The Baggies' new loan signing had an unhappy time at Chelsea under the Portuguese, now in charge at Tottenham, and can prove a point when he faces his old manager on Saturday
The 19-year-old spent much of Villas-Boas’ reign at Chelsea exiled to the fringes of the Blues' squad, having been signed from Anderlecht for an initial £13 million last summer.

Lukaku, loaned out to the Baggies by current Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo, now has the chance to show former boss Villas-Boas what he is made of, but the young striker says he is only focused on earning a result for the team.
“This is West Bromwich Albion playing Tottenham, not me playing Andre Villas-Boas,” Lukaku told The Sun.
West Brom kicked off their Premier League campaign in style, registering a 3-0 win over Liverpool at the Hawthorns last Saturday, and Lukaku impressed with a debut goal for his new side.
But despite spending an unhappy nine months at Stamford Bridge under Villas-Boas, Lukaku insists that period is behind him and he is ready to fire West Brom to back-to-back victories.
“What happened last year was very much last year,” he added. “The only thing I care about is getting the three points for West Bromwich.”
