Jose Mourinho against Chelsea is always a treat to watch. Today he will face the Blues again as Tottenham Hotspurs will travel to Stamford Bridge to face Frank Lampard’s men in the Premier League tie.
Tottenham Hotspurs is in excellent form this year and are now just 1 point behind Liverpool with a game in hand.
Tottenham Hotspurs had only lost one game in the opening weekend against Everton and unbeaten in their last 8 games in the league. Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son, both are in excellent form in the last couple of weeks.
Spurs manager Jose Mourinho in the pre-match press conference said, “It’s always difficult to play Chelsea. If I’m not wrong, in the last 16 years they won the Premier League five times, and they didn’t finish in the Champions League positions only once, so this is a team that is used to playing for titles, lots of players, big investments, great squad. They have an amazing squad, so I’m not even worried about who is going to play, because they only have very good players.”
Jose Mourinho was in charge of Chelsea in 2004-2007 and again in 2013-2015. On his return to Stamford Bridge, Jose said, “It’s another game for me, another game. No problem at all.”
On the other hand, Chelsea is also in a mood in the Premier League. They are just 3 points away from the top with a game in hand. Chelsea is also unbeaten in the 7 games in the Premier League.
In the pre-match press conference, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard said, “I think Chelsea-Tottenham is extra special anyway because of the rivalry with the teams. I played in the fixture many times. The fact we’re in good form near the top of the table adds spice – we all want to be fighting for those positions.”
Lampard also showed his respect for his former manager Jose Mourinho. “I have a lot of respect for Jose, it’s not contentious for me.”
The team, who won 3 points today will be at the top of the table after the match. It will surely be a tough match for both sides.
