Premier League: Here are the records held by Jose Mourinho
Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur registered a convincing victory away from home against West Ham United in gameweek 13 of the 2019-20 season. It was Jose Mourinho's first match in charge for Spurs. The Portuguese was appointed as the manager of Tottenham a few days earlier after Mauricio Pochettino was sacked. Here are the records held by Jose.
Spurs' 3-2 win against the Hammers has seen Mourinho script his 188th victory as manager in the Premier League. He is 12 wins away from registering 200 EPL wins. With this record, he could join the likes of David Moyes (204), Harry Redknapp (236), Arsene Wenger (476) and Sir Alex Ferguson (528) in terms of most managerial wins in the EPL.
Mourinho won as many points today versus West Ham, as former Spurs boss Pochettino mustered in his final 12 away Premier League games with the club (W0 D3 L9). Mourinho has managed to win all 37 of his Premier League games when his sides have been leading by two-plus goals at half-time.
Tottenham rode on first-half goals from Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura to gain a comfortable lead. A third from Harry Kane four minutes after half-time gave Spurs their first Premier League away win since January 20, However, West Ham rallied on late to get two goals at the death. Michail Antonio and Angelo Ogbonna were the goal-scorers for the Hammers.
Mourinho has won his first Premier League game during every spell in charge of each club in the Premier League. He is also the first manager to win a Premier League game in charge of Chelsea, Manchester United and Spurs.
