Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino believes that his side have improved a lot defensively and this should start an improvement in terms of fortunes going forward.
Spurs made a poor start to the season after going winless in the first few matches of the campaign. However, they have now secured back-to-back victories after a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday. This was also the first home win of the season for Pochettino’s team. Summer signing Heung-Min Son, who was brought in from Bundesliga for over £ 20 million, scored the only goal of the game to open his account for Spurs.
Many expected a reaction from Crystal Palace, who came into the game after suffering a narrow 1-0 defeat against Manchester City in the previous game. It was expected to be a tough match and it turned out to be the case for the home team. There was not much to separate the two teams in terms of attempts on goal or possession. However, goalkeeper Hugo Lloris had to make some crucial saves in order to keep his team in the game. After the match, Pochettino praised the French international by saying that he is now the best goalkeeper in the Premier League.
The victory comes at a good time for Tottenham, who take on arch rivals Arsenal in the next game.”It was one of the best performances of the season. We thoroughly deserved the result.When you sign players you expect them to make a big impact in the team. We are very happy with him [Son].He has adapted to the team very well. After scoring twice in the Europa League he scored again and when you arrive at the club as a striker that’s very good. I am not concerned [about Kane]. Maybe he is a little bit because he’s a striker,” said Pochettino.
