An angry Ange Postecoglou interrupted

Tottenham Hotspur’s club reporter to shoot down his suggestion that the team had played well during the defeat by West Ham United, claiming unfounded positivity “is part of the problem”

Cristian Romero scored early for Spurs, but Postecoglou’s side once again threw away

Postecoglou’s side once again threw away their lead as second-half goals by Jarrod Bowen and James Ward-Prowse sealed a 2-1 win for the away side. Tottenham are the first team in Premier League history to drop points from a winning position in five consecutive games.

At full-time, Postecoglou was interviewed pitch-side by Paul Miles, who said: “You see the result and then you forget how good we were in the first half,” but the Australian head coach interrupted the club reporter.

Ange Postecoglou hailed the high standards of “tired” Tottenham captain Son Heung-min after his late goal earned a 2-1 home win over Luton. Spurs were able to get their Champions League qualification hopes back on track with a comeback victory against Luton after the visitors took a third-minute lead through Tahith Chong.

I thought the performance was good. I think we made the game pretty difficult for ourselves. We certainly had enough chances and we controlled the game pretty much from start to finish, but obviously when the scoreline is as it is, disappointing goal we conceded. That was the highly disappointing point of the day. I just thought it was preventable,, but aside from that I thought the lads handled it really well in the second half.
There was a bit of anxiety around the place, every game now for every club there will be because there’s extra significance, but I thought the lads stayed really calm during that process. Kept playing our football and probing and eventually got their rewards.
Yeah, he was good. We felt that in the first half deki was probably coming inside a little bit too much and we felt that Timo was certainly getting some opportunities down the left-hand side and if we got Brennan on the right-hand side that he could equally be a threat. I thought both wingers in the second half were outstanding.
