Jose Mourinho has previewed Tottenham’s EFL Cup clash with Chelsea on Tuesday night in a press conference.

He explained that Spurs are unable to “fight” for the EFL Cup because of the team’s hectic schedule, suggesting he will have to make a number of changes for Tuesday’s London derby.

Tottenham face Chelsea just two days after drawing with Newcastle United in the Premier League, and on Thursday they must play a crucial Europa League qualifier against Maccabi Haifa.

Mourinho revealed every player apart from Heung-min Son – who picked up a hamstring injury on Sunday – is in contention to play against Chelsea.

Watch the press conference below.



  1. A question of Mourinho throwing in the towel knowing that Chelsea will win come what may and already having an excuse before kick off.
    Should say that it will be difficult on all fronts but will give it a good go.

  2. Hilarious stuff from Moaninho again. This is why there’s a pathetic 1 league cup in 20 years of Joe Lewis and his cardboard cutout. They aren’t interested in trophy’s…’s about filling their coffers. Prioritise the financial gain again instead of real tangible success in silverware.
    They even got a buy to this round which was an utter disgrace, I’m sure the O’s would av loved a chance to play Chelsea tonight, a good cup run is priceless for the lower league sides, but here we are with another manager chucking a competition for ENICs scrooge mcduck ways. A buy in a trophy they don’t even want at the expense of a div 2 club. Maybe if a few players were bought in they wouldn’t av to prioritise? Imagine? A back up striker??
