Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has revealed the six clubs that can win the Premier League title this campaign.
Spurs briefly went top of the league table on Sunday after their 1-0 win over West Brom, before they were soon replaced by Leicester City who beat Wolves 1-0 through a penalty by Jamie Vardy.
Mourinho’s side have lost just one game this season, with many considering the London team as serious title contenders.
But, the Portuguese coach appeared to rule his side out of the title race, by naming six clubs he thinks are the most likely to go all the way.
“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,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.

Since surrendering a three-goal lead to West Ham last month, Spurs are yet to drop a point in the Premier League again. And Mourinho says that his team have learnt from their past mistakes.
“I said that we were speaking a lot about it and working a lot about that situation. I am not going to say we are not going to lose matches or lose points in the last minutes, it can happen to anyone,” Mourinho said.
“We felt the pain against West Ham and since then strategically the team is behaving in a different way.
“The two clean sheets at Burnley and this afternoon showed the lesson – a team in the last five minutes that was very solid, it looked like the pain made a positive effort and the team improved after that.”
