Tottenham news: For the fourth time already this season, Ange Postecoglou watched his team recover from a deficit in the Premier League, this time against sworn enemies Arsenal.
Tottenham can now claim to be the Premier League’s reigning comeback kings after breaking a significant record against Arsenal.Son Heung-min, the captain of Tottenham, scored both goals as they battled back from two goals down to earn a point in the North London Derby.
Tottenham has earned 14 points from its first six Premier League games this season, with four victories and two draws. In each of their league games thus far this season, Spurs have either kept a clean sheet or came back to win a game thanks to a combination of confidence and defensive sturdiness.
In addition to eight points already been recovered from deficits, clean sheets came against Manchester United and Bournemouth, while Spurs’ most recent comeback saw them set a new Premier League record. The club may now refer to themselves as the “comeback kings,” as stated on their official website, since the draw with Arsenal moved Spurs over Manchester United in the league for points gained from losing situations.
According to a club statement, “We have now taken more points from losing positions than any other side in Premier League history, despite having trailed twice in the match on Sunday’s north London derby. We moved ahead of Manchester United (427) and to the top of that particular table with that point. The top five is completed by Chelsea (360), Arsenal (392) and Liverpool (390).
Eight of the 14 points we have earned so far this season (57 percent) have come from losing performances, according to the team. The majority of league points earned under Ange Postecoglou have come with Spurs trailing by one goal, as the last statistic shows, and the 58-year-old has applauded the resolve displayed by his players this past weekend.
In an interview with SpursTV, he stated: “We’ve had to come from behind in three of our previous four away games, in addition to last week. Football-wise, we’re still very much in the early phases of development, but just the character of this group is showing immediately, and the spirit they have within the group, it’s incredible. It’s not something we want happening every week, but it is a testament to the players.
He said, “Led by Sonny [Son Heung-min], who had an unbelievable work ethic today, him and Madders [James Maddison] weren’t 100% going into the game, but with [Cristian] Romero those three are just leading in every possible way.”
