Tottenham Hotspur have made a near-perfect start to life under Jose Mourinho, with the only blemish on their record coming away to the Special One’s old team Man United.
Spurs lost that game 2-1, but have won every single other game under the new gaffer, bar a meaningless defeat in Munich at the hands of Bayern.
Tottenham managed to grind out a tough result away to Wolves this weekend, with Lucas Moura and Jan Vertonghen scoring Spurs’ goals, the latter being a 91st-minute winner.
Harry Kane now believes that Spurs come into the upcoming Chelsea match with much-needed momentum, and he sees it as a potentially festive season-defining match.
The Tottenham striker claims that Spurs feel they can definitely beat the teams they are scheduled to play over Christmas, with Chelsea being a hurdle they must overcome first.
He also added that Mourinho is still implementing his own style in North London.
Kane said (Standard): “We have the momentum at the moment. But next weekend is the big one. If we can win that and push into the top four, then we have fixtures over the Christmas period that we feel we can definitely win.
“Whenever a new manager comes in, everyone’s ready, wants to work, wants to impress. But it’s important that we carry it on.
“Even before Chelsea’s defeat on Saturday, we said it’s two important games. We knew how much it meant to win at Wolves and with Chelsea losing the day before it meant even more.
“Mourinho’s got his own style. For me, it is about learning that way. He’s one of the highest level managers in our sport, so I can only learn from him.”
