Tottenham's Postecoglou: Present Focus Despite Lead
Tottenham Hotspur, currently leading the Premier League standings and maintaining an undefeated streak this season, displayed a cautious approach towards their prospects as manager Ange Postecoglou stated his focus on the team's daily performance rather than long-term aspirations. Following their recent victory against Crystal Palace, which marked their fourth consecutive win, the team is set to confront Chelsea, although the Australian manager remains grounded and emphasizes the importance of concentrating on present challenges.
Postecoglou asserted, "I'm not so much a dreamer, I'm very much in the reality of day to day and what's important to us. Thinking beyond that doesn't really serve any purpose."
While Postecoglou stays pragmatic, he encourages the Tottenham fanbase to relish the team's exceptional season, acknowledging the significance of providing supporters with hope and enthusiasm. However, the manager reiterates his commitment to the team's daily routines and tasks.
With formidable opponents lined up, including Chelsea, Aston Villa, Manchester City, and Newcastle United in their upcoming matches, Postecoglou emphasizes the significance of staying focused on each immediate challenge. Despite currently leading the table with a two-point margin over Arsenal and Manchester City, and with Liverpool trailing behind in fourth place, the manager underscores that their current league position does not define their approach.
Offering insights into the team's injury situation, Postecoglou mentioned the status of Ben Davies, who sustained an ankle issue during the match against Palace, and Destiny Udogie, who suffered a muscle injury in the previous game against Fulham. While Davies remains uncertain for the next match, Udogie's availability remains a 50-50 possibility at this stage.
