Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has revealed the six teams he thinks can win the Premier League this season. Spurs briefly went top of the table on Sunday after their win over West Brom, before they were replaced by Leicester.

The Portuguese appeared to rule his side out of the race by naming six teams he thinks are the most likely to go all the way.

“I would say that this team could be champion in many European countries,” Mourinho said. “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.”
