The former Celtic manager was in the dugout up against Mikel Arteta and Arsenal for the first time in the English Premier League as his side responded twice to going behind to secure a share of the spoils.


After attending his first North London Derby, Ange Postecoglou praised Tottenham’s “strong work ethic and outstanding character.”

The former Celtic manager faced Mikel Arteta and Arsenal in the English Premier League for the first time from the dugout, and his team came back twice after falling behind to secure a share of the points and keep their perfect league record. The August Manager of the Month has led his team to four victories and two draws so far, and he was ecstatic with how well his team played at a “difficult venue.”

Prior to captain Son Heung-min tying the score for the guests, Cristian Romero had given the Gunners the lead by putting the ball into his own net. After then, the home team’s Bukayo Saka converted a penalty kick, but Son scored again nearly immediately to save a point in the four-goal thriller.Ange remarked, “Credit to the players, I thought we were excellent today against a top team, at a difficult environment. Ange was speaking pitchside for The Review Show on SPURSPLAY. We had to earn our entry into the game, and I believe we adequately displayed all of its components.

“I thought we defended really well when we had to, we played our football, and when it didn’t work, we persisted, which was great, all supported by a strong work ethic and outstanding character,” the coach said.

“There were times when we had to be really resilient and strong, and I thought guys like Romero, Vicario, and Bissouma all stood up in those crucial situations,” he continued.

“Then, once we got into the game, I thought our football was outstanding because, once again, we were playing a top team and our possession, working our way through, and then we had the quality in the front third to capitalise.”

With Liverpool set to play his Spurs team in the upcoming round of fixtures, Postecoglou is facing a string of important games. The team of Jurgen Klopp is similarly unbeaten, having had five victories and one tie in their first six games. Then, just promoted Luton Town travels before the following international break.
