Jose Mourinho says Tottenham are "smelling the opportunity" to finish in the Champions League spots but feels there is big competition from at least five other teams for a fourth-place finish.

Tottenham face Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday, with Spurs four points behind fourth-placed Chelsea after a 2-0 victory over Manchester City in their last league outing before the winter break.

"Sometimes it looks like, because Chelsea are the fourth and sometimes Tottenham is in fifth and Manchester United are the sixth, we are smelling the opportunity."



Tottenham appointed former Chelsea and Manchester United boss Mourinho as manager in November following the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino when they were 11 points adrift of the top four, with an inferior goal difference to then fourth-placed Manchester City.

Speaking to BBC One's Football Focus, Mourinho said: "First of all, I see much more clubs then people think.

"With that gap, it was going to very difficult," Mourinho added.
