Tottenham Hotspur made a nightmarish start to their Premier League campaign on Sunday.
It feels as though Spurs are on everybody’s lips whileAmazon’s ‘All or Nothing’ documentary continues to stream, but it was definitely a case of ‘nothing’ as opposed to ‘all’ last weekend.
That’s because Spurs suffered an unexpected 1-0 defeat at home to Everton, which marked the first time in Jose Mourinho’s managerial career that he’s lost on the opening day of the season.
Rocky start for Tottenham
Despite Tottenham’s 2019/20 problems and a pretty rudimentary transfer window, there was quiet hope around the club when you consider Mourinho’s record during second seasons.
And while losing on the opening day doesn’t exactly condemn their season to ruins, it certainly shows that there’s scope for Tottenham to experience another year of ups and downs.
Besides, there have been enough examples of things going wrong for Mourinho in the Premier League for us to know that proceedings can escalate incredibly quickly for the ‘Special One’.
Odds of Mourinho sacking
And that seems to be resonating with the bookmakers right now because the odds on Mourinho becoming the first Premier League manager to be sacked have plummeted down from 33/1.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson remarked: “It’s amazing how quickly things change in football.
“After ending last season so strongly, many were feeling positive about Spurs and Jose Mourinho this season, but one poor performance and result has seen the negativity return with a vengeance.
“While Spurs were atrocious against Everton on Sunday, it’s unlikely Mourinho will be next in line for the chop, particularly with so many other sack race candidates in the mix. “
