53 days, 13 games and eight weeks since Jose Mourinho was pictured lifting the Lilywhite shirt at Hotspur Way, we finally saw some widespread criticism for the 56-year-old supposedly returning to his old dinosaur self, as his Spurs side succumbed to a 1-0 home defeat against Liverpool on Saturday evening.

When you take a step back and delve a little deeper into the context surrounding the Liverpool fixture, it's obvious that Mourinho's plan was more out of necessity than a sign of a return to his out of touch methods.

Mourinho's plan was highlighted by the half-time stats: Liverpool had made 254 more passes and had enjoyed 73.4% of the possession.

The Portuguese boss was already a talking point an hour before the game kicked off as he opted to start 20-year-old Japhet Tanganga in the Spurs backline, with the academy graduate lining up in every position along the defence throughout the game.

It was inevitable, wasn't it?

In the second period, Spurs took a much more balanced approach to things.

With the personnel he had available, Mourinho's game plan against the undefeated Reds was undoubtedly the right one - he provided his players with the best chance of succeeding against the world's hottest outfit.
