I hope they care about them and protect them because Tottenham players this week have an incredible load of minutes and work and it's very, very, very, very dangerous.

Mourinho raced down the tunnel after Dier was forced to leave the field during the second half to go to the toilet.

'The problem is it was not a pee,' Mourinho laughed. 'For him to leave the pitch you can imagine what happened. I knew it and I was just pushing him to come back as soon as possible.

'It is the consequence of something not human that he did to play two matches completely dehydrated, tired, no energy in the muscles, completely dead. Of course he is not playing on Thursday because I would definitely kill him.'

Mourinho who managed Lampard at Chelsea said: 'With Frank the most important thing are my feelings to him are more important than any words that we exchange. He gave me everything he had as a player so I never forget that.

'My feelings will always be what I owe him as a player, friend and professional.

I've got a huge amount of respect for Jose no matter what we say on the touchline. I think he probably was feeling the sense of the first half and how it was but all was very well at the end of the game. That will never change.'
