What they said
Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho: "We have a game on Thursday that gives us not as much money as the Champions League, but the group phase of the Europa League gives us a certain amount that for a club like us is very important.
"It’s a competition with a possible group phase that gives us a good chance to go through to the next knockout stage, so this game on Thursday is very important for us."
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard: "Yeah, I mean, I know that, and I know it’s a busy time for Tottenham because of the Europa League.
"It’s a busy time for us all. They had a free mid-week last week, we didn’t.
"I know they have a busy week this week. But when I analyse Tottenham and know the squad they have, and analyse what might be a team that maybe didn’t play 90 minutes pretty much yesterday.
"They have a fantastic squad, so I feel that any squad Jose will put out can be very strong."
