Kulusevski says he knew Tottenham would not lose yesterday
In a dramatic turn of events this weekend, Tottenham Hotspur snatched victory from the jaws of defeat in a thrilling encounter against Sheffield United. One of the heroes of the day?
None other than the resurgent Dejan Kulusevski, whose late-game heroics secured a 2-1 win for Spurs. While the match had its nail-biting moments, Kulusevski’s confidence and calm demeanour were crucial in shaping the final outcome.
Dejan Kulusevski, who endured a challenging 2022/23 season marred by injuries, has made an astonishing comeback this year. Last season, he mustered just two goals, a stark contrast to the five games into the new season where he’s already matched that tally.
Under the guidance of the newly appointed manager Ange Postecoglou, Kulusevski seems to have found his groove again. The Saturday showdown against Sheffield United had all the makings of a memorable encounter.
Tottenham, despite dominating significant stretches of the game, found themselves trailing after normal time. It was a moment where their unbeaten Premier League record hung in the balance. However, football is renowned for its unpredictability, and this game was no exception.
In the dying embers of the match, Richarlison breathed life into the Tottenham faithful by slotting home a goal in the 98th minute. His timely intervention not only drew Spurs level but also set the stage for Kulusevski’s moment of glory.

In the 10th minute of injury time, it was the Swede who seized the opportunity and hammered home the winner. A remarkable turnaround that left fans on the edge of their seats and the players in awe.
In a post-match interview, Kulusevski shared his perspective on those intense moments. His words exuded calmness and self-assuredness, qualities that undoubtedly played a role in his performance on the pitch.
“I was quite calm. It’s just a game of football, and when Richy scored, then we knew we would not lose. So, I had the ball, I did my thing, and I knew that I just had to make one good thing to score, and that’s what happened.”
