Tottenham Hotspur managed to pick up another three points at home to Man City at the weekend to follow up on their last Premier League win against Norwich City.

These six points have thrust the Lilywhites back into top-four contention, particularly after the results really went Mourinho’s way this weekend.

Chelsea, who currently sit in fourth, could only manage a 2-2 draw against third-placed Leicester City. Man City, of course, dropped three points. Man United and Wolves both took a point off each other and Arsenal drew 0-0 with Burnley.

Spurs are now up to fifth in the Premier League, just four points behind Chelsea. However, Sheffield United lurk just one point behind and Man United and Wolves another one beyond that.

Jose Mourinho was keen to point out that there were a fair few teams fighting it out around the top four and also pointed towards the difficult injuries within his side this season.

He said (Football London): “It’s four points from Chelsea but it’s maybe one point to Sheffield or two points to United or two points to Wolves or something like that. So we look up and we also look down. I look to my team, I look to my squad with the problems we had with injuries. It’s going to be hard.

“I know that the players were fantastic. I know they are ready to give everything like they did, but I really don’t know. Let’s go. Match after match. We’ve got a difficult one now, the FA Cup in two days. Let’s see but I’m so, so pleased for the boys and for the fans too.”
