Tottenham’s 3-2 win over West Ham on Saturday was the start that Jose Mourinho needed in his new job. Despite the late goals for the Hammers, Spurs’ looked deadly going forward at times, particularly for their break-away second goal on 43 minutes.
Will Dele Alli rediscover his best form this season?
Dele Alli seemed revitalised, and WhoScored agreed, giving him a 7.55/10 for the game, which is the second highest rating they’ve awarded him this season. He bagged an assist and performed a brilliant piece of improvisation to make that second possible, so it seems like Mourinho has given him his confidence back.
The 23-year-old posted a picture of himself running to celebrate with his teammates, and fans were quick to praise him for the performance he put in. Many claimed that Mourinho has already brought the Englishman back to his best, with some even believing the new manager can take him to the next level.

You were on another level lad, loved the hunger and fight you showed throughout. José seems like he’s getting the best out of you.

You were outstanding today. Amazing what can happen when the gaffer knows your best position.

Get ready for those haters Dele, when Mourinho makes you elite. 💙

People saying Jose won’t like him, he’s a monster athlete with elite technique and is a killer in the box. Not every attacker has to be a lock picker with defense splitting passes, Alli is one of the most intelligent off the ball in the league & can go to next level under Jose.
