Lampard believes Jose Mourinho has exaggerated his team’s injury crisis

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has accused his former boss, Jose Mourinho of overexaggerating Tottenham’s injury crisis, according to Evening Standard.

Tottenham are without Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, leaving Mourinho with a lack of attacking options. Powerhouse midfielder Moussa Sissoko is also injured while Erik Lamela has just returned from injury.

Mourinho is dependent on Lucas Moura to play up front in the absence of his preferred players. Troy Parrott is the only fit striker in the squad but the Spurs boss is reluctant to use him.

Lampard feels that his former boss is making a meal of the issue. The Blues boss reckons that although Spurs are missing Kane and Son, there is no dearth of attacking talent left at Mourinho’s disposal.

“Jose he has got attacking players, let’s get it right”

The Chelsea manager pointed towards the goalscoring prowess of Dele Alli while also mentioning Moura’s famous hat-trick at Ajax to show that there is no lack of options available. This was the third meeting between both managers with Mourinho yet to take anything off Lampard.
