The race for the top four and the subsequent Champions League spots could not be closer this season, as a whole host of teams remain in the hunt.

Chelsea are currently in the driving seat as they hold the fourth position with 44 points, but Manchester United are just three points behind on 41.

Next come Tottenham and Sheffield United in sixth and seventh place respectively, both on 40 points and four behind Chelsea.

Wolves are just one point behind these two and Arsenal and Burnley sit on 37 points each. Outsides Everton are on 36 points down in 11th, still just eight behind Chelsea.

Unfortunately for Spurs, they are in the midst of an injury crisis, with the likes of Harry Kane, Heung-min Son, and Moussa Sissoko long-term absentees.

Tottenham are also still fighting on three fronts in the Premier League, Champions League, and FA Cup, stretching their squad even thinner.

Mourinho has now revealed that his plan is to just survive and stay in touch with fourth and fifth until the end of the season when he may be able to welcome back Kane and Son.
