Tottenham kept their Premier League title dreams alive with a dramatic 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday night. An own goal from Joel Matip in the dying embers gifted the Lilywhites three points as they leapfrogged Arsenal into second place.
Following the game, Ange Postecoglou insisted that he would have liked to see his side put the game to bed earlier. The Spurs boss said: «I think I've been at pains to say that I don't have a schedule I'm marking it against. It is what it is. It's fair to say that we've had some significant challenges in the first seven weeks of the season and the way we've dealt with them I've been really pleased, including today.
»Obviously you want to put the game to bed earlier than when we did but sometimes when you score that late it just helps to continue to build that belief in the group and the spirit within the group that we have that in us to go to the last minute. All these things, they're not by design, it's just the nature of the game and I'm not sitting here thinking we're ahead of some schedule.
«I can understand why some people might have had that in their minds because they're making prognostications based on the information they have, but for me it's just not of interest because I don't know how far we can go with the group. We just need to keep pushing on.»
