During the summer transfer window, Johnson, who previously played for Nottingham Forest, joined Tottenham and scored his first goal against Wolves in the Premier League. At Molineux, the 22-year-old gave Spurs a 1-0 lead.
But Postecoglou’s team suffered a late blow, losing 2-1 as a result of goals from Mario Lemina and Pablo Sarabia in injury time.
Postecoglou said that Johnson “definitely” has goals in him, recognizing his potential. The manager did concede, though, that Johnson’s Tottenham career has had a rough beginning.
The 22-year-old attacker suffered a setback when he was forced to miss almost a month of play because of a thigh injury he suffered during an Arsenal game at the end of September.
Johnson persevered through the difficulties and made his comeback to action at the end of October. Since then, he has started for Spurs in their last two games against Wolves and Chelsea.
I’m hoping so. It is not the exclusive metric. Postecoglou stated, “He’s one of the players who, in my opinion, might have contributed a little more to our cause in the first half (against Wolves), but Brennan hasn’t really got a clear shot at it.
“He’s had a really rough start to his career for us, but I believe that the more opportunities we can give him, the more potential he has.
Although he hasn’t played much football, you could see near the end that he ran out of legs. He has more of a goal threat in him.
