What a terrible start to the year it has been for Jose Mourinho, after his Chelsea team lost 5-3 at Tottenham today.

Incredibly, for only the second time in his 715-game managerial career, a Mourinho team conceded five goals.

The only other time that this has happened was when his Real Madrid side were thrashed 5-0 by Barcelona in a La Liga match in November 2010.


It was also only the third time Chelsea had conceded five in a Premier League match, after losing 5-1 at Liverpool in September 1996, plus the 5-3 defeat by Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in October 2011.

At White Hart Lane, Chelsea were stunned by Spurs who put five past the league leaders who only remain top of the table alphabetically thanks to a John Terry consolation goal.
