Mourinho plays down Tottenham’s chances of winning EPL title, names biggest contenders

Tottenham Hotspur, Jose Mourinho, has insisted his team is not equipped to win the title despite moving back to the top of the Premier League.

Mourinho, speaking after Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Chelsea, branded Spurs as “ponies” in the championship race.

When Mourinho managed the Blues in 2014, he famously described his side as a “little horse” in the title race.

And despite Tottenham starting their second successive week at the top of the table, the Portuguese said: “We are not even in the race. We are not a horse.

“I don’t know what the word is. We are the small, young horses. We are just a pony.”

Mourinho however feels Chelsea and Liverpool are one of the biggest contenders to win the title.

“They [Chelsea] are one of the biggest contenders, there is no doubt about that.

“I believe that for them it is not a problem at all to be two points behind us and Liverpool, I think.

“They know how powerful they are and the squad that they have. And they know that this is a long season. They also know that Tottenham is not a candidate,” he said.
