(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou said Sunday’s north London derby at Arsenal will be a “great test” of his side’s flying start to the season.
While Postecoglou is well aware of the message a win against Arsenal would send to the rest of the league, he is keen to focus on the quality of the performance, rather than solely on the result.
“We’re five games in. I understand that for many people, they will see this as our first real test and I get that,” he said.
Similarities can be drawn between the rebuilding job Postecoglou has been tasked with at Tottenham and the work achieved by Mikel Arteta during the past four years at Arsenal.
Tottenham’s campaign opened with low expectations following Harry Kane’s move to Bayern Munich and concerns that former Celtic manager Postecoglou would struggle to adapt to the Premier League.
