Jose Mourinho claimed Tottenham Hotspur are the best team in the Premier League before the clash against Manchester United.
Man United hosted Tottenham at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon and went into the game nine points off a Champions League spot.
However, Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s spectacular goal opened the scoring and allowed Mourinho’s men to claim all three points and close the gap on the top four.
Speaking prior to the game, he claimed they were the most complete side in the league.
“I think they are the best team in the Premier League, they are the most complete team,” he said.
“Best defence but lots of quality in attacking areas, that’s why since last season i think that they, for me, at the best team in the league.”
It’s rare for Mourinho to offer praise for an opponent on the day he faces them, especially when he is facing the cameras pre-match, but Pochettino also spoke very highly of the Portuguese boss before the clash.
Ander Herrera played in a brilliant ball for Mkhitaryan and the Armenian showcased his classy finishing once again, giving Hugo Lloris no chance at saving his attempt on goal.
