Middlesbrough vs Tottenham Post Match Reaction

Final Score- Middlesbrough-2 vs Tottenham Hotspur-1.

Att: 32, 623

MOM: Mido


Gareth Southgate: “We worked hard in pre-season and it was rewarded with a win in this match.

“We have showed that we are an attacking threat and we have some strength in depth on the bench.

“This is a great platform on which we must now build. For the first game of the season there is a lot of pressure but we delivered.

“We created a lot of chances after a nervy start.”

Gustavo Poyet ( Assistant Manager ): “We had a great pre-season but this is a different level.

“It was a difficult game and it looked like the team that scored first would get the three points and that is what happened.

“We did not defend well from set-pieces and that cost us the game.

“We have signed some new players and they are clever players and they now know what to expect and they have to believe in their abilities.”
