Conte: The manager’s reaction after loosing to Tottenham Hotspur

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was quick to praise his side as their winning run came to an end on Wednesday night.

The West London club were targeting a record 14th consecutive Premier League win when they arrived at White Hart Lane to take on Tottenham Hotspur.

However, their streak was broken by Spurs who had Dele Alli score twice in a 2-0 triumph.

Conte was asked whether he would now look to alter the 3-4-2-1 (or 3-4-3) formation that has allowed his side to be so dominant for the last 102 days, and the Italian smiled when giving his answer.

“Every day we work on this system and try to give different solutions with or without the ball and we have found good balance,” he said.

Conte said the next step is to now build on the work in the first half of the season that has Chelsea, who finished 10th last season, sitting five points clear at the summit of the Premier League.

He added: “My priority is to come back to winning.

“We are working together only for five months and to see we are on top of the table with the same players as last season, we must be pleased with this.”

 

He also stated his disappointment with the result while adding that it came against a good team that could have won the league last season.
