Tottenham started the season off woefully at home against Everton and deservedly lost 1-0, however, from that point onwards things changed for the better.
An impressive 5-2 win against Southampton released the all-new Son Heung-min and Harry Kane partnership on to the world, that was followed by a very unfortunate 1-1 draw at home to Newcastle before that visit to Old Trafford.
Spurs destroyed Man Utd 6-1 in their own backyard and the signs were there that this Tottenham team had finally clicked under the special one, they were far more energetic and confident than we had seen in a while.
That intensity and ambition continued into the following game against West Ham when Spurs shot into a 3-0 lead and then it started to unravel.
We all know what happened next, the lads folded quicker than a pack of cards in a thunderstorm and ended up drawing 3-3.
From that point onwards we got to see a completely different Tottenham, one that would no longer be so adventurous.
Narrow wins over Burnley, Brighton and West Brom would follow, none of those matches was entertaining or even convincing, they were drab affairs.
There was, of course, the brilliant win over Man City but that match suited the pragmatism of Jose Mourinho and to some extent, the same applied to the draw with Chelsea and win over Arsenal.
But it was clear that something had changed since the West Ham debacle, Tottenham regressed, they looked afraid to attack and Mourinho took his park the bus mentality on to another level.
It became clear that he was frightened of a repeat of the West Ham game and decided that defence at all cost, regardless of the opponent would be the tactic going forward.
It backfired against Crystal Palace, it opened the door for Liverpool and it cost us dearly against Leicester City.
Tottenham changed after the West Ham game or should I say Mourinho did, he has allowed that West Ham result to take hold in his mind and we are now paying a price for that.
There is a place and time for counter-attacking football and there is a time for playing on the front foot, Spurs have immense attacking talent and against certain opponents should be unleashed but the fear that has enveloped Mourinho is now handicapping the team.
He is a very experienced manager and hopefully, he will realise what has happened, if he does not then it could get ugly.
