Jose Mourinho denied his Spurs side are in the hunt for the Premier League despite a 2-0 win over Manchester City on Saturday.
Speaking after the game, Mourinho pointed out that his side’s position could be held only briefly.
“It feels good [to be top], but maybe tomorrow we are second again and honestly that would not be a problem for me, I am just happy with the evolution,” he said.
“People cannot expect us to come here and after one season we are fighting for the title.
“We are not fighting for the title, we are just fighting to win every match. But we are going to lose matches, we are going to draw matches.
“But no problem if Leicester wins [tomorrow] and we are second again.”
