Mourinho brushes aside title challenge talks after West Brom win

Harry Kane scored his 150th goal in the Premier Lague as Spurs left it late to win against West Bromwich Albion. West Brom almost seemed certain to have snatched a point until Kane popped up to flick a header in the 88th minute to win it for Spurs. The win has helped Spurs climb up to second in the table, prompting fans and pundits to consider Spurs as a challenger for the title.

Mourinho praised Kane for reaching the milestone, but quashed the title talks by saying “West Bromwich gave us a very difficult match. The way they played meant we had to play even better. I am pleased that we are compensating in away games for the points we have dropped at home but it is too early to get excited about anything at the moment. In a lot of countries we might be talked about as title hopefuls, but it is hard in the Premier League. You can have a very good season and still find Liverpool or Manchester City ahead of you. I am happy that Kane reached another landmark, but mostly I am pleased to have Harry playing for us. His all-round game is worth just as much as his goals. As well as scoring goals he recovers the ball and wins so many challenges.”
