Although Harry Kane and Son Heung-min are sidelined because of long-term hamstring and elbow injuries, the Chelsea head coach is still wary of their cross-town rivals ahead of a game that could prove crucial to deciding who qualifies for next season’s Champions League

Asked if Jose Mourinho will have a trick up his sleeve with no strikers in his squad, Lampard said: “He has got attacking players, let’s get it right. Dele Alli for me his best season at Tottenham was playing up with Harry Kane at times.

“Lucas Moura scored a hat-trick in the Champions League semi-final last year and is an incredible talent on the ball. There are attacking players.

“Will Jose Mourinho set his team up smartly? Yes because he is a fantastic manager. They have attacking players who can give us problems.”

Lampard also rejected the idea that it is a good time to face Spurs because of their injury worries. Chelsea also go into the game with key players ruled out, while Spurs have been in better recent form.

“No I don’t think so,” Lampard added. “I think with Tottenham, they are on a good run of form.

“Clearly an incredible player like Harry Kane is a miss and now Son is a miss, but with Harry Kane it always amazed me the stats when [Mauricio] Pochettino was manager and Harry Kane was injured a few times.

“They remained a force because they had players that could fill in. When you are talking about players like Dele Alli, whose game is to arrive from slightly behind and break lines consistently, Lucas Moura is similar and he has qualities, [Steven] Bergwijn has come in and has those similar qualities.

“I have watched a lot of them recently and they are a threat. This is a London derby against Tottenham, I think whatever team they put out will always be a threat in this type of game.”
