This encounter is followed by further N17 clashes with Portsmouth on Saturday and Newcastle the following Sunday, so our Ivory Coast international is keen to take advantage.
The midfielder is still reeling from a disappointing 2-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester City at the weekend, but believes victory over the Blues tonight will bring back the confidence.

Didier said: “We’ve now got three home games in a row and I’m looking at nine points because the confidence is there and we will have the fans behind us.
“Chelsea will be wanting to beat us because they can go joint second in the table, but I’m always confident when we play at home because our fans always get behind us.
“The players are ready for Chelsea because it’s a London derby and we are always ready for games like this.”
For Didier, the match will represent another meeting between him and his fellow countrymen Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou.
Our last game against the Blues resulted in us walking away with the Carling Cup at Wembley last month, so Zokora knows his mates will be out for revenge.
He added: “Salomon and Didier were saying to me before the Final that they were going to win, but I was determined to do my talking on the pitch, and we won!
“They are my good friends and they weren’t happy after Wembley, so they will be looking for revenge.
“But it makes me happy when I play against my friends from my country because it’s good for African football and it gives hope to the youngsters there.”
A quick note to fans - the Spurs Megastore will NOT be open after tonight's game...
Didier Zokora is looking for nine points from our next three home games - starting with tonight's London derby with Chelsea at The Lane.
