‘At our limits’ – Mourinho looks ahead to four big matches in just ten days

Tottenham have enjoyed a much-needed rest period this week between their matches against Chelsea and Wolves in the Premier League.

Spurs were last in action on Saturday afternoon and do not play again until Sunday, giving them over seven days rest in between.

However, the clash against Wolves marks the start of a gruelling ten-day run of fixtures across three different competitions and against four different teams.

Spurs play Wolves at home on March 1 in the Premier League, followed by Norwich City in the FA Cup just three days later. Three more days after that, it’s Burnley away in the Premier League, followed by RB Leipzig away on March 10.

This is the last thing Tottenham need with an already dwindling squad, as Harry Kane, Heung-min Son, Moussa Sissoko, and more all remain out injured.

Jose Mourinho claims that it will be difficult for his side as they are at their limits, but they must first concentrate on Wolves this weekend.

He said (Football London): “Yeah, it’s a big week. Last week we felt very difficult because we had to play three matches in a row. Of course, our squad in this moment is a squad with some difficulties, especially we are not in condition to make rotations and rest players and be stronger in some matches than others.

“In this moment we are what we are, we have 16/17 players who are always selected for matches.

“So it’s going to be hard. I can imagine when we reach the fourth match of this 10 days and the fourth match will be a knockout one, even with possible extra-time to be played, I think we are going to arrive there at our limits. Let’s not think about it though. Let’s think about Wolves.

“At the Wolves game, we arrive in a good condition after a good week in which we manage to rest and to work really hard and now to be waiting for the game.”
