The season in one word | Deathspiral

Star of the show | Harry Kane

Biggest let down | Jose Mourinho

His tenure unravelled in all-too-predictable fashion and he left Spurs as the only major club where he has failed to win silverware.

Game to remember | Manchester United 1-6 Tottenham (4/10/20)

The 6-1 drubbing at Old Trafford was Spurs at their brilliant, attacking best and suggested Mourinho may be about to capitalise on the unusual conditions of this season.

Game to forget | Dinamo Zagreb 3-0 Tottenham (18/3/21)

Rising star | Alfie Devine

Remember the name. The teenager became Spurs youngest-ever goalscorer in the FA Cup win over non-League Marine.
