With the way he's approached the Europa Cup so far, I think that is his priority this season
Report betting_masta September 29, 2020 2:53 PM BST
he said it himself yesterday, europa is the priority. the money for EFL cup is a disgrace, europa is actually good money. spurs are a money-making business so they have every right to target thursday's game. i expect a largely 2nd string spurs 11 against chelsea

He said in the presser (these are always on Youtube) that he would like to compete in the Carabao Cup but can't.
The odds say that Europa League is his best chance of a trophy this season and he won that before with worse squads than than this.

Spurs (3-5-2)
Lloris
Dier, Alderweireld, Tanganga
Aurier, Gedson, Ndombelle, Sissoko, Reguilon
Bergwijn, Lamela

odd shape, looks like a 3-5-2, that's actually ok. both wing backs are strong players. Front two is unusual. Midfield solid. Interesting to see Reguilon, think he'll be a real asset

Chelsea (4-2-3-1)
Mendy
Azpilicueta, Zouma, Tomori, Chilwell
Jorginho, Kovacic
Hudson Odoi, Mount, Werner
Giroud

well, very solid team, clearly stronger than Spurs. two debutants.

Chelsea will control it, Spurs may struggle to create chances with that midfield setup. wing backs have a vital role for Spurs, but no recognised striker will hurt them.

I think if you asked Dele if he wants to leave Spurs he'd say no. especially to go abroad. But it's clearly not working for him at Spurs under JM. Spurs won't want to loan him out to another PL club so it would be a loan abroad. another "wasted" English talent?

He was losing it before Mourinho came along. Perhaps a change of scenery will do him good. I'd favour a loan deal abroad.

The Spurs team tonite is certainly no great shakes for sure. It seems to me that Chelsea are on the drift as they are a lot weaker too with their 8 changes, while the Spurs team is a bit stronger than envisaged (nothing like the youth teams that Liverpool played against Villa, Everton and Shrewsbury in the cups last season.)

I note there are a few on this forum moaning about Spurs having to play a match on Tuesday AND then again on Thursday.

No surprise that some of these were heavy critics of Liverpool when we had TWO fixtures to play in 24 hours in different continents!

before being subsequently ordered by the FA to play a cup tie during our assigned two week winter break!

Some on here have short memories indeed....................

Of course Mourinho wants to win, and the players want to win, but it's a compromised lineup. Spurs are basically saying to Chelsea "try and break us down", play rope a dope, if it's still 0-0 on 70 they bring on Kane, Moura, and go for it.

The prize money for EFL cup is so bad, the winners only get £100,000, whereas Europa League gives you millions even just in the group stages, then there's millions more should you qualify into knockouts. EFL is a path into Europe but you'd have to win it outright. Spurs are much better focusing on Europa League and the Premier League. You get more money in the Preliminary rounds of Europa league than you do for winning the EFL cup. If it didn't have a European place attached to it, it would be almost worthless

the problem with signing Cavani is that's a very expensive bench-warmer who's past his peak. This is the Premier League not the MLS. it's like when Falcao came to the Premier League, very similar players and it didn't work out. I wouldn't do it. Spurs have enough good players to compete as they are. With the state of finances as they are in English football right now Cavani just seems like another waste of money

Lampard maybe should have stayed at Derby another season in hindsight, he was tactically inept in that season but still got them to Wembley, if he'd stayed another season he might have improved that side of his coaching

He doesn't have it in him if he's not learning by now though, top coaches will have him for dinner
