Wolves & Sheffield Are In Top 4 Race-Jose Mourinho

Wolves and Sheffield United are both genuine contenders for the top four positions in the Premier League, according to Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho has heaped praise on the work both Nuno Espirito Santo and Chris Wilder have done with their respective clubs this season.

The newly-promoted Blades sit fifth just two points off Chelsea in fourth, while Wolves are in ninth on 35 points – despite having had to contend with extra fixtures in the Europa League.

Mourinho understands if Wilder and Nuno themselves do not consider their sides to be in the race to qualify for the Champions League but says their performances so far this season and their January recruitment suggest otherwise.

“Wolves and Sheffield United are fighting for the top four, [the managers] can say no, I understand if they say no, but the reality is that they are. Not just because of the position that they are in the table, it is because of the power and quality,” Mourinho told Sky Sports News.
