Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has claimed that he could bring the Premier League title to North London.

Mourinho suggested that the pressure he puts on his own shoulders is more than what others would put on him.
Despite the poor run of form and the club at risk of losing their ability to keep up with the top four, Mourinho has suggested that the could end the club’s long wait for a top flight title.
Spurs host West Bromwich Albion on Sunday against Sam Allardyce’s relegation strugglers and will be looking to get the season back on track.

He told Football.London: “I put pressure on myself every day. I don’t need others to put pressure on me. I put pressure on myself every day. Every day. So since 2012 without three defeats in a row? But since when without a title?” he asked.
