Press conference with Ange Postecoglou, Tottenham manager, discussing Arsenal, injury updates, and Richarlison

Speaking to the media ahead of Sunday’s Premier League North London Derby matchup against Arsenal is Tottenham Hotspur’s head coach.

Ange Postecoglou is preparing his Tottenham Hotspur team to visit Arsenal this weekend by conducting his first pre-North London Derby press conference.

The Australian will be experiencing the Emirates for the first time and the rivalry for the first time, however he is no stranger to the intensity of a British local derby having presided over several Old Firm Derbies with Celtic against Rangers.

Now that the Premier League is underway, Spurs and Arsenal will square off while holding down the second and fourth spots in the standings, respectively.

Both teams are unblemished, having won four and drawn one of their five games thus far.

Ivan Perisic has an anterior cruciate ligament injury, which the club has stated will prevent him from playing for the rest of the season after surgery, although the Croatian is believed to be targeting a return a month or two before that.

Postecoglou will discuss this injury and provide updates on the most recent injury news.

The Tottenham manager will also look over his possible starting lineup for Sunday. Richarlison, who came off the bench to spark the team’s thrilling comeback against Sheffield United last weekend, has made a strong case for himself to start.

Prior to the important derby match, Postecoglou is being questioned by our Spurs correspondent Alasdair Gold.

For his most recent updates from the press conference at Hotspur Way, scroll below.

He’s just had one week of training, to be fair to him. Last week, he had two sessions.

For the U21s, we gave him game time, and he has already completed a full week of training.

Although it is wonderful to have him on board, there are no expectations for him.

We need to give him some time to adjust, get him training more frequently, and get him in a game or two for the U21s, but we have been quite impressed by the way he has handled things thus far.

Additionally, when we watched him the other night, he shown qualities such as tremendous movement and is a true number nine.

I’m just trying to be who I have been my entire life, Postecoglou said in reference to ensuring sure a young Spurs supporter had the opportunity to express his question during this week’s supporters’ forum.

He was merely a young man who want to inquire. We were there for that reason, so it wouldn’t harm to ask one more inquiry.

Never be proud of doing the right thing, advised a well-known college coach.

Everyone from the previous week is doing well.

Two or three weeks away for the longer ones. Bryan Gil, Lo Celso, and Bentancur should gradually begin participating in training over the coming weeks.

Ivan in particular will find it disappointing, so yeah.

One of those harmless things that can occur during training. I’ve only known him for a short time, but it’s clear why he’s held that position for so long.

We have been quite disappointed, both because he has been terrific for us and because the group lacks significant experience and because he has a fantastic sense of perspective.

He has a great sense of self, so I have no doubt that when he returns for club and country, he will be better than before.
