Postecoglou Vows to Address Tottenham’s Lacking “Belief and Conviction” After Defeat to Chelsea

Following Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-0 defeat against Chelsea, manager Ange Postecoglou has acknowledged his team’s lack of “belief and conviction” on the pitch but promises to find a solution as their Champions League aspirations take a hit.

Spurs now trail fourth-placed Aston Villa by seven points, albeit with a game in hand. With challenging fixtures against Liverpool and Manchester City looming, Tottenham’s recent slump of three consecutive Premier League losses has put their top-four ambitions in jeopardy.

Postecoglou, who initially steered Tottenham to a promising start this season, acknowledges the team’s struggles, attributing them to a loss of confidence and assertiveness in their style of play. However, he remains determined to rectify the situation and restore Tottenham’s winning mentality.

The defeat at Stamford Bridge saw goals from Trevoh Chalobah and Nicolas Jackson secure a well-deserved victory for Chelsea. Postecoglou admitted that Spurs did not perform at the required level and lacked the necessary mindset to compete effectively.

While acknowledging the challenges ahead, Postecoglou remains resolute in his approach to turning things around, emphasizing the importance of hard work and dedication to regain Tottenham’s form.

Tottenham have games against Liverpool and title-chasing Manchester City among their remaining fixtures and have now lost three in a row in the Premier League.

“They’ve lost a little bit of belief and conviction in their football and that’s for me to fix,” Pos

“It wasn’t a great night for us. We didn’t play at the levels we needed to and didn’t deserve something from it,” Postecoglou said.

“We lacked belief and conviction in our game.

“I don’t know if it is low confidence, but we are not playing with the mindset we need to play the football we want to, and that is something I have to look at.

“It is on me to fix it. That is what we will be doing.”

Asked how he would “fix” Tottenham’s failing form, Postecoglou said: “Just hard work, mate, there’s no major formula. We will work hard and make sure we get it right.”

‘It’s what we wanted from the beginning of the season’

“In the way that we play and the way that we compete, that is what we wanted from the beginning of the season,” Pochettino said.

“Today we were so competitive. In this way we can grow and do better and improve in all the areas.”

Meanwhile, for Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino, the victory marked a significant milestone, managing his 400th game in English football. Pochettino, who previously led Tottenham to a Champions League final, expressed satisfaction with Chelsea’s competitive spirit and performance, highlighting the importance of consistency and improvement throughout the season.

As Chelsea continues to climb the Premier League table, sitting just two points behind seventh-placed Newcastle United, Pochettino remains focused on maintaining their competitiveness and striving for further growth and improvement in all areas of their game.
