Tottenham boss Mourinho: Another Chelsea 'source' this season...?

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho insists he has no inside knowledge of Chelsea plans for this weekend's derby.

Last season, the Portuguese claimed that a "source" at the Blues had given him knowledge of Frank Lampard's team selection.

Spurs went on to lose the match 2-1, but returning to west London on Sunday for the first time since that encounter, Mourinho was more circumspect about his source when asked if he had any more trade secrets this time round.

"Not yet, and probably not," he said. "But with such an amazing squad, you know, to play [Reece] James or [Cesar] Azpilicueta, to play [Ben] Chilwell, [Marcos] Alonso or Emerson.

"To play [Edouard] Mendy, or to play the most expensive goalkeeper of the history of the Premier League.

"Chelsea has an amazing squad, so I'm not even worried about who is going to play because they only have very good players."
