Michael Owen praised Tottenham Hotspur under Ange Postecoglou for their ‘bravery’ against Arsenal on Sunday.
You would anticipate the home team to be ahead and vying for the victory in the closing seconds of the game.
And as Arsenal was attempting to secure the three points, this freshly formed, offensive-minded Tottenham team was matching them.
As reported by Premier League Productions (24/09/23 at 7:10 pm), Michael Owen observed’six’ Tottenham players bombing forward in stoppage time and said it was ‘amazing’ of Ange Postecoglou to employ similar strategies at the Emirates.
While Tottenham has had trophy-winning managers in their dugout in the past, this method just hasn’t worked, and the defensive management style of these managers is also a problem.
In any case, everyone is impressed with Tottenham’s front-foot style of play, despite the fact that they are still unblemished in these early exchanges.
Tottenham’s style of play
“Six bodies were already on the ground when the referee blew the final whistle, and a seventh one arrived within a few seconds.
“Away at the Emirates, it’s absolutely wonderful. I adore the new manager’s initiatives. We won’t learn anything if we just sit back, Postecoglou stated before the game, and I embrace that. I genuinely think that.
“You can’t just go and sit back behind the ball in every game you play if you want to progress as a club, and if you’re Tottenham, and your objectives are to be a very good team. You must take chances.
“You might lose by a significant margin once or twice. In this way, you develop and learn. I admire his boldness, and I believed Tottenham had displayed great bravery by earning the point.

the boldness and freedom displayed by the former Celtic manager, the style of play he introduced to the team.
It has gained support across the board at Tottenham, who on Sunday more than earned their draw against Arsenal and likely would have won had they played better in the opening minutes.
