Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur host Frank Lampard’s Chelsea on Sunday in a game Chelsea must not lose.

According to Paul Merson, Mourinho will outsmart Lampard on Sunday because Lampard is naive as shown in the 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth.

Merson told Daily Star: “Facing Jose Mourinho is an absolute nightmare for Frank Lampard right now.

“A few weeks ago, Chelsea were flying and looked young and vibrant. But experience is priceless and Frank has shown he lacks it recently.

“The Bournemouth game was a bad day at the office. An experienced manager would have realised that and made sure they didn’t lose.

“But what does he do? He goes gung ho, puts two up front, and they lose the game. Brave or naïve? Naïve for me.

“If Chelsea lose to Tottenham they will probably be out of the top four, and I really can’t see them getting back in it that easily if that happens.

“That’s why I think this game is a nightmare for Frank because he will be compared with Mourinho, who has all the experience in the world.

“Mourinho is one of the greatest managers of all time in my opinion. He has nothing to prove. But he will love it if he can beat Chelsea.

“And if he does, it will just show that experience is priceless.”
