Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has revealed he will be disappointed with his players if they don’t show their quality against Chelsea after having a full week to train with his squad.

“I hope the team improves,” Mourinho said. “I think we are improving step by step but fundamentally we are improving more with the matches we play than the training sessions we have.

“The matches are what’s bringing us to do the correct things, to do mistakes, analyse the mistakes, to go over the mistakes which of course we did since I arrived.

“Another thing is to have a training week to work so I would be disappointed if the team doesn’t answer well to the quality they gave me because they gave me lots of quality and commitment, and desire in this week of work.

“When I say ideas I say obviously the tactical ideas, but one thing is to do it with lower intensity because you played yesterday or you play tomorrow.

“The intensity of the ideas has been different because we always try to bring the ideas to the training pitch.

“You don’t even do it with proper opposition, you do it with passive opposition.

“In this moment, in this week was the first week where we managed to do it also using the physical adaptations and we work at the intensity we like to work at which is an intensity very, very high because this is the way we try to play either defensively or offensively.”
