Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho has warned that his team are far from winning La Liga, despite opening up a five-point advantage on Barcelona.

"We're far from having won La Liga," said the Portuguese. "We've already lost five points in the space of two matches this season."

Barcelona suffered a major setback to their hopes of retaining their title when they were held to a 1-1 draw by city rivals Espanyol yesterday, leaving Real Madrid, who had coasted to a 5-1 win over Granada, in control of their own title destiny.

Mourinho added that the focus this year was more on the league title.

"The Copa del Rey hasn't the same importance as La Liga, above all after already winning it last season," he said.

"But all the same, it's a competition that we're going to try and win."
