Tottenham v Chelsea: What has been said?

Jose Mourinho has blamed the EFL for not giving Tottenham a chance of fighting for Carabao Cup success and believes his squad will be hit by injury as they face three games in five days.

Spurs host Chelsea tonight before a final Europa League qualifying tie at home to Maccabi Haifa just 48 hours later.

The hectic week is topped off by a trip to Manchester United on Sunday and Mourinho said: “I would like to fight for the Carabao Cup but I don’t think I can.

“We have a game on Thursday that gives us not as much money as the Champions League but the group phase of the Europa League gives us a certain amount that, for a club like us, is very important.

“It’s a competition with a possible group phase that gives us a good chance to go through to the next knockout stage so this game on Thursday is very important for us.

“I think you can imagine that with a game on Thursday that decides a very important thing for us, I think the EFL made a decision for us.

“They didn’t even create a problem – they made a decision for us. So that’s the decision.”
