Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou is full of praise for Everton goalkeeper Jordon Pickford
According to BBC, Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou was full of praise for the Everton goalkeeper Jordon Pickford after he made incredible saves to deny Spurs a much-needed victory at Goodison Park.
“[Jordan] Pickford pulled off two or three good saves, we got two but just couldn’t get the third.”
With the final whistle, Ange Postecoglou’s face was desolate, and this makes the right sense. Two moments of inspired brilliance from former Everton forward Richarlison had put Spurs well on the way to securing the sixth away win of their season.
However, the match ended in an annoying draw, thanks to Jordan Pickford’s impressive saves, Everton’s relentless efforts, and the opposing team’s susceptibility to set pieces.

Spurs could have secured their victory well before it slipped away, if not for Pickford’s performance. He made some impressive saves against Pedro Porro, James Maddison, and Richarlison as the away team kept putting pressure on the home defense.
Everton deserved the equalizer for their hard work and determination, although Spurs posed a greater threat. The dynamic Werner once again excelled down Everton’s right flank, delivering a precise pass to the talented James Maddison, who expertly redirected the ball towards the opposing team’s number 9. Richarlison unleashed a magnificent shot from the edge of the penalty area, leaving Pickford helpless as the ball soared into the top corner of the net.Ange Postecoglou was disappointed after the draw against Everton.
On the other hand, Maddison’s composure was truly remarkable in the intense match at Goodison. He orchestrated several impressive plays for Spurs and displayed great finesse in assisting Richarlison’s second goal. If the attacking players had been as skillful in crucial moments, Spurs could have taken a commanding lead before Branthwaite’s late goal.
