Tottenham boss Mourinho: I am champion of past 5 games!

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has declared himself Premier League champion - for the past five games!

Defending his record since taking over from Mauricio Pochettino, Mourinho says the team's results would see them in the top four.

He insisted: "When I came to Tottenham, the team was in 14th place, lagging behind Arsenal by 3 points, before the Champions League zone there were 12 points.

"If you count the points since my arrival ... The point is that I'm not that important, Tottenham is more important, but if you want, you can count. In this case, I am in fourth place in the championship. If you think that taking 4th place in the Premier League is bad, then this is your opinion.

"If you want to laugh with me, you can say that I am the champion of England in the last five matches. You can give me a medal, we scored 13 points - the most!"
