Mourinho complained in an interview that Tottenham’s schedule is very dense, but Chelsea coach Frank Lampard believes that all teams have the same schedule.
After the draw with Newcastle, Mourinho said: “I want to fight for the League Cup, but I don’t think I can do it. We also have a Europa League game on Thursday. This game gives us money. Not as much as the Champions League, but entering the Europa League group stage will bring us a certain amount of money, which is very important for a club like ours."
"We have the opportunity to advance to the knockout stage from the group stage of this event, so Thursday's game is very important."
When asked about Mourinho’s remarks, Lampard said: “Yes, I know this is a tight schedule for Tottenham because they have a Europa League game. This is for us It’s a tight schedule for everyone. They didn’t have a game in the last week, but we are not like that."
"I know they will have a busy week this week, but when I analyze Tottenham and their lineup, I may be analyzing the Tottenham lineup that did not play 90 minutes yesterday."
"They have a very good lineup, so I think any lineup sent by Jose will have a strong strength. For us, Tottenham and the teams competing for the top four in the league and qualifying for the Champions League, the League Cup has its place. , Of course we respect this event and we will strive to win every event we participate in."
