Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho not looking at PL table as the race for top-four heats up
Following a defeat to West Ham United towards the end of last month, it seemed like Tottenham were pretty much out of the reckoning for a top-four finish. However, back-to-back wins against Burnley and Fulham have brought Mourinho’s side back into the mix.
Matters have been helped by the fact that results elsewhere have gone Tottenham’s way as well, with the likes of West Ham United and Liverpool dropping points. As things stand, Spurs are eighth in the table, just five points below Chelsea in fourth, that too with a game in hand.
Mourinho, however, has claimed that he does not want to look at the table. Instead, the Portuguese tactician wants to focus on winning the upcoming matches.
“I don’t want to look at the table. I want to win matches and especially for us, a team in two competitions, the next match is Premier League but then the next one is Europa League. I don’t want to look too much to the table, I don’t want to see anything good or bad about that.
“I just want to try to win matches and that’s what we did today and of course another one is coming fast on Sunday. We go again and we try again.”

Things will continue to get tricky for Tottenham as the next two league games see us take on Crystal Palace and Arsenal in London derbies while also facing Dinamo Zagreb in Europe amidst this.
With three wins in three games in all competitions, it is important that the team stays focused and builds some steam as the business end of the campaign fast approaches.
