Spurs 2-0 Man Utd: Postecoglou's Home Debut Victory Signals a New Era.

Updated: Aug 20, 2023

In an electrifying match, Tottenham clinched their first win with Ange Postecoglou at the helm, marking a fresh chapter post-Harry Kane.

Amidst pre-match protests against chairman Daniel Levy and owners ENIC, Postecoglou was greeted with resounding cheers.

As the action unfolded, Spurs showcased the vivid attacking style synonymous with the Australian coach and as the game between Spurs and United continued, both sides created numerous opportunities.

The impasse was shattered by Pape Matar Sarr, whose close-range effort found the net just four minutes into the second half.

As the clock ticked, Tottenham solidified their triumph, igniting ecstasy among home supporters at the 83rd-minute mark. Substitute Ivan Perisic's cross brushed off Ben Davies before nestling into the net via Lisandro Martinez.

The woodwork played a crucial role, denying the home side twice in the first half through Pedro Porro and Luke Shaw's deflection, while Antony rattled the upright for United.

A standout moment was new Spurs goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario's exceptional save against Casemiro, while Bruno Fernandes astonishingly missed an open goal.

The contest featured contentious penalty appeals from both teams. Cristian Romero's handling and the apparent tussle between a Spurs defender and Martinez were dismissed by the officials.

Ultimately, Tottenham's unwavering attacking determination became the pivotal factor that set them apart, signifying a new era under Postecoglou.
