Tottenham Has The Character Of A Top Side, According To England’s Captain.

Tottenham Hotspur have been urged by James Maddison to continue performing like a “top team” as they enter the international break unbeaten in the Premier League.

Spurs defeated Manchester United, Liverpool, and Arsenal in their first eight matches in league play under new manager Ange Postecoglou, earning 20 points out of a potential 24.

Tottenham’s best start to a league season since winning the Double in 1960-61, but they were obliged to produce a different style of performance on Saturday in a hard-fought 1-0 win at Luton, when they played the entire second half with 10 men.

“You get the same three points here as you do when you beat Liverpool and Manchester United at home,” Maddison added.

“Sometimes you have to dig deep and show the grit and determination. People are always asking top teams, do they have that side to them? The top teams all do and we want to be a top team. I’m so happy we showed that.”

Ex-Celtic boss Postecoglou has only worked with this group of players since July, but they have quickly taken to his front-foot, attacking philosophy.

Spurs have scored 18 goals in the Premier League with summer recruit Maddison involved in seven and topping the assist charts with five so far after he set up Micky van de Ven’s winner on Saturday, but he insists they remain a work in progress.
