A disappointing performance from Tottenham Hotspur saw them beaten 2-0 on their home turf by rivals Chelsea yesterday afternoon.
José Mourinho had won 12 and lost none of his 13 home games in all competitions against sides he’s previously managed, including winning all three against Chelsea (once with Inter Milan, twice with Manchester United).
His side were second best against his former employers with Frank Lampard, who played under the Portuguese during his time at Stamford Bridge offering a classy response when asked about becoming the first manager to end Mourinho’s record.
Lampard insisted that he was not bothered about the record and instead praised the qualities of Mourinho whilst insisting that he had been gracious in defeat.
The loss meant that Spurs missed the opportunity to take fourth place in the Premier League table ahead of Christmas.
The North London side must now regroup for the visit of Brighton and Hove Albion on Boxing Day.
