Tottenham Hotspur suffered a 2-0 defeat against Manchester City in the Premier League clash on Tuesday night, with Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou condemning the behaviour of some Tottenham fans who directed chants towards Arsenal during the match.

Manchester City’s victory edges them closer to securing their fourth successive Premier League title, leaving them two points ahead of Arsenal as they head into the final day of the season. Despite the loss spelling the end of Tottenham’s Champions League qualification hopes, a section of the home crowd at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium seemed preoccupied with taunting Arsenal rather than focusing on the game.

Throughout the match, chants aimed at Arsenal echoed in the stadium, and even the goals from Manchester City’s Erling Haaland, which sealed the win, were met with celebrations from some Tottenham supporters. When questioned about the chants, Postecoglou expressed his disinterest, emphasising his sole focus on building a successful team at Tottenham.

“I just want to win and be successful at this football club, that’s why I was brought in,” Postecoglou stated. “How other people feel and what other people’s priorities are is zero interest to me. I know what’s important – building a winning team, and that’s what I need to concentrate on.”


Despite putting up a fight against the title-chasing Manchester City, particularly frustrating them for the first 50 minutes, Tottenham failed to capitalise on key moments, allowing Haaland to break the deadlock and seal the win with an injury-time penalty. Postecoglou acknowledged his team’s efforts but lamented missed opportunities that could have changed the outcome of the game.

“It was a tight game and in the big moments we weren’t able to capitalise and they were. I thought we were in the game the whole time, even at 1-0 we had a great chance to go level.

“In the second half we were chasing the game so they got a little more space but I thought we were well in it up until that point [the second goal]. “We lost the game so it was a missed chance for three points. We had the opportunities and we had to punish them.”
