Jose Mourinho has named the six teams he thinks can win the Premier League this season. According to Mourinho, his former club Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester are potential champions.
Mourinho did not include his current side in the list, despite them briefly going top of the table over the weekend. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men claimed a much-needed 3-1 win at Everton on Saturday, which leaves them eight points off top spot, with a game in hand.
Appearing to rule his own side out of the race, Mourinho said: “I would say that this team (Tottenham) could be champion in many European countries. The Premier League is the most difficult one to be, because in the Premier League you can do a good season, can have lots of points, but in the end… Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea, Man United, Leicester, Arsenal.
“So you can have a good season and not be champion. So what can we do? We go match after match. We try to win, we don’t care about the others. I promise you I’m not worried about Leicester v Wolves, or City v Liverpool. If Liverpool wins, it is because City loses points. If Leicester wins, it is because Wolves dropped points. So I don’t care, I just want the team to play match after match, and then at the end of the season let’s see where we are.”
