Praise from Postecoglou as Spurs turn it around

Tottenham Hotspur v Luton Town – Premier League – Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – Reaction

Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 Luton Town 

Ange Postecoglou was satisfied with his Tottenham Hotspur side after they came from behind to see off a dogged Luton Town side by the odd goal in three in N17.

Tahith Chong handed the Premier League strugglers a shock lead in only the third minute. However, an own goal from Issa Kabore and a late Heung-min Son strike turned the contest the way of the North Londoners.

“I thought the performance was good,” the Lilywhites boss enthused. 

“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 – a 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.”

Postecoglou added: “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.”
