The Tottenham coach decided the formation never seen before against Chelsea, ‘Ange-ball’ is crazy

Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou used a unique 0-7-1 formation after being left with nine men in Monday night’s game against Chelsea.

The London Stadium witnessed a chaotic but brilliant derby on Monday night as VAR took center stage once again in the Premier League.

The hosts looked to be running away with it as Dejan Kulusevski opened the scoring inside six minutes.

However, Cristian Romero’s reckless tackle on Enzo Fernandez inside the box turned the game on its head. A lengthy VAR review followed, the defender was shown a red card and Cole Palmer equalized from the penalty spot.

Spurs are then down to nine men after Destiny Udogie was also sent off after two yellow cards.

But what happened next will have captivated football fans around the world, with Postecoglou’s side deploying a 0-7-1 formation to defend well against the Blues.


It seemed to be working until the 75th minute when Nicolas Jackson headed the ball into the net after a quick Chelsea counter-attack.

The Senegalese striker then scored two more goals to give the Blues a 1-4 win and finally break the Spurs defence.

Postecoglou’s line-up has surprised many, going viral on social media.
