Premier League title race ‘practically’ over, we hope to finish second – Mourinho

Jose Mourinho has all but conceded the Premier League title will be won by Manchester United’s crosstown rivals Manchester City this season.

Following United’s 2-0 defeat at top four rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday, Mourinho’s second-place side fell 15 points behind Man City with 13 games to go.

United are embroiled in a race to finish in the top four as they’re in second place in the table but just five points ahead of fifth-place Tottenham.

Mourinho knows that and has acknowledged that the title race is “practically closed” with City losing just once all season long.

“They are doing so so well, it makes me feel like they aren’t letting the others come close to them.With the number of points we have in normal conditions that would leave the fight open. In this moment the fight is open for third, second, fourth, fifth and the sixth, but is practically closed for the first,” Mourinho said. “We are trying to become first of the last. We want to finish second.”

“I cannot say we are doing bad or Tottenham are doing bad or Chelsea are doing bad. Manchester City started strong and kept being strong with results and managed to win games even when they didn’t deserve. I give credit. Last minute in extra time. If you tell me all the six want to be champion so the the other five have failed. I don’t think that is correct.”
