Chelsea boss Mourinho furious over Arsenal advantage for Cup clash

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has hit out at the Capital One Cup draw against Arsenal.

Arsenal have an extra day of recovery ahead of tomorrow night's clash.

Mourinho said: "We are going to give the game that the people put the game on Tuesday want. If they want a big game, we cannot give a big game. If they want the players that were playing today, we cannot give them that.

He added: "If they want Arsenal to win a trophy, that's a help, because if they want a big game between two big teams in London they should put the game on Wednesday and not on Tuesday. I'm not going to give them that.

"They played at 1230 yesterday, so two and a half days to rest and prepare. So yes, I hope they all enjoy it. We are going to try and do our job, and we will do our job the best we can."

Mourinho said he would not take up the issue with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, but added: "We have no problems, no problems. Unless you tell me that he had an influence on this..."
