“We go to win” – Jose Mourinho gives his verdict on Tottenham title chances

Jose Mourinho dismisses Tottenham Hotspur title talk

Speaking after the hard-fought win over Burnley at Turf Moor, Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho played down the talk of his side being title contenders. This is according to a report by Football.london.

Fans would however be forgiven for thinking otherwise. Winning when not at your best is a testament to strong mentality and Spurs showcased just that.

More so, the win takes us to within two points off the top. Despite being in touching distance, Mourinho is not getting ahead of himself.

“I will never consider ourselves title contenders.”

Rather than talk up his team’s chances, the Portuguese tactician is taking it one game at a time. He believes the team should focus on a win in every game.

“I assume that every match we play – doesn’t matter where or against who – we go to win.”

Injuries and a series of surprising results have seen the season’s title prediction go for a toss. While the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City have looked far from their best, Mourinho is right to not demand the spotlight for his team.

While we have been scintillating in attack, the team is still some way away from being at its best. The capitulation against West Ham United clearly showed we still have to improve before challenging for the top.

From the looks of it, Liverpool could still count themselves as title favourites. However, Mourinho is a serial winner who knows how to stop the opposition in their tracks. He has done that to Liverpool before and will hopefully do so again this season.

Can we get the better of Liverpool?

Mourinho is right to play it cool. We should rather focus on our results and keep winning rather than take centre stage.

While Mourinho may be seeking to play down pressure by dismissing our chances, it will come as no surprise if he does indeed lead us to the title. After all, there is just one ‘special one’ in the whole league.
