Tottenham Spurs are ready for the title, it seems that we can rightly say that now. They are first in the Premier League table in a very turbulent season, they have the same number of points as Liverpool, the third-best attack in the league (23) and the best defense (9).
They passed the last colloquium of this season's exam last weekend and ended the series of matches with Manchester City (2: 0), Chelsea (0: 0), and Arsenal (2: 0) with seven points and no goals conceded - impressive!
No need to waste words on the attacking tandem that brings the greatest credit for this amazing series of results (since the defeat in the first round by Everton, they have recorded seven wins and three draws). Harry Kane and Son Heung Min have scored as many as 11 goals for each other this season, the striker from South Korea is the league's second top scorer with 10 goals (three assists), while the captain of the English national team is missing two goals to a double-double (eight goals and 10 assistance).
Once again, Mourinho did a great job by signing players this summer, the transfer of Pierre Emil Hojbjerg from Southampton for 17,000,000 euros is already considered one of the best this season in the whole of Europe, the Dane formed a great tandem with Sissoko in the midfield.
The former Bayern player does everything, cuts attacks, spoils the opponent's game, dictates the pace, is a real nightmare for all rivals, so Mourinho called him a "captain without a ribbon" in his style. There was no mistake with the signing of Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid, when they saw the left-back playing in the Tottenham jersey, they certainly grab each other by the head in the Spanish capital.
He is extremely penetrating, technically very well-skilled, and at the same time he is very stable in defense, he fulfills all tasks on the field very responsibly. There is also Gareth Bale, who has already scored two goals but is looking for form exclusively in the Europa League and some episodes in the elite English rank, as well as defender Joe Rodon, who played a great derby with Chelsea, then Matt Doherty, Vinicius, Joe Hart - Tottenham did a really great job during the last transfer window.
And how does Tottenham play? Like all successful Mourinho's teams, firmly in the backline, stable in the midfield, and deadly in attack. "When we need the ball, we have it. When we need to be aggressive in transition, we are aggressive.
When we need to be compact, solid, hardworking, organized, we will be. We will be at the top of the Premier League for another week, which is a lot of fun. ", said Jose Mourinho after the victory in the big city derby against Arsenal.
"Tottenham is not a candidate for the title. We are not even in the race, we are not a horse, we are small and young, like a pony," said Mr. Special in his style, but the fact that they are not the main favorite does not mean that in the end, they will not sit on the throne
