- Jose Mourinho believes Tottenham can make top four at the end of this season
- The north Londoners are sixth on the table after 25 matches with 37 points
- The Portuguese tactician says his side will have to contend with other fighting teams for the positions.
Jose Mourinho is confident Tottenham Hotspur would finish top-four at the end of the season due to the inconsistencies of Chelsea and Manchester United.
Spurs are currently sixth on the Premier League table with 37 points after 25 rounds of matches so far this campaign.
The north London club travels to Villa Park to battle Aston Villa this weekend as they hope to displace fifth-place Sheffield United while also chasing Chelsea from their fourth position.
Mourinho and his sars have been on winter break in the league since their famous 2-0 win over defending champions Manchester City which helped Liverpool stretch their lead to 22 points.
Although, the Portuguese born tactician believes some other teams like Sheffield and Wolverhampton Wanderers also have a shot at the Champions League positions.
Mourinho told BBC "First of all, I see many more clubs then people think.
"Sometimes it looks like, because Chelsea are the fourth and sometimes Tottenham is in fifth and Manchester United are the sixth, we are smelling the opportunity."
The former Real Madrid boss also tipped Manchester United and Arsenal to show some characters and fight for the positions in the remainder of the season.
"I think people forget there are big contenders," the Spurs boss added. "Wolves, Sheffield United, Man United - even Arsenal - so it's not just about what's the distance between us and Chelsea."
Mourinho became Tottenham boss in November following the sack of Mauricio Pochettino who took them to their first-ever Champions League final last season.

Despite winning his first three matches in charge of the club, Manchester United ended his winning streak during his visit to Old Trafford in December.
