Lucas Moura believes that with Jose Mourinho, Tottenham have a manager who can guide them to the Premier League title.

Tottenham have enjoyed a great start to the season. They sit top of the table nine games into the new campaign. It is just over a year since Mourinho took over from Mauricio Pochettino as Spurs manager.

Tottenham had a busy summer transfer wise. Gareth Bale, Sergio Regulion, Matt Doherty and Pierre-Emile Holjberg were among their new recruits.

These new additions have helped their positive start. Spurs have six wins from nine. This includes impressive victories over Manchester United and Manchester City.

In an interview cited by The Independent, Moura suggested that Mourinho is the man who can take Tottenham to the title:

“I don’t like to speak about previous coaches. I can only speak about the coach we have now.

“Mauricio had a good time here and did a lot for this club, he did really well for the club. Now it’s a new time.

“Everybody knows Mourinho. He is a winner and he has won trophies at every club.

“I want to win with him and I think we deserve to win a trophy. In the last 10 years the club has done well – and it’s time.

“Why not think to win the Premier League? We have the capacity to win. I know it’s too early and there’s a lot of games to play but in every game we need to think we are capable of winning the Premier League and that every game is important.

“That’s why in every game we are trying to show that mentality and we are doing very well. We need to keep that going.”

Liverpool were meant to run out of steam. David Moyes wasn’t supposed to still be in a job. Oops.
