It was a false start against Everton on opening day, but Mourinho-ball soon began to pay off for Spurs. They kicked things into overdrive with a famous 6-1 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford, and by December, they were staring in the face of a legitimate title challenge.
Mourinho was quick to play things down, however, and his claim that Tottenham were “a pony in a horse race” was soon proven right. They lost to Liverpool and Chelsea in December as their form tailed off, and by April, he was out of a job.
The temporary appointment of Ryan Mason hasn’t been the disaster many predicted, but two defeats in their last five league matches buried any residual hopes they had of making the Champions League.
Their win over Leicester on the final day was a real source of optimism – though there are some Spurs fans who would have rather finished 8th, such is the roaring excitement about their involvement in the Conference League.
