Jose Mourinho has been listed among the Premier League managers who could be sacked this campaign according to bookmakers Paddy Power.
The 57-year-old tactician recently guided Spurs to a 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion, however, he is still the third favourite to be relieved of his job at odds 5/1.
A goal each from Harry Kane and Heung-min Son handed the North Londoners the crucial victory over the weekend as they occupy the eighth position with 36 points after 22 rounds of games – four points off the Champions League qualification places.
The triumph stopped Mourinho’s men from losing their third consecutive Premier League game after defeats to Brighton and Chelsea in their previous top-flight outings.

After his side’s victory over the West Midlands side, the former Chelsea and Manchester United boss praised his players for their mentality and togetherness.
According to SunSport, he said:-
“I’m not used to losing three matches in a row and Tottenham is the same, so we have to admit that it was not a week where we felt very, very comfortable.
“But I was very positive because of what the players showed in this game. I knew that they would. I think we played very well but I’m speaking about the mentality the players brought to the game.
“The players are together, the players want to win, they are committed and today they went to the pitch only with one thing in their mind and that was to win the game.”
Jose Mourinho lost 2-matchs in a roll for the first time
