Tottenham Hotspur's Ange Postecoglou has enjoyed the best start by a new manager in the Premier League, but the Australian said a slipshod second half during the team's 2-0 win over Fulham had tempered the satisfaction of going top of the table.

The home fans were in a celebratory mood thanks to goals by Son Heung-min and James Maddison on either side of the break.

But Tottenham lost its hold on the game in the final half hour as passes went astray and tackles were missed, and it could have paid the price had London rival Fulham been more ruthless with its finishing.
