Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettuno has talked about how the Europa league and the premier league fixture is a problem.
Tottenham face Qarabag in Azerbaijan on Thursday and then face EPL rivals, Chelsea on Sunday.
Pochettino added: “Maybe we come back, straight back [after the Europa League game on Thursday], and we give the players the day off on Friday.
“Maybe you need to wait two hours at the airport and for us, it’s better to go straight after the game and get to England as soon as possible, and give maybe Friday off for recovery.”
Chelsea also face a midweek trip across Europe, with Jose Mourinho’s men to meet Israeli giants Maccabi Tel-Aviv in the Champions League on Tuesday.
“It’s the always the same problem. All the clubs in the Premier League at the beginning of the season want to play on TV because it’s a business,” Pochettino said.
“But when the moment comes to play we complain. The balance is difficult.”
