EPL: Mourinho laments sides handicap in finishing top-four after Champions League exit


Tottenham Hotspur head coach Jose Mourinho admitted that it will be difficult for his team to finish in the top four in the Premier League table this season with his current team after his departure from the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.

Mourinho's team was eliminated from the Champions League after losing 3-0 to RB Leipzig on Tuesday night in the round of 16 knockout at the Red Bull Arena.

Tottenham is currently in eighth position in the Premier League table with 41 points after 29 games.

The Spurs are seven points behind Chelsea's fourth place in the record.

"With the team we have, it will be very difficult for us to finish in the top four if we have the same team we had today tomorrow," Mourinho said according to Football London after the game.

“We have games ahead and we have to fight. We are going to fight, and the players must be very strong to face the limitations we have.

"We are not going to recover any player before Sunday."

Mourinho now hopes to lead Tottenham to victory when they face Manchester United in their next Premier League game on Sunday.
