before adding: ” A win tomorrow against Villa will put a completely different spin on this period and we must remember the previous run of games was fantastic.
“That is what Frank will be telling the team, even if up until now he would have been saying ‘Don’t get carried away with the results’. Now it will be more like, ‘Remember how good those results and performances were’. The same attitude and form again and we are most likely to go on yet another decent run, hopefully starting tomorrow.”
CHELSEA boss Frank Lampard knows what it is like to impress a footballing dad, having done so countless times with his own parent, Frank Sr, who is also a West Ham legend.
So even Lampard Jr was happy for David Martin after the keeper's man-of-the-match debut for the Hammers at the age of 33 helped sink Chelsea 1-0.
And Lamps knew how Martin’s father Alvin, with 471 league appearances, was feeling when he gave his son an emotional hug after David “did a Pat Cash” and jumped into the crowd.
Lampard said: “I’m sure Alvin is very proud. To come in like he did with all the talk, his son played a very good game and it was great.
“I was very happy for him. He has worked hard and got an opportunity to play for West Ham. To do as well as he did — we have to give credit.”
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN superstar Kylian Mbappe finally got his dream selfie with Didier Drogba – TEN years after first being snubbed by the Ivorian legend.
Mbappe, then ten-years-old, was present for Chelsea's Champions League semi-final second leg against Barcelona at Stamford Bridge in 2009.
And the youngster wouldn't have believed his luck when, as a favour to a friend, Drogba agreed to take a picture with him after the game.
But after a stormy and controversial encounter that saw Chelsea cruelly knocked out on away goals in the dying moments of the game.
Drogba refused to take the picture, as he was too incensed – following FOUR big penalty appeals being turned down by referee Tom Henning Ovrebo.
Ten years on, however, Drogba finally made good on his promise.
The 41-year-old presented Mbappe with his award for coming sixth in this year's Ballon d'Or.
Didier Drogba is branching out in retirement. The Blues legend spent the evening with the great and good of world football at the Ballon D'or awards in Paris.
It proved to be the perfect chance to make up for a 10 year debt which needed paying to a certain Kylian Mbappe.
Frank Lampard has been talking to the club website about the attacking options at his disposal.
An injury concern for Tammy Abraham means Lampard will likely have to rely on his squad for the next few games.
He even says he could be tempted to play Christian Pulisic as a striker going forward.
Lampard said:‘We’ll see. He does have an ability to run behind the line, and to be sharp in central areas which will naturally get him more goals.”
