Victories in their last two games of the Premier League season would see them qualify for Europe's second-tier European cup, which he's previously won with both Porto and Manchester United.
Spurs have been hampered by injuries throughout the season but victory over their North London rivals Arsenal last weekend has set them up for a finish inside the European spots.
“I think Spurs would be even better than that without all the problems that we had,” Mourinho said ahead of Sunday's match against Leicester. “I think no other team had even similar problems to that.
“As I was saying, in the most difficult moment of the season I was just speaking about surviving, surviving was to leave us in a position where we could eventually fight for that.
“The fact that we’re fourth since my arrival, without Lloris, Harry Kane, Sissoko, Son, without almost everybody, is a good reflection of the potential that we have, the work we’re all doing.
“That’s why I say the minimum we deserve is to finish in a position to keep us in European football, a competition that we don’t deserve.
“It’s not our level, we’re better than that, but still European competition. Football is not about what you deserve, it’s about what you effectively get. So we can’t say we deserve it and then don’t get points in these two matches. So we need to win matches now.”
