Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge, Jose Mourinho has predicted Frank Lampard will use the same formation that helped Chelsea beat Tottenham 2-0 in December.

“They’ll play three at the back like in December,” Mourinho said, as he predicted the formation Chelsea will use on Saturday.

However, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has attempted to keep Mourinho guessing by insisting the Blues won’t necessary use three at the back as both games are different.

Lampard said: “It was pleasing on the day. And the way the players implement it. This is the best league in the world. You always try to prepare. Every game is different.

“It’s a different game to the one we took on at Tottenham. It doesn’t mean that we can just play the same way.”
