West Ham United 2 vs 3 Tottenham Hotspur highlights 23.11

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho says he would "hate" anybody to say he had made an impact after their 3-2 victory at West Ham in his first game in charge.
"It's not about me, it's about the players and club."
Spurs midfielder Dele Alli, who had a hand in the opening two goals, said: "It has been a very difficult week, there's no hiding how much Pochettino meant to the players and in particular me.

"We did not really change too much [under Mourinho], just a few little tweaks, maybe a few changes in the way we press."

Mourinho said: "Dele was like the team - brilliant for 65 minutes and then paid the price of the time, so he went a little bit down [in terms of performance].

"It was the old Dele Alli, the Dele of a couple of years ago, that impressed not just England but the world. He did what I wanted him to do after two days of work.

"I tried to make it clear to him the spaces where we wanted him to play, offensively and defensively. He is an intelligent football player to do what we wanted. He was very important for the team. I am very pleased with his performance."

"I will hate if somebody say 'Jose made an impact'," he said after the win at London Stadium. "I made no impact. Nothing. I just helped them a little bit to win this match.

"I think the team had 60 amazing minutes, total control, total dominance - using the principle we brought to the training sessions.

"Then they went a bit down, physically. I'm not blaming the coaching staff they had. I'm blaming the nature of things, national team weeks. Some players only arrived back yesterday."
