Jose Mourinho Names Four Teams Who Can Win Premier League, Including Man City 'B' Team

Jose Mourinho doesn't think his former clubs, Manchester United and Chelsea, can win the Premier League this season.

The 56-year-old appeared alongside Gary Neville and Graeme Souness as a pundit on Sky Sports ahead of the Super Sunday clash between United and Chelsea at Old Trafford.

He was asked a number of questions on the show, including who he thinks can realistically win the 2019/20 Premier League title

"Four teams. Man City, Tottenham, Liverpool and Man City's B team." he said.

"When I looked at City's bench and saw the players that weren't involved in the XI, I believe even their B team can win the title"

Pep Guardiola named Claudio Bravo, Joao Cancelo, Nicolas Otamendi, Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden and Sergio Aguero on his bench for Saturday's 5-0 win over West Ham.

Fellow pundit Gary Neville agreed with Mourinho, suggesting United are "in a battle" for fourth position with Chelsea and Arsenal.

"Manchester United can't win the title and I don't think Chelsea can either." he said.

"I think United would snap your hands off now if you offered them fourth. I think they are in a battle with Chelsea and Arsenal for that position.

"I think Tottenham, Liverpool and City are well ahead.

"Manchester United have got to start one block at a time. You can't expect them to go from where they have been over the last seven years to winning the title.

"As a United fan, all I want them to do is create a strategy and stick to it."

Graeme Souness thinks Manchester City and Liverpool will once again challenge for the title and thinks "nobody will come close" to the top two.

"I think City and Liverpool are a good bit ahead of everyone else, including Tottenham." he said.

"They could put a good run together and have a really strong group of players again.

"I don't think anyone will come close to the top two. I see them battling it out again."
