The shocking stats that prove how much Jose Mourinho is struggling as Tottenham manager

Mourinho has struggled at Spurs since arriving

Eyebrows were raised when Jose Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino as Tottenham manager last November. 

There's no denying his record on the touchline is fantastic - spells at Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid proved that - but does the Special One really fit what Spurs are building?

That was the question many fans were asking at the time. Seven months on and we're still not sure.  

Since Mourinho arrived in north London, there have been shades of excitement. A 2-0 win against Manchester City in February proved that he can still beat the best. 

But there have been a lot of lows, too. Being knocked out of the Champions League by RB Leipzig 4-0 on aggregate and losing at home to Norwich in the FA Cup, for example. 

More recently, Spurs were beaten 3-1 by Sheffield United on Thursday night.

That was Mourinho's seventh Premier League defeat since arriving at the club - and it laid bare the terrible start he's made to the job - especially compared to his spell at Chelsea. 

Mourinho has struggled at Spurs

In his first two seasons at Stamford Bridge, the Special One lost just six times in 76 games. At Tottenham, he's already lost more in 20 matches. 

That's quite hard to believe and it shows just how much Mourinho has struggled at Spurs.

'Special Once'? 

Mourinho might not be the Special One anymore

GIVEMESPORT's Ollie Browning says:

Mourinho really has made a poor start at Spurs. His team often look lacklustre in attack and they've been leaking goals too - the defeat to Sheffield United proved that. 

Comparing other stats from his time at the two London clubs makes quite rough reading, too. 

Between 2004 and 2006, Jose took charge of 76 fixtures at Chelsea. He won 58, drew 12 and lost just six. 

Jose was a title winner at Chelsea

He picked up an average of 2.45 points-per-game and had a crazy win percentage of 76%. 

At Spurs though, it's nine wins, seven defeats and four draws from 20 games. That means Mourinho averages just 1.55 points-per-game and has a win percentage of just 45%. 

He's got a real tough job on his hands to turn things around and at this rate, he won't be delivering silverware to north London any time soon.
