On the eve of the Great London battle between Tottenham and Chelsea, Lampard said that his former teacher should not complain about the situation of the force.
After the match against Leipzig in the Champions League, coach Mourinho repeatedly complained about the situation of the force of Tottenham in the absence of two leading stars in attack: Son Heung Min and Harry Kane.
On the eve of the decisive match with Chelsea today, “The Special One” emphasized: “It is extraordinary to be in the top 4 Premier League without Son Heung Min and Harry Kane.”
Prior to that statement, Mourinho’s former student, Lampard (now Chelsea coach) had proved dissatisfied. He voiced that coach Mourinho should not complain to Chelsea also fall into equally difficult situations.
The English manager said: “Mourinho is still in the hands of other attacking players. For me, Dele Alli was the best partner for Harry Kane, while Lucas Moura scored a hat-trick in the Champions League last season. They are all good offensive players.
I’m not sure many clubs in the Premier League face a crisis of our own. Before the start of the season, Chelsea lost 4-5 important players and this time too. N’Golo Kante has been the main starter at Chelsea for many years and he has only played 50% of the matches this season. Ruben Loftus-Cheek has not even shot a shot.
I think the coaches all have the same problem. When the players are in difficulty, the clubs face great losses. Even so, Tottenham has a seasoned squad. They were able to find replacements for Harry Kane and Son Heung Min. Either way, I don’t think that Tottenham’s power has diminished. They are still tough opponents. ”
Before this match, Chelsea are ranked fourth with 41 points. They are 1 point ahead of Tottenham. Therefore, this match is important to the race to win the Champions League.
