Tottenham Hotspur head coach Jose Mourinho believes Chelsea are the favorites for a top-four finish in the Premier League despite recent struggles in the current season.
Mourinho will be up against his former club Chelsea over the weekend and seemed to pile pressure ahead of Saturday's encounter. Only a point separates the pair ahead of the London derby and Mourinho has termed his side including the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United as underdogs to a top-four finish.
"At this moment, Tottenham, Manchester United, Arsenal, Sheffield United, Wolverhampton, Everton – we are the underdogs," he said ahead of weekend's clash.
"We have ambitions to be there but we are one, two, three points behind Chelsea, so they have an advantage to all of us. That’s obvious. It’s not a big advantage but it is an advantage. Chelsea at this moment is favorite for the fourth position, considering Leicester has nine points more at this stage of the season."
Following Manchester City's ban from the Champions League for two years, it means a fifth place would be enough to secure a spot in the competition.
