Tottenham boss Postecoglou joins Guardiola & Ancelotti in exclusive club after Arsenal draw

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Ange Postecoglou, on Sunday afternoon, etched his name into the history books of English football.

Postecoglou, and Spurs, of course, marked their return to action a short time ago.

In the midst of a superb start to the campaign, the Lilywhites made the trip to The Emirates, for the latest edition of the North London Derby.

And, when all was said and done in a pulsating affair, Tottenham emerged with a hard-fought share of the spoils.

This came after Arsenal twice took the lead, only for the day’s visitors to battle back courtesy of a brace from captain Son Heung-min.

And though his side, in the end, came up short in their pursuit of all three points, Ange Postecoglou, as alluded to above, nevertheless secured for himself a special piece of history.

As per statisticians Opta, Tottenham’s headmaster today became ‘the fourth manager in Premier League history to see his side score at least twice in each of his first six games in the competition’.

Those to have done as much before him? Carlo Ancelotti (Chelsea), Pep Guardiola (Manchester City) and Craig Shakespeare (Leicester City).
