Stephen Warnock has analysed how the 3-4-3 system that Antonio Conte used against Everton pulled the home side out of their defensive shape.
Conte had to make do with a point in his first Premier League game in charge of Tottenham as his side were held to a 0-0 draw at Goodison Park.
Speaking after the game, the Italian insisted that he was pleased with the effort and spirit that his players showed but admitted that they had to improve in the final third.
Warnock has now taken a closer look at how Tottenham’s wing-backs pulled Everton out of shape, how it allowed the Lilywhites to create overloads in attacking areas.
The former Aston Villa defender noted that the Spurs midfielders found more space in central areas of the pitch as Everton’s wide players had to cut out the passing options to Sergio Reguilon and Emerson Royal.

Spurs Web Opinion
There was quite a lot to like about our performance at Goodison considering that Conte and his coaching staff only had a few days on the training field with the players.
We will only get better as players continue to get a better understanding of their roles within the system over the coming weeks and months.
