The days of José Mourinho's parked bus are dead. 

Mourinho is desperate to demonstrate that his miserable stint at Manchester United was nothing more than a minor blot on his stellar copybook, and the Portuguese master is already banishing any pre-conceptions that Tottenham Hotspur supporters had upon his appointment.

The new Spurs boss has been labelled as an old-fashioned, out-of-touch coach in the modern era, but his fourth spell in England is proving to be his most exciting yet.


Mourinho's free-spirited and charming persona has produced fantastic results since his arrival at Tottenham Hotspur, and the Lilywhites arguably put in their best performance yet under their new coach on Saturday afternoon. 

Spurs destroyed Burnley by five goals to nil, and statisticians ​Opta revealed that Mourinho's new squad is already beating the records set by his goal-shy Man United side of old. 

It was the first time since January 2015 that a Mourinho side scored five goals in one match (Chelsea 5-0 Swansea) - something his ​Manchester United team never achieved.

Since replacing Mauricio Pochettino at the start of November, ​Spurs have scored at least three goals in four of their five games under Mourinho, their only defeat coming at Old Trafford to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Man Utd. 

The London club's convincing victory over Burnley lifted them to sixth in the league table, but the dominant result will have come as no surprise to those who had taken a closer look at Mourinho's personal record over the Clarets. 

The ​ex-Chelsea boss has never lost a Premier League game against Burnley (P8 W5 D3 L0); and he only holds a better record over ​Swansea, against whom he is undefeated in nine matches. 

So, constant hammerings , one might be led to believe. Wrong. 

​Burnley were Mourinho's bogey team when the Portuguese boss was managing at home, as Sean Dyche's men had held them to draws in all three previous meetings. 

José finally had the last laugh though. As always.
