Tottenham Hotspur – with a very weak match – were knocked out 1-0 by Chelsea in the Premier League final. Harry Kane’s injury has reportedly improved faster than expected, but he is still unable to play, which is a sensitive loss for Tottenham.
Since the national midfielder did not play, Tottenham were unable to win a league match, as they suffered a third consecutive defeat.
This is a noticeable stumbling block for the manager, who calls himself Special, who has lost two consecutive domestic league matches for the first time in his cutting-edge coaching career in four countries. Exactly after 370 domestic championships came two back-to-back defeats.
The time no opponent was able to win as a guest against Mourinho seems very far away, his world record, which is still alive today, lasted nine years, with 151 matches, until he was eliminated from Gijon at the hands of Real Madrid.
A section of the English press reported after Thursday’s defeat that his predecessor, Mauricio Pochettino, had won three of the 12 games before losing, as much as Mourinho has now. Incidentally, most of the crowd has also turned against him, with an extremist view that Southampton manager Ralph Hsienhotel, who scored nine goals in his match against Manchester United, would also be a step forward for Tottenham.
It would be a shame to argue with the facts, the results speak for themselves, but let’s not forget that Tottenham were still top of the league table in mid-December, and there were those who immediately described it as the tournament qualifier. The team reached the Carabao Cup Finals, where it will play Manchester City at Wembley in late April. However, the goalkeeper has collapsed in the past month and a half, winning just twice of nine league matches since December 16, making it hard even to reach fourth place.
Seven points behind Liverpool, who are still at the start of the Champions League. There has been no example of a streak of triple defeats like the one in club life since 2012.
Analysts say Mourinho is tired and plays a lot of safe matches with his team, which is invisible and boring for the fans. Bookmakers have also responded to the situation, as the star Portuguese coach has met Steve Bruce, manager of West Bromwich Albion, on both lists, both of whom have a factor of 3.5 times the first Premier League CEO becoming unemployed.
The press is much better for Thomas Tuchel, the new manager of Chelsea, who has scored seven points in his first three matches and not even scored a goal. The latter is the feat recently succeeded by Jose Mourinho, one of Chelsea’s (relatively) frequently changing managers, in 2004.
