Spurs’ Ange Postecoglou extends home unbeaten streak to 50 games

Ange Postecoglou extended his unbeaten streak in home matches to 50 games, but only after Tottenham Hotspur scored twice deep in stoppage time to beat Sheffield United 2-1 in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Australian coach’s extraordinary record, which has spanned across previous stints with Yokohama F. Marinos and Celtic, looked about to end, but goals by Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski turned things around to continue the feel-good factor at the London club, which is second in the Premier League table.

Postecoglou’s sides have won 42 of their last 50 home games, and he was asked if that was one of the reasons Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy hired him.
