Jose Mourinho guided Tottenham Hotspur to a 2-0 victory over former Premier League champions Manchester City last weekend.
A goal each from Heung-min Son and Giovani Lo Celso were all the North Londoners needed to clinch maximum points after the regulation period.
The triumph ensured Spurs rise to the top of the log for the first time since August 2014, it is also the first time they've ended the day top of the league this far into a campaign since January 1985.
Though Harry Kane was not part of the goalscorers in the game, he was however excellent after providing an assist for his side's second goal.
Stats show that the 27-year-old has played games since the Portuguese arrived a year ago - scoring 27 goals and 18 assists according to Give Me Sport.
And Kane's first meeting with Mourinho is now making rounds on social media amid the Englishman's superb form.
Mourinho was quoted to have told Kane that he cherished his relationship with his predecessor but also listed what he wants from the striker while at the club.
"We have to build also your status in that direction. My profile, I am a little bit like that as a coach. My dimension is universal and by being with me I think I can help you to… [makes explosion gesture]. What I don’t accept, because it is my nature, is to be here and win nothing.
"But I feel that we can because of you. You have better players than I had at Manchester United. The club has a lot [of potential] to explode."
Mourinho seems very serious when he promised to win laurels for Tottenham during his reign at the club.
