Tottenham’s Jose Mourinho begins mind games with Thomas Tuchel: ‘I don’t think it’s very difficult to coach at Chelsea’

Tottenham vs Chelsea

The midweek Premier League action will draw to a close later this evening.

The final tie of this game week will see two of London’s premier clubs face off as Tottenham play host to Chelsea.

The Blues head into the clash in decent form under their new boss, Thomas Tuchel.

The German has guided the Londoners to four points in his opening two matches, in which Chelsea didn’t concede a single goal.

However, Chelsea still remain six points off the top four, meaning they cannot afford any slip-ups as we enter the business end of the season.

Spurs, meanwhile, have already begun to feel the effects of losing Harry Kane, with Jose Mourinho’s men losing 1-0 to relegation-battling Brighton last time out.

Despite their recent decline, the Lilywhites are still above Chelsea on goal difference with a game in hand.

Jose Mourinho on coaching at Chelsea

Ahead of the tie, Jose Mourinho appears to have begun to play mind games with Tuchel.

The Portuguese had two successful spells at Chelsea, which saw him clinch three league titles, and FA Cup and three League Cups.

And with Tuchel now at the helm, Mourinho has voiced the opinion that it is not difficult to be a coach at Chelsea:

“I don’t think it’s very difficult to coach at Chelsea because I was champion three times, Carlo Ancelotti was champion, Antonio Conte was champion.

“It cannot be very, very difficult because we won titles there. Chelsea always have great players and great squads and good coaches are happy to work with these clubs and with players who give you a very good opportunity to be successful and win titles.

“In my case, I was there in two different periods and I was champion in two different periods.”
