Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou gives his candid thoughts on Crystal Palace comeback

Ange Postecoglou expressed his satisfaction with Tottenham Hotspur’s performance against Crystal Palace, acknowledging the challenges posed by Palace’s deep defensive setup. Despite the difficulty in breaking down the opposition, Postecoglou praised his team’s patience and perseverance in continuing to push for the win throughout the game, eventually winning 3-1.

Reflecting on the game, Postecoglou highlighted the team’s patience and perseverance in the face of Palace’s defensive tactics. In the first half, Tottenham had to demonstrate composure and tactical discipline to patiently probe the opposition’s defence, even though they did not create many clear-cut chances during this period. Here is what Ange had to say via Football London:

“I was pleased with the whole game. First half was a difficult half for us because when a team sits so deep and we had to initiate the play, we had to stay really patient and make sure you work the opposition and I felt we did that. We didn’t create a lot but we had a couple of great chances.”

“You need that goal to break open a team that is going to sit so deep. I still felt like we were putting enough work into them that at some point we would be able to break them.”

However, Tottenham’s persistence eventually paid off as they continued to press forward in search of a breakthrough. Despite falling behind after Eze’s goal for Palace in the 59th minute, Spurs displayed resilience and character by refusing to let the setback derail their momentum.

From there, Tottenham seized control of the match, with Cristian Romero finding the net in the 80th minute to give them the lead. Son Heung-min then put the game beyond doubt with a goal in the 88th minute, securing a crucial 3-1 victory for Tottenham.

Postecoglou also spoke about the importance of perseverance and persistence in breaking down stubborn defensive setups like Palace’s. Despite the initial challenges, Tottenham’s relentless attacking intent and unwavering belief eventually wore down their opponents and allowed them to secure a vital win.

The manager’s satisfaction with Tottenham’s performance stems from their ability to maintain their focus and intensity throughout the game, even when faced with adversity. The victory not only demonstrates Tottenham’s resilience but also showcases their attacking prowess and ability to capitalize on key moments in the match.
