Jose Mourinho got off to a winning start in his first home match as Tottenham Hotspur head coach when his side came from 2-0 down to win 4-2 against Olympiacos.

Tottenham started the game extremely poorly with the visitors going 2-0 up within the first twenty minutes. Spurs struggled to get going for the majority of the first half and Mourinho was forced to act, bringing Christian Eriksen on for Eric Dier at the half-hour mark.

That change had a positive impact as Spurs started to get more control of the game in midfield. The home side got a goal back just before half time through Dele Alli before a Harry Kane brace and another strike by Serge Aurier carried them to a comfortable victory.

Some Spurs fans were left extremely impressed with Mourinho’s in-game management and insisted that it was his tactical calls that proved the difference in the end.

Here’s how some Spurs fans reacted after the win:

Waiting until the 70th minute for Mauricio Pochettino to make a change even when things were not going well for the team was extremely frustrating to watch for the last couple of years. It’s certainly great to see Mourinho be more proactive and change personnel if things aren’t going according to plan.
