Antonio Conte argued that Tottenham played a good game on New Year’s Day against Watford after securing a 1-0 victory.
Spurs knocked on the door without any true conviction for 95 minutes before Davinson Sanchez popped up with a very late header to put the visitors ahead. Conte claimed that while Spurs played well and controlled the game, they need to improve their final ball.
Emerson Royal in particular was guilty of some poor crossing, while Sergio Reguilon on the other side was also wasteful at times.
Listen to what the Spurs boss had to say below:
🗣 "We played a good game, we controlled the game."

Spurs Web Opinion:
It’s the type of result you just take and move on. Spurs have a big problem when it comes to breaking down stubborn defences, especially against lower teams who don’t commit many bodies in attack. That is Conte’s next problem to solve.
