Postecoglou Vents At Spurs’ Second-Half Display Despite Going Top

Despite Tottenham’s 2-0 victory over Fulham to take the top spot in the Premier League, Ange Postecoglou was incensed at the team’s performance.

James Maddison and Heung-Min Son scored goals before halftime to put Spurs two points ahead of Manchester City and Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Postecoglou said was not pleased with the show as a whole.

It was a positive outcome, he said Sky Sports. Although Fulham is a difficult team to beat, we performed admirably against them in the first half.

“I believe we probably ought to have scored a second and a third goal given the opportunities we had.

We didn’t play to the best ability in the second half, which was our poorest possession period of the season and a very wasteful use of the ball.


“Even without the ball, we were quite well. There is still a tonne of work to be done.

“You must always have reverence for the game. I’ve lived in this world long enough to realise that even a small amount of deviance may quickly wear you down.

“We didn’t stay true to the style of football we want to play and we took some liberties with the game which I wasn’t happy with.”

With 23 points after nine games, Postecoglou broke the record for points won by a new manager tonight.

However, the Australian was eager to ignore the personal achievement.

“I don’t take stock, not after the second half,” he continued. There’s just too much to get done.

“I’m happy with how things have started; well done to everyone involved. Although there were many reminders that there is still work to be done, we are where we are because we deserve to be.”
