Alex Pritchard is hoping that he can do his parent club Tottenham Hotspur a huge favour by helping Swindon Town eliminate Chelsea from the Capital One Cup.
Pritchard admits he feels right at home in the Swindon changing room this season and it is easy to understand why; the young midfielder is one of a number of current and former Tottenham players currently plying their trade at the League One club.
Fellow midfielder Ryan Mason and defender Grant Hall are both on loan from Tottenham, while Australian youngster Massimo Luongo left Spurs in the summer to sign a permanent deal with Swindon.
With so many connections to Tottenham, the third round tie against Chelsea in the Capital One Cup has taken on even more importance as Pritchard is determined to help Swindon inflict another defeat on Chelsea.
Mourinho has already come under pressure early into his new reign after suffering a first Premier League defeat to Everton, before the shock home loss to Basel in the Champions League.
Swindon will be huge underdogs going into the game against the Blues but Pritchard is confident that they can cause another upset after knocking out QPR in the last round.
"There are so many players from Spurs here that it does feel like home. It really helps you settle in," Pritchard told the Daily Express. "The boss at Spurs just told me to go away and get games under my belt and get some more experience, and that is what I am doing.
"This is a massive game for us, but we have shown by beating QPR that we can cause an upset. We went over there and played good football and we really beat them up.
"We know Chelsea will be another level. It is a massive game for this club. But we will go into it with the right attitude.
"We have nothing to lose, no one is expecting us to win. We have to keep the ball, keep playing and hopefully create chances and score some goals.
"It doesn't matter if it is Juan Mata or David Luiz, whoever plays they are going to be quality players. And we have to be right on our game."
With Chelsea's next league game being against Tottenham, Pritchard will hope he can help his parent club by producing a massive upset and heaping more misery on Mourinho.
