Ange Postecoglou press conference highlights – Tottenham boss on Son miss, Bentancur and Moore

By Staff

Ange Postecoglou is speaking to reporters after Tottenham Hotspur lost 2-0 Manchester City in the Premier League on Tuesday evening.

Spurs hosted Pep Guardiola’s team at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, in the knowledge that two wins from their two remaining fixtures would force Aston Villa to have to win their final game at in-form Crystal Palace in order to stop Postecoglou’s team from finishing fourth and qualifying for the Champions League,

There was also another side to matters as while a City win would take the visitors one step closer to lifting the Premier League trophy for a fourth consecutive year, a Spurs triumph or draw would hand the initiative to their north London rivals Arsenal on the final day.

Postecoglou was without Yves Bissouma for the final two games of the campaign with a knee injury, while Richarlison’s calf problem meant his season is also over. The Australian brought in Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur as well as Radu Dragusin with Pape Matar Sarr playing as a false nine of sorts.

Spurs played well for much of the first hour of the game but found themselves behind when Kevin De Bruyne fired a low ball across the six-yard box for Erling Haaland to tap home.

Tottenham had further chances, including a huge one when Son Heung-min ran clear, but it was City who doubled their lead when Pedro Porro brought down Jeremy Doku in the Spurs box and Haaland buried the resulting penalty.

Our Tottenham correspondent Alasdair Gold is among those putting the questions to Postecoglou after the game. Scroll down for his latest updates from the press conference at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
