Frank Lampard claims Jose Mourinho is exaggerating Tottenham injury crisis

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has claimed Jose Mourinho is exaggerating Tottenham's injury crisis.

Lampard will come up against his former Chelsea manager Mourinho on Saturday, fresh from the Spurs boss lamenting his lengthy injury list in midweek.

Mourinho likened his depleted forward line to "a gun with no bullets" in the wake of Wednesday's 1-0 home Champions League loss to RB Leipzig.

But Lampard has moved to downplay the significance of Tottenham's injuries, ahead of the Stamford Bridge battle.

"He has got attacking players, let's get it right," said Lampard.

"Dele Alli in his best season at Tottenham was playing up alongside Harry Kane. And Lucas Moura scored a hat-trick in a Champions League semi-final last year."

Lampard also insisted there is no tension with Chelsea's board over him dropping Spain goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The Spanish stopper commanded a world-record transfer fee for a goalkeeper when he joined Chelsea for £72million in August 2018.

The 25-year-old has fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge though, with veteran Willy Caballero stepping up for the last two Premier League matches.

But now Lampard has insisted he is under no pressure to select the big-money signing.
