Mourinho is perfectly entitled to comment on his depleted squad. Regular readers will be all too aware of my long standing mantra on injuries; namely that Tottenham never factor them in. Add to this numerous transfer windows where there was little or no activity whatsoever, and you have a scenario that no manager in the world would shine in.
I fancy Lamela this afternoon, the Argentinian has been directly involved in seven goals in his last six FA Cup starts (3 goals, 4 assists), scoring their second goal in the 2-1 replay win over Middlesbrough in the third round.
You can see all our goals so far in this season’s cup run here and I’d remind you that they are absolutely worth watching!
Lamela ATGS is @2/1 in most places.
