Tottenham boss, Jose Mourinho is eyeing Europa League trophy for his side as they currently seats on 7th position on the Premiership league table.
Three wins from their past four games have made them favourites to book a spot in Europe’s second-tier competition going into the final two matches of the Premier League season, starting with Leicester on Sunday.
Sixth place would definitely secure qualification, while seventh — the spot they currently occupy — would be enough if Arsenal do not win the FA Cup. A feat that might too big for gunners to land.
Mourinho, who last appeared on Europe major competition with Manchester United believed he could help his boys to cultivate a champions mind even as they look for way to secure a ticket for the Europa league.
“In quite a funny way, I’m telling the players, two more victories to win the Europa League,” he said. “That’s what I’m telling the players.
“I know it’s not like that, I know the Europa League is a long competition and of course some good teams, of course some teams go from Champions League to Europa League in the knockout phase and makes it a really difficult competition.
“But it’s just a feeling to try to motivate the boys because of course our level is Champions League. I want Champions League, the players played in the Champions League final.”
The Portuguese also confirmed that Dele Alli will miss Sunday’s match with Leicester with his hamstring injury while the club will again allow Serge Aurier to decide whether he is involved.
The right-back played against Newcastle on Wednesday just 48 hours after his brother was killed, but he is currently back in France with family.
The game with Liecester will prove demanding for Spurs as the encounter present itself as a Champions league qualification lifeline for the foxes who currently seats 4th on the table.
A win for Liecester will help them create a favourable atmosphere in their bid to appear on the next season Champions League fixtures.
