Magic! Just one Match in charge, and Ange Postecoglou has this to his profile

Tottenham Hotspur have already broken a record from last season in Ange Postecoglou’s first competitive game in charge.

The report from The Athletic shares a statistic that highlights how Ange Postecoglou has already changed how Spurs played.

By the time the game had finished, Tottenham had 358 touches in the final third.

The best total they managed last season was 319 when they came from behind to defeat Bournemouth.

Postecoglou has a reputation for playing free-flowing, attacking football and that was on display at times yesterday.

Brentford are notorious for sitting back and then punishing teams on the counter-attack and succeeded in that guise for their second goal.

Yoane Wissa eventually finished off a move via a Van de Ven deflection that caught Spurs off-guard.

However, Tottenham were the better side in the second-half and Postecoglou will be pleased with the record they earned even if they didn’t secure all three points.

Spurs have plenty of formidable attacking players and they look like they could create lots of chances going forward this season.

Whether Richarlison will be the only senior centre-forward Postecoglou has to choose from by the end of the transfer window is another matter.

Choosing not to try and replace Kane would be a bold call, especially in a team who already look good going forward.
