Tottenham came back from two goals down to win 4-2 against Olympiacos last night to make it two wins in two for Jose Mourinho as manager.
The Portuguese gaffer certainly enjoyed an eventful home debut, but it was not the start to the game he would have been hoping for as the visitors went 2-0 up within the first 20 minutes.
Mourinho thus acted promptly bringing Christian Eriksen on for Eric Dier around the half-hour mark, a substitution that helped Spurs regain control of the game.
Dele Alli got a goal back just before half time to bring Tottenham right back into the match.
The second half was a completely different story, as the home side looked threatening every single time they came forward and the Greek team simply couldn’t cope with the intensity.
Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko and Toby Alderweireld took to social media to convey their delight at the win and progression to the next round.

As disappointing as the first half was, the reaction in the second half was great to see from the team. It is clear that Mourinho and the coaching staff identified what was wrong with the team and fixed it when they came out for the second half. Hopefully, it was a sign of things to come.
