They fought to finish as high as possible which translates to more money from the premier league. If that match was in the Champions League or Spurs were not a title contender, you can bet your arse they would have gone out, full throttle(doesnt mean they wouldn't have lost)
Bottom line is the Europa League is a second rate tournament that's difficult to win and some teams would rather fight for the title than risk losing it all by trying to win everything. As strong as Chelsea were when they won it, their league form suffered the consequences.

Barcelona don't hold the monopoly over out playing opponents. Even if Spurs had used a full strength team, they could still have been outplayed and lost. They did what they thought was best for themselves and we are yet to know the outcome. They don't have to play by every other person's rules. I'm sure they'd rather finish second in the premiership and qualify for the Champions League than reach the semi of the Europa League and crash out and then miss out of the top 4

Anyway, not sure what Spurs were thinking. Resting players for Aston Villa? THat's not a credible excuse.

Oh come on Hans, Premiership v the Europa League???????? It's a no-brainer son. They've already qualified for the CL so that losers cup doesn't have a prayer

It's embarrassing because a team with the resources of Spurs has to be capable of competing in 2 competitions. They're out of the cups anyway (exited league cup in September).

Do you think Dortmund are not playing for the title? They're 5 points behind us too, just like Spurs against Leicester. They can't afford to drop any points at all if they want to retain the chance to catch us if we slip.

Dortmund had us last weekend (incredible fast and tough game), have Mainz next weekend who are one of the in-form teams in BuLi right now (they beat us the game before). Why can they manage to take the game seriously?

It's embarrassing that English clubs would paint themselves as victims of tough competition in order to explain why they lose against teams from other leagues.

It's ridiculous to suggest they could not afford to rest a couple of key player against Aston Villa, of all teams, on the weekend instead in a European knockout match against a top side.

I mean I don't deny every PL game is tough (as is every game in BuLi), especially this season, but there's arguably ONE EXCEPTION - VILLA who are just absolutely terrible and weak lol.

And I would argue it#s counterproductive to 'prioritize' like that, even mentally. It's not a competitive mentality, and it's not a winner's mindset.

Watch Spurs drop out of top 4 too in the coming weeks.

Did you REALLY say every game is tough in the Bundesliga mate? Plus no-one gives a fuck about the Europa League
If you didn't see it with your own eyes, and hear it with your own ears. Don't invent it with your small mind or share it with your big gob!

Very well put mate. The other point regarding Chelsea's win is Benitez was willing to sacrifice Chelsea's league position in order to add to his CV.

Thats just an excuse that only fans of English clubs use instead of admitting lack of quality they still live in 2005-2010 era....

My point was Benitez WON the trophy while a year later Mourinho sacfrificed league title in attempt to become first coach to win CL with 3 clubs and he failed like an idiot that he is.
