Finally, the Portuguese coach experienced defeat for the first time against David Moyes.

David Moyes broke the curse of his failures against Mourinho with

West Ham

win over Tottenham in today's match.

The Hammers beat Spurs 2-1 at the London Stadium with two goals from Michail Antonio and Jesse Lingard, and a single goal from Lucas Moura was not enough to give Mourinho's side points. With this victory, West Ham reached fourth in the table, passing Chelsea, and Moyes was able to break his 16-year curse against Mourinho.

Mourinho, who previously coached Manchester United and Chelsea in the Premier League, has never lost in 15 games against Moyes. In those 16 games, there were 9 defeats and 6 draws for Moyes, but in the end he was able to defeat his Portuguese rival with West Ham.

Mourinho remained unbeaten against Moyes more than any other opponent, but eventually the curse was broken and now Tottenham are well aware of the danger of ending the season lower than the Hammers.
