Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is annoyed that their rearranged fixture with Leicester City has been scheduled for so late in the season.
The Premier League leaders' trip to the King Power Stadium has been moved to April 29 after the original game was postponed due to Chelsea's progress to last Sunday's League Cup final, where they beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0.
While Mourinho admits that a weekend off will do his "tired" players the world of good ahead of their Champions League return leg against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, he would rather have had the opportunity to put more points on the board in the title race.
"It is not a good thing that we play Leicester in two months," the Portuguese told reporters. "That's not a good thing - for someone in the title race to have played one match less. I would prefer to play Leicester.
"But we deserved two days off. The people in the dressing room are tired."
Spurs played their game in hand this afternoon as they beat London rivals Queens Park Rangers 2-1 at Loftus Road.
