Former Everton and Aston Villa striker Andy Gray has given his assessment on Jose Mourinho’s impact at Tottenham Hotspur.

The Portuguese has now been in charge of the North London outfit for a little over a year after taking over from Mauricio Pochettino last November.

The 57-year-old guided his side to a 2-0 victory against Manchester City on Saturday evening to take his side to the top of the Premier League.

The beIN Sports pundit believes that Tottenham have been “Mourinho’d” by implementing a style of play which is not to everyone’s liking and described the win against City as a typical Mourinho performance in a big game.

Gray highlighted the style which Mourinho has adopted of two quick wide players with Harry Kane pulling the strings by being a creator of chances along with a goalscorer along with a midfield that fits his trademark criteria of being big and powerful by not starting Harry Winks or Giovani Lo Celso and instead has the physical strength of Moussa Sissoko Tanguy Ndombele and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

He believes that Mourinho now has a team which he likes which will result in him keeping faith with around eight players for every game, where possible.
