Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has hit back at Jose Mourinho’s claims that Tottenham have one of the worst injury crises in European football.

According to Lampard, Chelsea’s injury crisis is worse than Tottenham’s.

“He has got attacking players, let’s get it right,” said Lampard.

“Dele Alli, for me, his best season at Tottenham was playing up with Harry Kane at times.

“Lucas Moura scored a hat-trick in the Champions League semi-final last year and is an incredible talent on the ball. There are attacking players.

“I am not sure many teams in the Premier League have had our injuries. We had huge ones at the start of the season, big ones now in the season. Major major players for us.

“N’Golo Kante has played 50 per cent of the games when he has been basically a regular starter for the last four years in the Premier League. Ruben, as I say, hasn’t kicked a ball yet.

“Harry Kane is a miss, Son is a miss. They have had injuries in the past but they have players who can fill in.”
