Jose Mourinho has expressed his disappointment at the scheduling of Tottenham’s clash against Chelsea this weekend.
Spurs will travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday to take on the Blues in what will be a crucial game in the race for the fourth spot, with just a point separating the two sides.
However, Mourinho is no fan of the fact that the game has been scheduled to kick off early at 12.30 pm.
While Spurs have just two days to prepare for the all-important London derby, Frank Lampard’s side will have double the amount of time as they were last in action against Manchester United on Monday night.
Here’s what the Spurs boss had to say about the scheduling of the game during his post-match press conference following the 1-0 defeat to Leipzig.

While having two fewer days to prepare for a game like this is in itself a major disadvantage, our injury situation puts us in an even more perilous position. Jose has no choice but to play more or less the same eleven that started against Leipzig as there are limited options to rotate.
