Eric Dier bathroom break, Frank Lampard spat

Posted on

Drama seems to follow José Mourinho wherever he goes, and there was certainly no shortage of it from Tottenham Hotspur’s well-traveled manager in Spurs’ League Cup win over London rival Chelsea on Tuesday.

Chelsea scored first, with high-priced forward Timo Werner notching his first goal for the Blues with a blistering strike into the bottom corner.

Not long after that, things began to get weird on the touchline. Mourinho apparently took issue with Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, his former captain when he led the Blues to consecutive Premier League titles in the mid-2000s. Per reports on the ground, the older coach was upset that Lampard became more vocal after the visitors took the lead.

The EFL Cup showdown between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday produced everything you could imagine. From goals to a manager chasing a player into the locker room who went on a mid-game bathroom break. 

The Blues took the lead through Timo Werner, but a late goal from Tottenham’s Erik Lamela forced penalty kicks at 1-1, with Spurs advancing 5-4 from the spot after Mason Mount’s spot kick went wide of the goal to seal the match.
