Ex-Manchester United manager José Mourinho will begin his reign as Tottenham manager when they tackle West Ham this Saturday and he hopes to start on a winning note.
The Portuguese manager is expected to pick maximum points judging by the Hammers’ current form which has seen them recorded two draws and four defeats win in six matches.
The race for a top-four finish is becoming too intense and the former Real Madrid boss can’t afford to drop points against lesser opponents if he must feature in next season’s Champions League competition.
Meanwhile, Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has told Tottenham’s ball boys what to expect from their newly appointed manager.

According to the England international who was once a ball boy at Stamford Bridge, Mourinho often tells ball boys to keep hold of the ball for a while whenever his team is leading their opponents.
“If we were winning in Champions League games then he (Mourinho) would tell us to keep hold of the ball and not to throw it for so quickly!” he said.
In other news concerning Mourinho and his new position as Tottenham boss, reporters are linking the Portuguese with a move for former United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovich in January.
The 38-year-old worked with Mourinho at Old Trafford and some highly-rated transfer podcasts believe a reunion is not impossible before the end of the campaign.
