Mourinho: ‘Best team in the world’ Liverpool ‘lucky’ to beat Spurs
Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur wasted a chance to take a point against Liverpool on Saturday, even without Harry Kane.
Spurs attackers Giovani Lo Celco and Heung-min Son missed prime chances to equalize in the second half of a 1-0 loss at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the first match since Kane was ruled out for four months.

“Sometimes you get more than you deserve, sometimes you get less,” said Mourinho, via Football.London. “This was an occasion when we got nothing when we deserved something. This is the best team in the world against a team in a difficult moment, with injuries, in a difficult part of the season. The boys were fantastic when we tried to change and create problems.”
Mourinho agrees that no one is going to catch Liverpool for the Premier League title, and claims credit for diagnosing that when he was still a pundit.

And he especially thinks would’ve been different with Kane.
