Ange Postecoglou ‘really disappointed’ with Tottenham Hotspur for second half display vs Fulham

Tottenham have the most touches in the opposition box in the Premier League so far.

Ange Postecoglou unhappy with Tottenham Hotspur’s second-half showing against Fulham

Tottenham Hotspur rallied to break through a determined Fulham defence to secure a 2-0 win in the Premier League on Monday night. The win took Spurs to the top of the Premier League, rekindling hope of what is a title charge.

Tottenham skipper Son Heung-min gave the home side the lead in the first half before an in-form James Maddison gave us a two-goal cushion in the second 45 minutes. Both goals came from Calvin Bassey’s errors but credit should be given to our stars for making the most of the opportunities.

While we were the better side overall, there was a marked drop-off in dominance in the second half. Fulham had opportunities to make the game more exciting and could have swung the momentum in their favour had they managed to score.

Speaking after the game via football.london, Postecoglou revealed his displeasure at the drop off in levels after the break. He even went on to call it the worst half-performance that Spurs have managed all season.

“Really disappointed with the second half. With the ball we were nowhere near the levels we have been all year. That’s probably the worst sort of 45 minutes with the ball we’ve had all year.”

While Maddison did manage to find the back of the net, Fulham had several of their own to make a dent and set up a nervy finale. If not for Guglielmo Vicario, Tottenham could have ended up regretting the chances they missed in the first half.

The match is not over until the final whistle is blown and Postecoglou is aware of it. He is well within his right to demand that Tottenham have better control of the game over the whole 90 minutes.

After all, all it takes is one moment for a tie to wing in the other team’s favour. Thanks to Bassey, we were the benefitting party last night. The shoes do not always have to stay on the same feet.

A Premier League title challenge is a marathon and not a sprint. There will be days when we are not at our best, but the sign of a top side is to still find ways to come out on top. Spurs did that on Monday and one can bet that it won’t be the last time this season that we will see that.
