Leicester City will face Tottenham on Sunday, in a game that could have a major impact on the race for top four.

Just one point separate Chelsea from Leicester City and Manchester United, and Mourinho doesn’t think anyone is safe, not even Chelsea who are third in the league.

But Tottenham boss, José Mourinho, has insisted he doesn’t care about helping anyone qualify for top four, adding that only those deserving of a place in the competition will be in it.

The former United boss told reporters: “First of all, I’m not looking at that [top four] fight. I don’t know mathematically what’s possible for them, I think they play the last game between them, I don’t know if things can be decided there.

“I don’t know if Chelsea are in a safe position, I don’t think they are. I think they are still in this fight, and if Manchester United does it, they’ll do it by playing very well in the second part of the season.

“And when you play well, you deserve. And on top of that everybody knows they were a bit lucky more than one time. Lucky that others didn’t have. Us for example, didn’t have that luck.”
