Just two days after their controversial draw with Newcastle United and two days before their crucial Europa League play-off with Maccabi Haifa, they clashed with their London rivals in the League Cup.
It’s a feud that is rapidly escalating and having lost twice to his former player Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge, Mourinho, he doesn’t want to give them the right to brag anymore in West London.
However, the physics crowd situation means that the Spurs are ready to make a fantastic 11 changes to the team that looked great, but ultimately failed to take three points on Sunday.

“I want to fight for the Carabao (Cup) but I don’t think I can,” Mourinho said.
“We have a game on Thursday that doesn’t pay us as much as the Champions League but the Europa League stage gives us a certain amount which is very important for a club like us.
“It’s a potential group stage competition that gives us a good chance to advance to the next Naka stage, so this game is very important for us on Thursday.
“I think you can imagine tomorrow that with a game on Thursday that decides something very important to us, I think the EFL has decided for us.
“They didn’t cause any problems – they made the decision for us. That is the decision. ”
Lampard, however, has an extra day of rest before the game, and has no plans to return to the club on Saturday if he wants to.
But he still fears the depth of the spurs.
“When I analyze Tottenham and know their squad, and analyze what kind of team they may be that didn’t play 90 minutes yesterday (against Newcastle Castle), they have a great team,” he pointed out. .
“I feel like one of Jose’s teams can be very strong.”
