Jose Mourinho has described Spurs as a 'big contender' for the Premier League title and insists any one of six teams can finish the season as English champions.
Mourinho comes face-to-face with Andre Villas-Boas as manager on Saturday for the first since the duo parted company at Inter in 2009.
– Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho
Tottenham are a big contender. They have bought players with quality.
Six teams are competing for the position. Any one of the six teams can be first, any one can be sixth.
In my first time time it was a clear race between Chelsea and Manchester United, two fantastic teams who were probably better than any team this moment.
Finally, Man City broke that period of blue and red dominance. At the moment the situation is different.
At this moment six teams are competing for the position, that is the beauty of the league. It is better like this.
