The arrival of Antonio Conte at Tottenham has lifted the mood and provided new hope that the club can turn around a mixed opening couple of months to the campaign. 

Plenty of eyebrows were raised when Tottenham appointed the Italian in place of Nuno Espirito Santo, given his impressive track record of winning silverware at his previous employers. 

Straight away, Conte shifted the squad into his preferred 3-4-2-1 formation, with a big responsibility placed on the shoulders of wing-backs Sergio Reguilon and Emerson Royal. 

While it was a set-up that the Spurs players were not used to from the opening parts of the season under Nuno, the formation is already yielding positive results. 

In the matches following Conte’s arival, Spurs sit fifth in the form table having picked up 14 points from a possible 18, while having up to three games in hand over some sides around them. 

The tally means Conte is just one point off Nuno’s count of 15, despite having overseen four games less than the Portuguese coach. 

The switch of system has significantly improved Spurs on the back end having conceded just three goals, while 12 have been scored going forward. 

Spurs Web Opinion 

The improvement from Spurs under Conte is pretty clear to see and there is a direction at the club now when there previously wasn’t. It is still early days, but it is a good sign that the numbers going forward and defensively are yielding results when they previously weren’t.
