Jose Mourinho’s First KPI At Spurs
By Harry Hotspur -

Every season, football fans have a handful of games which beyond the fortunes of the league table provide a decent indication of where their side is at, in respect of Tottenham, those sides routinely include Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.

Historically, Spurs track record at Old Trafford is poor. Tottenham have lost more Premier League games against Man United than they have versus any other side in the competition (34).

It’s been 351 days since Jose Mourinho was in charge at Old Trafford and this game will be Jose’s first key performance indicator.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaaer has been firefighting all season. The Red Devils boss felt forced to publicly deny rumours he was merely a few games away from the chop.

As for the returning Portuguese, Graeme Souness perhaps summed up the situation best of all.

Tottenham boss José Mourinho could become just the third manager to win a Premier League away game at Old Trafford with two different clubs (after Martin O’Neill and Rafael Benítez), having won there 3-1 with Chelsea in May 2005.

Additionally, José Mourinho could become the first ever Tottenham manager to win their first three top-flight games in charge of us.

The bookies have United as narrow favourites @8/4 and Tottenham @17/10, meanwhile the draw is draw @12/5.

    No pogba.. They are poor at the minute.. Expecting us to go 3 or 4 goals up, then give away 2 or 3 goals for another last minute nail biter.. We should win though they are in disarray, struggling to string a pass together, with only rashford looking dangerous going forward and hes hit or miss.. 2-3 to us and plenty of pantomime booing for the special (its not about me) one.

      was gonna say basically the same – its the best chance we will get against them. Only negative factor is they wont want to lose to Jose. Realistically though, they don’t have enough to score against us even in this sorry state.

        Crucial game. Both need wins really to keep up with that top four…not many points seperate 5th place to near relegation.. Youre right the jose factor should turn it into a spicy affair. Would be even hotter if they were unveiling pochy as their new gaffer.

          I think United need the points for Europa – we need it for CL. I cant see United having real aspirations for top 4 this season.
