Every word Ange Postecoglou said about Harry Kane, Richarlison, Son absence and Ndombele injury

Your team had 30 shots on target to West Ham’s four, did we start to see some of your football there?

Yes I think so. From my perspective, that’s what we were looking for tonight. We’ve obviously been working really hard in training and I didn’t expect the boys to be super sharp because that’s the stage where you get your conditioning, but we’ve been working on things.

We want to see some of that out there and I think in both halves there was a real willingness from the lads to try and put the things we’ve been working on in place. At times it looked good, but we are still very much in the early days of trying to establish the way we want to play and our structures.

For me, the most important thing is that they try to implement it, and for the most part it was really good.

When it comes to that sharpness, did both of your centre-forwards, Harry and Richarlison, still struggle in that regard?

Potentially, but again, if we keep creating those kinds of chances, I’ve no doubt they’ll finish them off. They are both quality strikers. For me, results become secondary right now. How we play our football, what pace we play at, our structures are much more important than the results.

Of course there were some positives, not all positives, but certainly enough to say at least from my perspective that the boys are willing, trying to change the way we play.
