If you ever thought it was finished for Jose Mourinho in football management, it’s time for you to hire the best lawyers in town and draft a well-worded apology to the Special One.

 

When Jose Mourinho took over a troubled Spurs exactly a year ago, many thought it was a downward spiral from there for the North London club especially with the way they fired Mauricio Pochetino just five months after leading them to the champions league final defeat against Liverpool.

It started poorly but soon settled into a fine run that ensured Spurs would return to Europe, albeit the second tier and fixture congestion was always going to be a talking point.

But Spurs have dealt with every of those pressure nearly unscathed.

The opening day defeat at Everton has been banished and the form of the duo of Harry Kane and Heung Min Son has taken Spurs to the summit of the premier league.

Manchester City came to town with the intent of proving they’re not a spent force.

Pep Guardiola handed a starting berth to Ferran Torres following his hat-trick heroics against Germany in midweek with Raheem Sterling dropping to the bench as well as Phil Foden.

It didn’t take long for Spurs to hit the visitors, Heung Min Son got on the end of a delightful pass from Tanguy Ndombele inside five minutes, fine first touch to take it away from Ruben Dias before firing past the on rushing Ederson in the City goal.

Spurs thought they had another on the 12th minute when Steven Bergwijn fed Son on the right with the City defense in shambles.

The Korean found Kane unmarked and the England captain made no mistake but the flag rightfully went up for offside.

It was City’s turn to feel the horror of the VAR, Aymeric Laporte fired home right inside the Spurs area after being teed up by Gabriel Jesu.

But replay shows the Brazilian handled the ball from Rodri before getting the chance to find the Frenchman.

End to end stuff followed, Kevin De Bruyne went narrowly wide from an effort outside the box and Ederson denied Kane before halftime.

Jose Mourinho completed his masterclass when he sent on Giovani Lo Celso before the hour mark in place of the impressive Ndombele and it took only 35 seconds for the Portuguese to find the net for his first Tottenham goal and much to the delight of his countryman in the dugout.

Man City gave it everything but Spurs stood firm, Raheem Sterling replaced the ineffective Bernado Silva and Phil Foden had a look in as well.

Hugo Lloris saved from Gabriel Jesus and Eric Dier blocked a dangerous looking De Bruyne's effort.

The win sent Spurs to the top of the table, with Chelsea in second up next for Jose Mourinho, another test for the team on the rise.
