The former Spurs midfielder Tim Sherwood believes Tottenham could win the Premier League title.
’s team was beaten 1-0 byEverton
in their opening game. But since then, they have changed completely and have wonSouthampton
and now they have the best defensive record in the entire division.
Now with winning 2-0Manchester City
on Saturday, Mourinho has become closer to win his fourth Premier League title.
The ex-Tottenham midfielder Tim Sherwood admires what Mourinho has done and believes they could win the title.
“He’s found a way with the group of players he has,” he said.
“He’s bought very well, [Sergio] Reguilon has been a good signing at left-back, but [Pierre-Emile] Hojbjerg for me has been the best signing. He fits into the style and just protects the two center-halves.
“Jose has brainwashed his players to believe they have to work to achieve something – they need to win trophies, this group of players.
“When you play as solid as they do, he’s almost brainwashed them into believing.
“And why wouldn’t you believe in him? He’s won 20 major trophies in his career and you’re winning football matches, so then you start believing that this guy is the real deal, he knows what he’s talking about, and why can’t we win the league?"
He added: “When we’ve got players like Son and Kane, who are world-class and could probably play in any team in the world, you’ve always got a chance.
“They haven’t played fantastically well this season, but who cares? On the back of my medal it doesn’t say: ‘Oh, and by the way, we didn’t play well for 24 games’.
“You just go and pick it up at the end of the season, and that’s it!”
