Jose Mourinho makes his first win as Totteham HotSpurs beat West Ham

Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho have gave Tottenham Hotspurs their first away win in the Premier League since January in his first game as coach of the team with a 3-2 win at West Ham.
South Korea striker "Son Heung-min", Lucas Moura and Harry Kane got the goals for the visiting team as they made an instant impact after the sacked of Mauricio Pochettino on Wednesday.
"We have to make the right decision for the club," Mourinho said on Eriksen's future before kick-off, but his decision to field a front four of Dele Alli with Son, Moura and Kane worked.
English skipper Harry Kane had smashed the ball past beleaguered West Ham goalkeeper Roberto after just three minutes from Alli's pass but was denied by the offside flag.
An injury to first-choice stopper Lukasz Fabianski has coincided with a run of eight games without a win for West Ham with a string of errors from Roberto spreading a lack of confidence throughout the team.
The England captain was obviously furious at himself for not adding another on the hour mark as he dallied with just Roberto to beat and was dispossessed by a last-ditch challenge from Issa Diop.
Michail Antonio pulled a goal back for West Ham in the 17 minutes from time, but by the time Angelo Ogbonna scored West Ham's second six minutes into stoppage time it was too little, too late for the host team to come back.
West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini now waits to see if he faces a similar fate to Pochettino.
The Hammers were expected to challenge for European qualification in the Chilean's second season but instead are 16th and in danger of falling even closer towards the relegation zone by the end of the weekend.
Plenty of positives. A lot of hard work ahead.
