Antonio Conte insists that Spurs are “different” from his Chelsea team

7

Antonio Conte has emphasized that he does not want to make comparisons between his Tottenham team and his Chelsea team in previous years, but admitted that there is another momentum around his current harvest.

Spurs continued their fine start to life under Conte with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace on the second day of Christmas and climbed to fifth in the Premier League table.

The Italian said that the start of his career at Spurs and Chelsea has been different since joining the club in north London during the middle of the season, but is optimistic about how Tottenham will progress.

“I think this is different from the momentum in Chelsea. I do not like to compare different situations. [There is] too big a difference from my previous experience. Also because I remember very well that I started the season [when at Chelsea] and when you start the season you have to make a decision about your players and work with them, “said Conte via football.london.

“We have to keep using the confidence that will improve. We know very well that we have a lot of work to do. It’s good to score three goals with your attackers and good to keep a clean sheet but we have to work very hard to improve the situation. “

Wilf Zaha – a long-term transfer target for #THFC – cost Palace a chance to fight with his childish petulance.

But Lucas Moura’s professional and exceptional performance won the Spurs match.

All of Spurs’ top three found the back of the net on Sunday with Lucas Moura, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min on goal, with the Brazilian taking two assists, and Conte praising the qualities of his attacking trio.

“I think we have strikers who are very good at receiving the ball and creating something important, to make assists. At the same time, we have very good strikers when they have room in front of us to attack,” added Conte.

“We try to improve both situations. When you find a team that stays on its half of the field, you have to be good to use more quality. Do not run but use all your quality to make a good pass, to beat a man in a small space , but for us it’s great to have this type of striker.

“Steven Bergwijn is another player with these qualities. We have to keep working and keep doing this with the strikers. I’m happy today because they scored and they have to thank the rest of the team for working very hard to create chances.”
