Tottenham thriving under Mourinho
Jose Mourinho took the reins at Tottenham last month.
The decorated manager’s first game at the helm for Spurs saw the North London outfit clinch a 3-2 victory over West Ham.
That win vs the Hammers was also Spurs’ first away league victory since January of 2019.
The Lilywhites have then built on that away victory, winning three of their following four league outings under Mourinho, including a 5-0 thrashing of Burnley.
And despite Spurs looking increasingly unlikely to finish in the PL top-four this term when Mauricio Pochettino was in the dugout, the North London outfit are now just three points adrift of 4th place Chelsea.
Spurs can also overtake Chelsea in the league table if they pick up all three points when the pair meet this coming Sunday.
As well as improving Tottenham’s form, Mourinho looks to have had a positive impact on Dele Alli.
The midfielder was struggling for form at the back end of last season and at the beginning of this campaign.
However, under Mourinho’s guidance, Alli looks a completely different player.
In his last six appearances, Alli has netted four and provided two assists.

Mourinho wants to trim Spurs squad
Now, with the January transfer window fast approaching, it seems as though Mourinho wants to make a few changes to his current crop of players.
The Telegraph have reported on Wednesday that the former Chelsea and Manchester United boss wants to trim his squad in the winter window in order to get his pool of players to the ideal size.
The Telegraph goes on to claim that Mourinho is willing to let Victor Wanyama leave the club. Mourinho is also said to be willing to listen to offers for Danny Rose.
Spurs also look set to lose Christian Eriksen in the near future with his contract expiring in the summer. And the aforementioned report from the Telegraph stated the Dane could depart:
Christian Eriksen’s contract is expiring in the summer and he could also depart.
