The Spurs boss has distanced himself from title talk after his side started the Premier League campaign on a bright note.

The North-London side sit just two points behind surprise leaders Southampton. A game-in-hand means they will go top if they win at West Brom on Sunday.

But Jose Mourinho believes that they should not get carried away and instead focus on a match-to-match basis. Speaking ahead of a clash with his friend Slaven Bilic and the chances of his team winning the title, the Portuguese said, “No, no, no.

I have years of football experience and it is not a couple of victories that put me on the moon and it is not a couple of defeats that send me down to hell,” he said.

“It’s all about balance, taking it match by match, looking for improvement and seeing what happens.”

On the flip side, The Baggies are yet to win a game in the Premier League and have just three points in the bag. Asked if his counterpart was on borrowed time at The Hawthorns, Mourinho said, “I don’t know if he is under pressure or not. If he is, it is difficult to understand because he has helped the club in such a difficult position after being relegated.”

Bilic is a good guy: Mourinho

“He brought them back to the Premier League and we started the season just a couple of months ago. It is also a strange league at the moment.

“You win a game you are up in the table, you lose one and you are back down again. So I really don’t understand why he is under pressure if that is the case.

“But he is a big boy and he has a lot of experience which can help his club and I am sure he can cope with anything he has to deal with, but he is a good guy.”

Both teams will fight for all three points. Thus, the spectators can expect a feisty clash on Sunday.
