The Jose Mourinho era at Tottenham got off to a great start with the Lilywhites beating West Ham United 3-2 at the London Stadium to register their first away win in the Premier League since January.

In the post-match interview to BT Sport, the Spurs midfielder insisted that he wanted to become even better than he was a couple of years ago and that he was working hard to reach his true potential.
