Lampard refuses to be fooled by Mourinho’s claim Spurs are firing blanks

first_imgJOSE MOURINHO’S claim Tottenham are firing blanks is not fooling Frank Lampard.Mourinho moaned managing without crocked strikers Harry Kane and Son Heung-min was like fighting “with a gun without bullets” after Wednesday’s toothless 1-0 defeat to RB Leipzig.3 Frank Lampard is not falling for Jose Mourinho’s mind gamesCredit: Getty Images – GettyBut Chelsea chief Lamps is not having any of his old boss’ mind games ahead of Spurs’ visit to Stamford Bridge in today’s early kick-off.He said: “He has got attacking players, let’s get it right.“Dele Alli’s best season at Tottenham was playing up with Harry Kane at times. Lucas Moura scored a hat-trick in the Champions League semi-final last year and is an incredible talent.“I watched the interview after the Leipzig defeat and they’re always interesting.“I understand his feelings, because you want all your top players fit. But it doesn’t make me think they’re any weaker, whatever Jose says.”CHELSEA NEWS LIVE: Follow for all the latest on the Blues3 Spurs and Chelsea have both been hit by injuries for the game at Stamford BridgeCredit: Rex FeaturesLampard also pointed to his own injury problems, claiming few other Premier League bosses have had it so tough this term.The likes of Eddie Howe, Roy Hodgson and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may dispute that, but it is true the Blues boss has had a number of stars on the  treatment table at various times.England star Ruben Loftus-Cheek has missed the entire campaign with a ruptured Achilles but could return to the bench today.Andreas Christensen will wear a mask fitted in Milan this week to protect his broken nose if he plays.But N’Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic are out with adductor injuries, while Tammy Abraham may not start having trained only at “70 per cent” due to an ankle issue.Lampard added: “I am not sure many teams in the Premier League have had our injuries. We had huge ones at the start of the season, big ones now in the season.“N’Golo Kante has played 50 per cent of the games when he has been basically a regular starter for the last four years in the Premier League.“Ruben hasn’t kicked a ball yet. We’ve got a lot and I think the fans respect that.”Lampard knows the pressure is on him after Monday night’s 2-0 defeat by Manchester United cut Chelsea’s advantage to fifth-placed Spurs to only one point.Supporters may be willing to give him more time than most managers given his legendary player status — but that slack will not last forever.The United loss was the fifth home reverse in the league this term and left Lampard struggling to sleep.Yet he insists he is thriving on the pressure to perform — just as he did as a player.Lampard, 41, even claimed to have ENJOYED this week as he embraces the challenge.MAKE YOUR DEBUT Bet £5 get £20 in free bets for new customers at Ladbrokes3 Lampard may decide to recall Kepa ArrizabalagaCredit: Getty ImagesHe said: “Maybe expectations did go up. But that’s a good thing and that’s normal. That’s human nature.“I thrived on pressure as a player and thrive on it as a manager. I have enjoyed this week.“We lost to Manchester United, I hated the fact we lost and it was a difficult night’s sleep.“But waking up the next day I thought this is a great challenge for us.”It remains to be seen if keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga will return to the starting line-up after being axed for the last two games in favour of  veteran Willy Caballero.But Lampard insisted he was not on a collision course with his bosses over the £71.6million keeper.Latest Chelsea newsLive Blogblues newsChelsea news LIVE – Latest updates from Stamford BridgeGossipGOING DUTCHChelsea ‘to grab Mbuyamba on free deal’ with defender set to leave BarcelonaCOURT ORDERKante ‘ordered to appear in court’ in £3.4m legal battle with former agentBRIDGE OF SIGHSChelsea stars ‘bored’ and Hazard suffered under Sarri, says ex-No2 ZolaGossipBERN IT UPMan Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea on alert after Bernardeschi reveals Prem plansLive BlogBLUES NEWSChelsea news LIVE: Latest updates and transfer gossip from Stamford BridgeHe added: “I am absolutely together with the board.
