Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho is expecting to face a very difficult side on Thursday night, when Spurs welcome Chelsea to the Tottenham Stadium.

New Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel will be in charge of Chelsea for the third time this season, but Mourinho is expecting to face a difficult Chelsea team.

According to Mourinho, the sacking of Frank Lampard doesn’t mean Chelsea will be weakened, as it’s the same quality players.

“Chelsea is Chelsea,” Mourinho said at his pre-match press conference.

“They change the coach but they didn’t change the players. The players are very good and there is great depth.

“They had a good coach in Frank [Lampard] that was doing good work. They have a good coach now in [Thomas] Tuchel despite coming from a league you cannot compare with the Premier League.

“But he is used to working with players of high calibre and leading dressing rooms with important players.”
