TOTTENHAM boss Jose Mourinho has become just the fifth manager to reach 200 Premier League wins after his side beat Everton on Monday night.

The Special One has achieved the feat in the second quickest time – with only Sir Alex Ferguson racking up 200 victories quicker.

Along with Mourinho and Fergie, Arsene Wenger, David Moyes and Harry Redknapp have all hit a double ton of wins in the top-flight.

It took the ex-Real Madrid gaffer just 326 games to reach the magic 200, just four games shy of matching Ferguson’s astonishing record.

Meanwhile it took Wenger 332 games, Moyes 511 matches and Redknapp achieved the landmark in 536 Premier League outings.

Mourinho won 140 fixtures across two spells at Chelsea, while he claimed the three points in 50 matches during his spell at Manchester United.

And the victory against the Toffees was his tenth win in the league in charge of the North Londoners.

Commenting on his achievement, Mourinho said: “Not many managers work in three of the top football clubs in the country, and in the world.

“I was lucky enough to work for three of the biggest clubs in the country. When you are at one of these big clubs it’s easier to have these results.”

Given the fact Mourinho has managed in Italy with Inter Milan and Spain with Real Madrid since his first match in England in 2004, it is unlikely he will finish in the top two of managers with the most wins in the Premier League.

Once again it is Ferguson who sits top of the pile with a whopping 528 victories, followed by Wenger with 476 wins.

Redknapp is third in the list with 236 wins, with Moyes in fourth with 207 victories.
