Match Preview

Tottenham made a good start to life under Mourinho, producing a commanding first-half display and opening a three goal lead relatively easily.

The North London club were able to create a lot of goalscoring opportunities with the possession that they had and against an Olympiacos side who will likely be more than content to sit back and look to hit Spurs on the counter, they should be dangerous again.
