Tottenham started the season looking like a struggling team, as they were beaten 1-0 by Everton at home.

However, Spurs have looked a different side since the opening day defeat and have since picked up 20 points from a possible 24.

Jose Mourinho has guided Spurs to currently stay top of the Premier League table, and former Spurs coach Tim Sherwood believes that Mourinho has brainwashed his side to become this good.

“He’s found a way with the group of players he has,” Sherwood told talkSPORT.

“He’s bought very well, Reguilon has been a good signing at left-back, but [Pierre-Emile] Hojbjerg for me has been the best signing. He fits into the style and just protects the two centre-halves.

“Jose has brainwashed his players to believe they have to work to achieve something – they need to win trophies, this group of players.”
