TOTTENHAM 2 (Richarlison 90+8, Kulusevski 90+10)
SHEFFIELD UNITED 1 (Hamer 74)
ANGE POSTECOGLOU has made it clear that wherever he has been, his major objective has been to stamp his style on the club, and that fact that his brand of aggressive, attacking football aligns totally with Tottenham's desire to regain their 'identity' could make for a perfect fit.
The gruff Aussie, untested at Premier League level, was not everyone's first choice when he was appointed Tottenham manager in place of Antonio Conte in the summer.
But the transformation around the club, from performances on the pitch to the mood music among the fans, has been rapid and dramatic.
The Tottenham Hotspur stadium had become something of a sombre place during the darkest days under Conte and Jose Mourinho, with their negative football and patchy results.
But it was rocking again on Saturday night, as it had been when Manchester United were put to the sword a month ago, after another dramatic and enthralling match.
The United side beaten this time were from Sheffield, and it took two goals deep in stoppage time to turn things around for Tottenham, who were trailing to Gustavo Hamer's opportunistic strike in the 74th minute.
But with 12 minutes of stoppage time added because of the visitors' repeated time-wasting, Postecoglou's side showed the belief, resilience and desire that he has instilled in his players and their supporters.
Roared on by the home crowd, Spurs hit back to take all three points and move into second place in the table with their fourth successive victory.
Richarlison, so recently a troubled soul, was all smiles after heading the equaliser in the 98th minute and then setting up Dejan Kulusevski for the winner.
