They also beat Fulham and the historical Postecoglou’s Tottenham went up alone!

Only for a while… she distanced herself from the top – where she now stands all alone – the awesome Tottenham of AGgelos Postecoglou!

The “spurs” prevailed 2-0 in the home London derby with the Fulham, in the game that completed the program of the 9th game of the Premier League. So they climbed back into first place after the weekend break, being in +2 from Arsenal and Manchester City. It is recalled that the “gunners” drew (2-2) with Chelsea, hence they lost ground (albeit small) in the race. Liverpool is closely following, in the fierce battle for the championship.

The 23 points that Tottenham now have are indicative a record for Postecoglouwho becomes the first new manager for a Premier League side to reach this harvest in the first nine ‘turns’.

In a purely competitive game, the hosts dominated the first half, with the second being more balanced. Finally, with a great protagonist Son they found a goal in each half, in an identical way: Both with a steal at a key point (after pressing) and a quick attack. In the 36′ the South Korean ace, after a pass from Richarlison, opened the scoring with a spot kick from the height of the large area – reaching 7 goals in this year’s championship, two less than the top scorer Haaland – while in 54′ passed to Madison which made the final 2-0.
