The Jose Mourinho era got off on the right foot last weekend, with Tottenham Hotspur winning a league match on the road for the first time in almost a year, holding on against West Ham United. While one match is not quite enough to declare the team fixed, it was definitely a positive sign to see some new life in many of the players.
Spurs will look to continue this momentum against Olympiacos on Tuesday. After drawing 2-2 in Greece two months ago, Olympiacos has not recorded another point in the Champions League Group Stage. A win would secure Tottenham’s place in the Round of 16; a draw will likely be sufficient as well, but will depend on the outcome of the other match. No doubt, the home side will be going for all three points.
Mourinho’s squad was lively on Saturday, looking impressive on the counter and opening up when in possession. It was just a glimpse of what his overall tactics might look like going forward, but an encouragement to those who feared a boring, reserved philosophy that has been deployed in the past.
Facing Olympiacos in London is much different than in Greece, and this is a winnable match for Spurs. Despite all of the early-season drama and struggles domestically, three points Tuesday would boost Tottenham into the knockout round for the third season in a row, a huge testament to the elevated standard of the club.

- Absolutely no links to illegal streams. They’re bad and they get us in trouble. Violators will be warned or banned.

- Along those lines, outright abuse of players or match officials is also not allowed. It’s fine to say “wow, that was a really bad call,” but it’s NOT okay to direct copious amounts of abuse in the direction of said official over a call you did not like.
- Treat other people in the match thread the way you would want someone else to treat your grandmother. Be nice. Observe Wheaton’s Law. This is a community of fans, not an un-moderated message board.
- NO SPIDERS!!
- Finally, while we don’t have a rule against profanity, please try and keep the naughty words in check. Also, language that is sexist, racist, or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted and you will be immediately banned. This is an open, supportive community.
