Antonio Conte reveals what improvement he’d like to see after Fulham win

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has plenty to be happy about after his side registered an impressive victory against Fulham in the Premier League, however, the Italian admitted he would like his players to be more clinical.

Spurs hosted newly-promoted Fulham earlier today and gave arguably their best performance of the season so far. The home side were dominant in possession, created plenty of chances in attack, and played with positivity throughout.

Goals from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Harry Kane put Tottenham 2-0 up, before Aleksandar Mitrovic pulled one back for the visitors. Spurs also had two goals disallowed for offside, with Heung-Min Son and Richarlison’s efforts being chalked off.

Ultimately, Spurs could and should have scored more goals today, and the 2-1 scoreline certainly flatters Fulham. The Lilywhites registered 23 shots throughout the game, with 10 of them being on target (BBC Sport).

Despite being generally happy with what he saw today, Spurs boss Antonio Conte did highlight some areas for improvement from his team. In his post-match interview (via Charlie Eccleshare), Conte had the following to say:

“I liked the performance. If I have to find a situation that we need to improve, it’s to be more clinical. If you have so many chances, you have to score more.”

Nevertheless, Conte was full of praise for his team’s performance, adding “I enjoyed a lot seeing the players play with authority and personality.”

Spurs Web Opinion

It was a fantastic performance from Tottenham today and the most important thing is, they got the three points and maintained the unbeaten start to the season. Yes, there should have been more goals for the home side, and it’s frustrating to see the clean sheet spoiled towards the end there, but the positives of today’s display far outweigh any negatives.

Both Heung-Min Son and Richarlison could have had a couple of goals each today, and once they get their first goal, we’re sure the floodgates will open. You get the feeling that clinical edge is just waiting to be unlocked, so let’s hope it happens soon.
