WHO’S THE MANAGER?
Postecoglou joined Spurs in June, three months after Antonio Conte’s departure from the club. Cristian Stellini and then Ryan Mason saw out the season as interim managers, with Tottenham finishing eighth and outside of the European places.
The 57-year-old’s career had mostly been confined to Australia prior to 2017 and he managed the Socceroos at the World Cup in 2014, before experiencing Asian Cup success the following year.
His spell with Yokohama Marinos in Japan attracted the attention of Celtic in 2021 and Postecoglou was much loved on the green side of Glasgow, claiming five of the six domestic trophies across his two seasons before moving south.
WHAT HAPPENED LAST SEASON?
Arguably United’s most impressive performance of the campaign saw us put Spurs to the sword at Old Trafford last October, with goals from Fred and Bruno Fernandes gleaning a 2-0 win on a night where we could have scored five or six.
Six months later, we raced into another two-goal lead after a similarly stellar showing in north London, as Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford made it on to the scoresheet this time.
Spurs rallied in the second half under Mason’s temporary management though, and rescued a point through efforts from Pedro Porro and Son Heung-min.
