‘This? Wow’: Ian Wright is stunned by what he was told about the Tottenham player today

Ian Wright was stunned when he was told that Dejan Kulusevski’s goal in Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Sheffield United was the last winning goal in Premier League history.

The Arsenal legend praised Tottenham fans for the way they celebrated that winning moment as he took a shot at the “celebration police” who have previously had problems with players and fans enjoying such moments, he told Premier League Productions.

Scoring a winner with 100 minutes to go is crazy enough, but to be 1-0 down in the 97th minute and still win the game is even crazier,  Paul Merson gave in after the Spurs game even though it ‘hurts me’ to say it’.

Dejan Kulusevski was the man to receive recognition for his composed finish last weekend, but credit must also be given to Richarlison.

After speaking publicly about his mental health issues this week, the Brazilian star came on as a substitute against the Blades and was involved in both goals.

This could prove to be a defining moment for the player as Wright gave the following response when asked about Spurs’ historic goal.

“This one? Is this the new thing? Wow,” Wright responded. “Look at the crowd. What I loved seeing there was the rapturous applause and celebration of the Spurs.

“We (Arsenal) have already had one of those times this season (against Manchester United) where you scored late on, that’s what it’s about.

“In the last phase of a match you take it. Fans should enjoy it. People say “oh, the party police are coming out”. They say ‘why are they celebrating, it’s only five games?’. Is fantastic.”

Ange Postecoglou has only been in charge for a few months, but the atmosphere at the club has been changed by the former Celtic manager.

Not since the days of Mauricio Pochettino have Spurs fans felt so attached to their team.

It’s still early, but the mood ahead of this week’s game against Arsenal is as confident as Spurs have been.
