Jose Mourinho rates Tottenhams title chances as Spurs go top with West Brom win – Mirror Online

Jose Mourinho is refusing to get carried away despite Tottenham moving to the top of the Premier League table after a 1-0 win over West Brom.

Harry Kane struck his 150th Premier League goal two minutes from time to send Spurs to the summit as they continued their 100 per cent away record this season.

It was his 201st goal for Spurs and his 13th of the campaign and – even though they can be dislodged in a matter of hours – it will give his side belief that they can challenge for the title this season.

But speaking at full-time Mourinho insisted he and his side would be taking it one game at a time.

“When a team is champion, or plays for the title, there is always a direct relation to your direct opponents,” he said.

“I could say that this team could be champions in many European countries. It’s so difficult in the Premier League though. There are so many good clubs.”

Spurs would be pushed back down the table if either Leicester or Liverpool triumph in their games on Sunday afternoon.

But Mourinho says at the moment he is only focused on his own side and their performances.

“You can have a good season and still not be champions. We’ll just try to win,” he added.

“I promise you I’m not bothered about Leicester vs Wolves or City vs Liverpool. I just want us to win games and then we’ll see where we are.”

Spurs have a potentially season-defining run of fixtures coming up after the international break, and they face Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal in their next three Premier League games.

Kane, who is now joint-ninth on the all-time Premier League top scorers list, tweeted after full-time: “To win and score my 150th Premier League goal… perfect afternoon.”
