Tottenham fans are getting ahead of themselves having won four and drawn one of their first five matches under Ange Postecoglou.

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglu has permitted fans of the club to expect great things this season after an excellent start to life at the club. 

Postecoglu spoke to the media after his side came from a goal down to snatch all three points at home to Sheffield United. 

Spurs defeated the newly promoted side 2-1, with both goals scored in added time at the Spurs Stadium on Saturday.

“No, no, no, let them go, let them go and enjoy it,” he said, per Spurs Express. “My role is not to burst people's bubbles.”
