Jose Mourinho doesn't believe United are top four contenders

Jose Mourinho doesn't believe United are top four contenders

Tottenham Hotspur have the opportunity to crank up the pressure on Chelsea in the battle for fourth place in the Premier League this weekend as they emerge from their mini mid-season break.

However, Sheffield United are just points adrift of fourth place having played one game more than their fellow challengers.

Liverpool have more or less wrapped up the Premier League title but now it's the top-four race which is heating up with as many as seven clubs still in the hunt for the final Champions League spot. "Not just because of the position that they are in the table, it is because of the power and quality", Mourinho told Sky Sports.

"They arrive in this situation where, in the eyes of everybody, they should be more than happy, but they are not more than happy".

"Sheffield bought an important player [Sander Berge for £22m], they beat their record in the market to try to improve their team". It's not just about us.

Former Arsenal midfielder Merson said Mourinho regretted joining Tottenham in his Daily Star column as he was no longer "high-fiving ball boys" in reference to his celebrations in his second game in charge against Olympiacos. He went on to add that it wasn't just about the traditional powerhouses this season though.

The former Cardiff boss also discussed his recent injury problems, with news that Scott McTominay, Axel Tuanzebe and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are nearly ready to return.

"I do feel I wasn't given as much of a chance as everybody else in the backline".

"Hopefully he gets back into management and if things work out there might be a possible opportunity".
