Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham fall to West Ham in Perth


Ange Postecoglou’s managerial debut at Tottenham Hotspurs got off to a rocky start in Perth, Western Australia, as the football club lost 3-2 to West Ham United in Tuesday night’s friendly.

Tottenham started off with defensive lapses allowing West Ham to go 2-0 up after 23 minutes in front of fans at Perth’s Optus Stadium.

Tottenham levelled the scores at 2-2 in the second half, only for West Ham to secure their victory with a 78th-minute winner from Gianluca Scamacca.

According to, although the final scoreline wouldn’t have pleased Postecoglou, the stats should bring a big smile to his face.

Postecoglou’s teams are known for their free-flowing, attacking football, and Tuesday night was no exception as Tottenham fans got a taste of what to expect when the season starts proper in August.

Tottenham unleashed 30 shots to four, including 12 strikes on target. They enjoyed 72 per cent possession and won the corner count 14-3.

Postecoglou was thrilled that his players embraced his ethos of attacking football.

“There was some positive things – not all positive – but there was certainly enough there to sort of say that the boys are trying, they’re willing to change the way we play,” Postecoglou said after the match.
