“The most difficult one” – Mourinho plays down Tottenham title talks with a clever claim

Jose Mourinho has his say on Tottenham’s chances of Premier League title

Speaking after Tottenham Hotspur’s game against West Bromwich Albion (h/t Sky Sports), manager Jose Mourinho has reiterated that the Premier League is the most difficult to win, claiming that his team could be ‘champions in other countries’.

Tottenham defeated West Brom 1-0 at the Hawthorns on Sunday afternoon, courtesy of a late header from star striker Harry Kane. The win took us to the top of the Premier League table, albeit briefly, as Leicester City’s win against Wolves, saw them move to the perch.

As things stand, heading into the international break, Tottenham are second in the standings, with 17 points from 8 matches – just one below the Foxes. Spurs are undefeated in the league since the opening day loss to Everton, leading to talks of a potential title tilt by Mourinho and his boys.

The Portuguese tactician, however, has quashed those talks, admitting his team could be champions in any other league in Europe but not in England, owing to the sheer competition. (h/t Sky Sports)

“I would say that this team could be champions in many European countries. In the Premier League, it is the most difficult one to be [champions].

“You can do a good season, you can have a lot of points but in the end, you know – Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea, Man United, Leicester, Arsenal – you can have a good season and not be champions.”

Mourinho is known to be the master of mind games. By saying that, he has made sure there’s no undue pressure on his players, while adding some on his opponents as well. It is too early to call favourites for the title. But if we keep up racking points like this, we’ll surely be close to the top come May.
