Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly the favourite to lose his job amongst the Premier League managers. This is according to the report from the Daily Mirror. It was disclosed that Jose Mourinho is under serious pressure at Tottenham following the disappointing defeat at the hands of West Ham United in their London Derby clash at the weekend. Spurs were beaten 2-1 by hosts West Ham. The result ensured that West Ham United ended the weekend in the top four places on the Premier League table. The Hammers have been a revelation in the Premier League under manager David Moyes. David Moyes has been able to regain some of his managerial prowess at West Ham United following difficult spells at Manchester United and Real Sociedad in the Spanish La Liga. David Moyes was able to beat Jose Mourinho for the first time in his career with the 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon.

Michail Antonio returned to Premier League football to give West Ham the lead in the opening minutes of that game before Manchester United loanee Jesse Lingard came back to haunt his former manager at Old Trafford with the second goal in the opening minutes of the second half. Lucas Moura pulled one back for Spurs but they could not score the second goal that would have given them a point at least. While West Ham United are soaring high at fourth position, the result left Spurs in ninth position and with a lot of work to do to qualify for Europe next season. Tottenham Hotspur are still in the Europa League and are also in the Capital One Cup where they would face holders Manchester City. Manchester City have won the Capital One Cup in each of the last three seasons.

The Daily Telegraph recently revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are lining up RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann as replacement if they decide to sack Jose Mourinho. For now, his job is still safe as he has the backing of club chairman Daniel Levy. The next four games in the space of 12 days would definitely go a long way to decide his future. Spurs host Wolfsberger of Austria in the second leg of their last 32 having won the first leg 4-1 away from home before taking on Burnley (home), Fulham (away) and Crystal Palace (home) in the league.
