Postecoglou Adamant Spurs Will Get Through Tough Period

After going unbeaten in their first 10 games of the season, Spurs have now lost three games on the spin.

Sunday's 2-1 home loss to Aston Villa has seen the North London side drop out of the top four.

Injuries and suspensions have robbed Spurs of some key players, with 11 first team players unavailable for the loss to Unai Emery's side.

Postecoglou was however satisfied with the performance of his boys and believes they will come through this tough period soon.

Postecoglou reflected: “It is just the situation we’re in at the moment, but we’ll get through it.

“It might take a little while, but we’ll get through it and as long as we show the same intent and play the football we did today, I’ve got no doubt when we come out the other side, we’ll be a very good football team.

“We had four full-backs out there so we didn’t really have the height, which we knew would be an issue for us today but you kind of take those calculated risks with the flipside of it being that some of our football was outstanding today.

“I mean some of the goals we could have scored would have ended up being showreels for us in the way we want to play our football, so for me the positives definitely outweigh the negative of the result.

“We’ve just got to make sure the players stay focused on what’s important right now and you need to win games of football to keep yourself in the mix to be in a strong position come the end of the year, but right now we’re still building a side.

“What’s more important is the way forward has to be with what the end goal is in mind and today was about trying to play the football we want to play.

“If we fell short, we fell short but I didn’t think we fell short today. I thought it was just fine margins for us and not getting the rewards.”
