GREAT PREDICTIONS: Gary Lineker and Rio Ferdinand deliver verdict as Tottenham win to go top of Premier League table

Tottenham Hotspur have risen to the top of the Premier League table following their victory in Saturday’s early kickoff.

Spurs won 1-0 against Luton Town thanks to a second-half goal from Micky van de Ven.
Tottenham won despite Yves Bissouma receiving a second yellow card in first-half injury time.

As a result, Ange Postecoglou’s troops have surpassed Manchester City and Arsenal at the top of the table.

Gary Lineker, a former Tottenham Hotspur player, responded with a seven-word reply on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Rio Ferdinand, another England star, delivered his assessment on TNT Sports, as transcribed by BBC Sport.

“A huge result for that Spurs dressing room,” Ferdinand remarked.

“There was previously a softness; a weak underbelly.”

“If they had come here last year and gone down to ten men, they would have lost that game.”

“Ange Postecoglou has instilled confidence, belief, and steel in this team.”

“They have shown that they can grind out results today.”
If Arsenal and Manchester City draw on Sunday, Tottenham will remain top of the Premier League table heading into the international break.

In our opinion
The matchup between Luton Town and Tottenham Hotspur screamed ‘upset’. The kind of game in which the hosts, encouraged by a raucous home crowd, frustrate their opponents, steal a goal, and cling on for all three points.

Indeed, there were occasions when it appeared that it would happen, and with Bissouma’s dismissal, it’s almost as if the stage was set.

Postecoglou, on the other hand, had different ideas. Tottenham didn’t exactly accelerate, but they had the confidence and guts to grind out the victory.

This is something that all of the elite teams have. They’ll swat some opponents away, but others will be more like a pushover try in rugby, with one scrum pack pushing the other over the line.
