Tottenham Hotspur solidified their top position in the Premier League on Monday, following a decisive 2-0 victory against Fulham.
This win marks the club’s most robust start to a top-flight season in over six decades.
Son Heung-min, the team’s captain, was pivotal in the game, scoring his seventh league goal this season. He masterfully curled the ball into the top corner in the 36th minute.
This momentum was sustained into the second half, with James Maddison marking his first home goal for Spurs, thanks to an assist from Son, at the 54th-minute mark.
Tottenham’s recent surge in performance is noteworthy under the leadership of their new manager, Ange Postecoglou.
Still unbeaten in the league, they’ve garnered 23 points, giving them a comfortable two-point lead over both Manchester City and Arsenal.
On the contrary, Fulham appeared underwhelming in their approach, leaving them in the 13th spot with a total of 11 points.
This win was particularly gratifying for Spurs, considering the recent upset caused by Fulham when they knocked Tottenham out of the League Cup through a penalty shootout.
With such an impressive start, all eyes are on Tottenham and Postecoglou as they navigate the remainder of the season.
What Postecoglou said after the game
Speaking after the game, the new manager said, “It was a good result because Fulham are a tough team to break down. The second half wasn’t great and we didn’t play anywhere near the levels we can, we were wasteful.”
He also added, “You have to respect the game and if you are off it a little bit it can drag you down. We took a few liberties which I wasn’t very happy with. It was our worst 45 minutes with the ball.”
