Planet Sport have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur have accumulated the third-most points in the Premier League since Antonio Conte took over as head coach at the start of November.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s reign at Spurs proved short-lived as the Portuguese coach was put out of his misery by the Lilywhites after their 3-0 loss to Manchester United at home in September.

While Conte managed to turn results around in his first couple of months in charge, the Lilywhites were plagued by inconsistency at the turn of the year, which became a source of much frustration for the Italian (Football.London).

However, Tottenham seem to have turned a corner over the past few weeks, having won four of their last five Premier League games and scored 18 goals in that process.

Planet Sport have now calculated where Spurs would stand if their campaign began the day Conte took over from Nuno.

It turns out that only Manchester City and Liverpool have accumulated more points than Tottenham since the start of November.

Here’s what the table would look like (all teams have played 20 games unless stated otherwise):

1. Manchester City – 53 points
2. Liverpool – 50 points
3. Tottenham – 39 points
4. Arsenal – 37 points (19 games played)
5. Chelsea – 34 points (19 games played)
6. Manchester United – 34 points
7. Wolves – 33 points (21 games played)
8. West Ham United – 31 points (21 games played)
9. Newcastle United – 27 points
10. Aston Villa – 26 points

Spurs Web Opinion

The fact that we have accumulated more points than Chelsea since Conte arrived is quite encouraging and suggests that we could challenge for the top three next season. However, the gap between the top two and the rest is quite significant and shows how difficult it would be for the likes of Spurs to mount a title challenge.
