Jose Mourinho thinks second place in the Premier League is an attainable target for his in-form Manchester United side.
With his former club Chelsea 15 points clear of sixth-place United, Mourinho thinks the title is already out of reach.
But second-placed Tottenham are only five points clear of United, who entertain Bournemouth on Saturday, live on Sky Sports 1.
EFL Cup winners United still have commitments in the FA Cup and Europa League, but Mourinho is targeting a runner-up placing in the title race.
“The second position is very difficult but it’s very possible,” said Mourinho.
“First is impossible. Second is possible and we have to fight for it.
“The Europa League is very difficult, but it’s a target for us and, if we beat Rostov, we find ourselves in the quarter-final.
“Then we have to think really seriously about the Europa League because, in this moment, we are still in the last 16.
“Quarter-final, you smell the final and then, in a certain period of the season, I have to analyse my team, the players, the conditions of everyone and, if I have to make choices, I have to make choices.
