EPL: We’re not getting carried away – Postecoglou reacts as Tottenham go 5pts clear

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Ange Postecoglou has insisted his players are not getting carried away, after they defeated Crystal Palace 2-1 on Friday to open up a five-point gap at the top of the Premier League..

The result lifts Spurs to 26 points from their first 10 games.

When asked if he needed to make sure his players don’t get too carried away by their start, Postecoglou said: “No, I don’t sense anyone sort of floating about the place.

“There’s no reason for them to feel that way because when they come in every day they see the same thing. They see an environment where training is going to be hard, training is going to be competitive.

“It doesn’t allow [the players] to think about anything other than OK, they’ve got to be at their best every day to make sure that they keep pushing themselves, push each other to get to where we want to. To be honest, I think if you think about that stuff, you’ve probably got the wrong kind of people in your building.”
