How Manchester City beat Tottenham 2-0 to reclaim top spot in the Premier League

Postecoglou made some very interesting, if slightly cryptic, comments in his post-game press conference. It would be wise to assume that he is referring to the attitude around the club in the last couple of days.

“The last 48 hours have revealed to me that the foundations are quite fragile,” said the Tottenham manager. “The last 48 hours have revealed a lot to me and that’s okay. It just means I have to go back to the drawing board with some things.”

He was then pressed on whether he observed these things internally or externally.

“Outside, inside, everywhere,” replied Postecoglou. “It was an interesting exercise. It’s just my observations. You can make your own pretty accurate assessment of what happened.

“I understand, I probably misread the situation in terms of what I think is important in the effort to become a winning team, but that’s okay. That’s why I’m here.”
