Tottenham coach José Mourinho is looking forward to Sunday’s game with Chelsea in the first division, at least in the sense that he thinks the rival host and his manager will play under pressure.

The Portuguese manager of the leading group pointed out that the large purchase of Chelsea in the summer transfer market has significantly increased the chances of a rival in London for the title. He had similar experiences when he was previously the coach of Chelsea, Real Madrid and Internazionale.
“When you count as a favorite, you know exactly why you are. You have to accept that, and you have to deal with that kind of pressure and responsibility. “ Said Mourinho. He added that his former clubs were ranked among the champions in the transfer market due to their strong politics.
“I also had to deal with that pressure. But now I don’t have to deal with it, but for others. “ – He said.
Chelsea spent more than £ 200 million this summer to buy Edouard Mendy, Tim Werner and Kai Havertz, boosting the chances of a London group led by Frank Lampard to win the championship.
Mourinho led Chelsea for six and a half years in two installments, in which Lampard was one of his key men. The latter – who won two championship titles and an FA Cup during this period – denied journalistic allegations that he was in a bad relationship with his former master.
“It’s always been a good relationship. When we lead competing big teams, it can affect our relationship. Not in a bad way. I have no problem with that ” Said Lampard.
Tottenham, who are in the standings for the first time since August 2014, will visit third-placed Chelsea on Sunday. Both guards are preparing for the showdown in excellent form, the home men have not been defeated in seven games and the guests in eight games, and the Spurs have won all four away games this season. Both teams are also in the forefront in terms of goals scored and few goals scored: Chelsea have 22-10 goals difference and Tottenham have 21-9 goals difference. The statistics promise many successes, with Chelsea having succeeded in the previous three PL games, with the Spurs only being able to win once in their last 34 appearances (plus 11 draws and 22 defeats) at Stamford Bridge. .
