Michail Antonio has admitted that he is in awe of the kind of football that Ange Postecoglou has got Tottenham playing. 

Postecoglou came to Tottenham with a reputation for playing, possession-based, front-football football and Daniel Levy even admitted in the fan forum on Tuesday that the Australian’s famed style of play was one of the main reasons behind his appointment.

Most Spurs fans expected some turbulence at the start, given that Postecoglou’s teams have a reputation for starting slow at the beginning of his tenure.

Tottenham are even impressing their bitter rivals

However, the 58-year-old has managed to implement his ideas quite rapidly, with the Spurs players looking extremely comfortable in the system and seeming to be fully aware of their roles.

It remains to be seen how Tottenham will fare in the bigger tests that are to come soon, with clashes against Arsenal and Liverpool on the horizon, but Antonio is certainly quite impressed with what he has seen from the Lilywhites so far.

The West Ham striker said on The Footballers Football Show: “Tottenham are flames. The football they are playing right now is ridiculous. This manager has them playing unbelievably.”

One of the reasons why there will likely not be a meltdown from Spurs fans if and when the team goes through a bad run is precisely because of the attractive football the side is playing.

The supporters will be far more accepting of some poor results if they feel that the team is trying to get forward and score goals than they would be if Spurs were just sitting back with men behind the ball.
