It is fair to say that Jose Mourinho has had a mixed start to his career as Tottenham head coach. While Spurs have won most of their games and have made up a lot of ground up on the top four, a few of the performances have been extremely disappointing.
While Tottenham enjoyed a fantastic start to the Mourinho era, the excitement has dropped due to the defeats in big games against Chelsea and Manchester United.
The Portuguese tactician and his coaching staff have got the Spurs attack firing again but they haven’t been able to solve the defensive issues that have been plaguing the side since the start of the season.
The draw against Norwich on Saturday was yet another case of individual errors costing the side points and the performance suggested that the 56-year-old has a lot of work to do to fix things at the back (Guardian).
However, despite the mixed performance and results as of late, Tottenham are absolutely flying in the form table since Mourinho arrived at the club.
In the eight Premier League games which Spurs have had since Mourinho arrived last month, they have taken 16 points which is the joint second-highest tally with Manchester City and 8 points behind Liverpool.

While 16 points from 8 games is more than a decent return, we have certainly been aided by the fact that none of the top teams other than Liverpool have done well in the last month and a half. While our points return since Mourinho arrived has been excellent, I still expect the race for the top four spots to go right down to the wire.
