Top-four finish for Spurs would be incredible - Mourinho

LONDON (Reuters) - Jose Mourinho says it would be 'incredible' if his Tottenham Hotspur side finish in the Premier League's top four and claims it would rival his greatest achievements.

Tottenham were languishing in 14th place, 12 points behind third-placed Chelsea and 11 off the top four, when Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino in November.However, he said a top-four finish with Spurs would surpass it, especially as he is likely to be without leading strikers Harry Kane and Son Heung-min for the run-in.

Based on a Premier League form table since Mourinho took over, only Liverpool and Manchester City have collected more points than Tottenham in the last 14 games. In that period Tottenham have taken 11 points more than Chelsea."We have earned the right to fight for it. Some say it's impossible but we are ready to fight."

Mourinho said Erik Lamela, who came on in the 1-0 defeat by RB Leipzig on Wednesday, will play some part at Chelsea despite not being able to train fully and that midfield powerhouse Moussa Sissoko may return for the last six weeks of the season.
