Guglielmo Vicario makes Tottenham revelation after Chelsea defeat in emotional message

In the thrilling Tottenham vs. Chelsea clash, Guglielmo Vicario standout performance turned heads, despite conceding four goals.

Tottenham’s match against Chelsea  on Monday night had all the makings of an exciting contest, but few could have expected what happened. It’s rare to see a goalkeeper surrender four goals and be nominated for Player of the Match, but that’s exactly what happened.

Dejan Kulusevski’s early goal appeared to set the tone for Tottenham’s domination, but that changed when Cristian Romero was sent off for a challenge in the penalty box, allowing the Blues to equalize from the spot. The hosts’ woes worsened when  Micky van de Ven  and  James Maddison were injured, followed by another red card, this time for Destiny Udogie.

Despite that goal, Tottenham had chances, with  Eric Dier, Rodrigo Bentancur and Son Heung-min all failing to score. Then, in stoppage time, Jackson scored two more goals to complete his first Premier League hat-trick and secure all three points.

“It’s hard to analyse from a football perspective,” Postecoglou told the media after the match. “You’re left with the result which is disappointing. You don’t like to lose, particularly here at home. Super proud of the players’ efforts, will, determination and desire to try to get something out of the game. Then there’s the fallout from it from our perspective, personnel-wise. I guess we’ll deal with that in the coming days.”

Guglielmo Vicario may have gotten the most praise in the midst of all the pandemonium, as his consistent ability to sweep up behind the backline kept the scoreline significantly lower than it could’ve been. After the game, the goalkeeper resorted to social media to share his opinions.

Writing on Instagram, he said: “Difficult to say anything after that match. Even down to 9 men, we really tried. I’ve never lost 4-1 and have all our fans applauding us like that at the end. Thank you.”

It remains to be seen how the defeat will affect Spurs, but for now, they can take pleasure in their character, heal their wounds, and go again at the weekend.
