Conte himself had to sit the match out in Italy after he had his gallbladder removed earlier this week, leaving Cristian Stellini in charge of the match against Pep Guardiola (Daily Mail).

In the head coach’s absence, Spurs not only recorded a win and a clean sheet, but Harry Kane netted to become Tottenham’s all-time outright top goal scorer, inching ahead of the late Jimmy Greaves onto 267 (Daily Mail).

Conte called Kane on the phone during the dressing room celebrations to tell him how proud he was of the landmark and the victory.
