Bridge: Creativity coming through Kane
Harry Kane is the driving force behind Spurs’ creativity, according to Michael Bridge
“The key here is Mourinho has a squad where there seems to be two players for every position, there seems to be real competition. Serge Aurier is now at right back, he’s got Matt Doherty too. He’s up against him and there’s competition in the squad. Hojbjerg has been a huge addition to that midfield doing the dirty jobs well so there seems to be a change around the place and full credit has to go to the manager.
“I’m sure Mourinho will play it down in terms of the significance of the game, but mark my words, this is a massive game on a personal note and for the football club. Frank Lampard said before his Champions League game that he was already thinking about the game on Sunday. It’s a big derby in its own right, there’s a lot of history between the clubs, obviously there won’t be any fans but Lampard will want to win this game as well. There’s no doubt in my mind that after the Man City game, Jose would have been planning the Chelsea match as well.
