Jose Mourinho enjoyed a winning start as Tottenham Hotspur head coach with a 3-2 London derby victory over West Ham at London Stadium.

Here are the top facts and stats following the win:

Having lost his first ever competitive game as manager, with Benfica in September 2000, Jose Mourinho has gone unbeaten in his first game in charge at each of his eight clubs since, including two different spells with Chelsea (W5 D3).

Mourinho won as many points in this game as Mauricio Pochettino mustered in his final 12 away Premier League games with Tottenham (W0 D3 L9).

West Ham have picked up just two points from their last 21 available in the Premier League (W0 D2 L5).

Tottenham have won three consecutive away league games against West Ham for the first time in their history.

All four of Michail Antonio’s Premier League goals for West Ham against Spurs have come at different venues – Upton Park, White Hart Lane, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and London Stadium.

Antonio is one of four players to score at four different venues for a single club against a single opponent in the Premier League, alongside Steed Malbranque (Fulham v Manchester City), Dele Alli (Tottenham v Watford) and Christian Eriksen (Tottenham v Everton).

Tottenham’s Harry Kane has scored eight goals in his last nine Premier League games against West Ham. Indeed, Kane has scored 29 goals in 46 Premier League London derbies – only Thierry Henry (43), Teddy Sheringham (32) and Frank Lampard (32) have netted more.

Kane has now scored 175 goals in 269 appearances for Tottenham – only Jimmy Greaves (266) and Bobby Smith (208) have netted more.

Son Heung-min (19) is Tottenham’s leading goalscorer in all competitions in 2019, netting one more than Kane (18) this calendar year.
