They say a week is a long time in football and that’s definitely been the case for Jose Mourinho since becoming the new Tottenham Head Coach.
Mourinho took over a Spurs side that were without a Premier League victory for almost two months, but has quickly brought back the feel good factor back to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, picking up consecutive league victories for the first time this season as well as securing qualification for the Champions League knockout stages in midweek.
Prior to Spurs’ 3-2 win at West Ham United last weekend, they found themselves a massive 11 points adrift of fourth-place and qualifying for next season’s elite competition looked an extremely tall order.
However, maximum points, combined with Chelsea losing both of their Premier League matches means Mourinho’s men are suddenly within touching distance of the Blues, who sit just six points clear of Tottenham ahead of Wednesday’s intriguing trip to Old Trafford.
You can see the Premier League table prior to Mourinho’s arrival and what it looks like after this weekends results in the tweet below.
They tell me a week is along time in football…. Not a chance of top 4 they tell me… They tell me I am deluded and not realistic…. Negativity everywhere…
They are right about something…. A week is a long time in football 😉
