Jose Mourinho tries to get in Frank Lampard’s head by revealing he ALREADY KNOWS Chelsea team for Tottenham clash
Feb. 22, 2020
Jose Mourinho has revealed he already knows the team Frank Lampard will pick when Tottenham visit Chelsea on Saturday.
The former Blues boss returns to Stamford Bridge as manager of their arch rivals – live on talkSPORT – in a clash which could have huge ramifications for Champions League qualification.
Lampard will know all about Mourinho’s mind games from his time as a player under the Portuguese, like when he correctly predicted Barcelona’s team before a Champions League clash in 2005.
And the Spurs boss has been up to his usual tricks, claiming an unknown informant has told him how Chelsea will line-up on Saturday.
He said: “Tomorrow the same. I was told the same. I was told they were back to a back five which is what they normally do when their results are not the best.

“They did that when they went to Lille, they did that when they came to us, a system they played for a few of us, and are very comfortable with.
“It is a system very adapted to their routine and the qualities of their players, but they have so many options that they can do what the manager decides to do.”
Lampard’s Chelsea took Mourinho’s Spurs by surprise in December, switching to a back five and securing a comfortable 2-0 victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Asked whether Lampard will change his selection given Mourinho’s information, the Spurs boss said: “Will he go with the team as is? Of course. Of course.”
And, like any good journalist, Mourinho refused to reveal how he came about this golden nugget of knowledge.
Pressed on how he found out, he told the reporters at his press conference on Friday: “The same way you have a lot of news and you don’t tell the sources.”
Mourinho was in a jovial mood throughout his press conference , which was briefly interrupted when he joined in the cheers of a group of youths outside.
