Chelsea host Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, and it’s a very huge game for two sides playing to finish in the top four.

Spurs were beaten in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 clash at the Tottenham Stadium, as RB Leipzig got a 1-0 victory away in London.

Jose Mourinho has now bemoaned his team’s ill luck due to injuries and lack of fitness, and the Portuguese complained bitterly about his squad after their defeat to Leipzig.

Speaking after the game, Mourinho admitted that his side is in trouble as he told Sky Sports: “You can tell me we had luck in some moments, but I disagree.

“What I’m worried about is not the 1-0, because that is an open result, we can go there and win the tie.

“What worries me is that these are our players for the next… I don’t know how many matches. We have to play in two days again.

“We could see Lucas absolutely dead, [Steven] Bergwijn absolutely dead, [Giovani] Lo Celso dead.

“We are really in trouble. If this was just for this game, I would say: ‘Okay no problem, 1-0, everything is open’. What worries me is that we have Premier League and FA Cup to play in too and that is our situation.

“I cannot be happier to have guys like them with the limitations we have.”

Mourinho then took a dig at the FA for giving his team an early kick-off on Saturday when Chelsea are well rested.

He added: “But here we go, and Chelsea drinking sparkling water with lemon and watching the game on TV. On Saturday morning, thank you very much for the choice, Saturday morning we are there again.”
