Paul Merson believes Jose Mourinho can lead Tottenham to PL title
Tottenham, after the opening day defeat to Everton, have recovered very strongly in the Premier League. Following the Lilywhites’ 1-0 win against West Bromwich Albion this past weekend, Tottenham currently sit second in the league standings. With 16 points from eight games, Spurs just a point below leaders Leicester City.
“Can Spurs go on and win the title? It’s not impossible and that’s because they’ve got a serial winner as a manager. They’ve got a chance because Mourinho is in charge and has won it before. He knows what it takes to get over the line.”
The Arsenal legend then went on to add that Spurs’ positive start to the season can be a good omen, considering how Mourinho’s title-winning sides in the past have begun their respective campaigns. (h/t Sky Sports)
“When Mourinho won the title at Chelsea, they always got off to a flyer. He’s the only manager I know who treats every game like it is the last of the season. Every point mounts up and Mourinho always flies out of the stalls in a title-winning year.”
