Chelsea boss Mourinho angry over Spurs match timing

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is angry over the timing of the derby against Tottenham.

Mourinho fears his team are at another disadvantage with Saturday's match kicking off at 5.30pm, allowing it to be screened on Sky Sports.

He told Chelsea TV: "It is harder for them [the players] than for me, I sit on the bench. This week is going to be even worse [than last].

"[The players are travelling to] South Africa, United States, Portugal for others. Okay, some England players will be at Wembley but it is still a match on Wednesday and we play on Saturday, which I don't understand.

"We don't play Champions League next week and I don't understand why we don't play on Sunday. I want somebody to tell me that we play Saturday because of this and this and this but nobody tells me.

"Clearly, I don't understand why we don't play Tottenham on Sunday. Tottenham have a Europa League match on the [following] Thursday so they don't need to play on Saturday. They also have a few players in the national teams, not just us."
