After back-to-back wins in the Premier League, Spurs are now up to fifth and just four points behind Chelsea in fourth. This comes as the Blues were a whopping 12 in front of the Lilywhites when Jose Mourinho first took over in North London.

However, a lot of the damage was done at the start of the season for Spurs, as the Pochettino express seemed to finally lose steam.

After five and a half years at the helm, the Argentine was sacked and Mourinho was appointed under 24 hours later.

But, what would the Premier League table look like if the competition had started from the day Jose was given the job?

Tottenham would currently be in the top four in this new-look table, level on points with Leicester City in third and only three behind Man City in second. Liverpool would still be mils in front, but that comes as no surprise.

The top half of the table would look as follows:

1 – Liverpool – 39 points

2 – Man City – 26 points

3 – Leicester City – 23 points

4 – Tottenham – 23 points

5 – Southampton – 23 points

6 – Man United – 19 points

7 – Wolves – 19 points

8 – Everton – 19 points

9 – Sheffield United – 19 points

10 – Newcastle United – 16 points
