Can Jose Mourinho restore Tottenham to capital's top club status for only third time in Premier League history?

Mirror Online Sports 3 weeks ago

Sacked Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino might not have won any silverware during his time at Tottenham , but he did steer Spurs to a Champions League final - AND the status as the capital's Premier League top dogs for only the second time in the competition's history.

Tottenham under Pochettino were the capital's leading team in 2017/18 - finishing third, seven points ahead of Chelsea and 14 clear of rivals Arsenal .

But that was the first time Spurs had enjoyed that distinction since 1994/95, when they finished seventh .. pipping eighth placed QPR and ninth-placed Wimbledon to the capital's crown!

Champions that year were Blackburn Rovers, ahead of Manchester United , Nottingham Forest, Liverpool , Leeds and Newcastle .

Bookies Thepools.com have published a range of Jose Mourinho specials following his appointment as new Tottenham boss.

And most intriguing is the 11/2 for him to steer Spurs back to be London's top club again.

Spurs are currently a miserable 14th in the table, 12 points behind third placed Chelsea but only three points behind sixth placed Arsenal.

Thepools.com make Spurs 3/1 to claw back the 11 points which currently separates them from the Top Four and qualify for next season's Champions League.

Spurs are well placed to qualify from Group B of the Champions League and are 28/1 to go one better than last season and lift the trophy.

While they are 17/2 to win this season's FA Cup.

During his time at Manchester United Mourinho described finishing runners up to Manchester City as one of his finest managerial achievements.

"If I tell you, for example, that I consider one of the best jobs of my career was to finish second with Manchester United in the Premier League, you say, ‘this guy is crazy. He won 25 titles and he’s saying that a second position was one of his best achievements in football’. I keep saying this because people don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes."

Would he change his mind if he reinstalled Tottenham as London's premier club this season?
