Conte Concerned Tottenham Can't 'Compete' In Big EPL Games

Conte Concerned Tottenham Can't 'Compete' In Big EPL Games

Antonio Conte

Tottenham Hotspur coach Antonio Conte said his side struggles to compete in games against top Premier League clubs after they were well beaten by Manchester United on Wednesday.

Spurs slipped to a 2-0 defeat at Old Trafford, but the scoreline did not reflect the fact that they were comfortably second-best in Manchester, facing 28 shots in the match.

For all their progress this season – Spurs are third in the standings despite the loss – Conte feels his team still let themselves down against tougher opponents.

"We have to be honest, United deserved to win," Conte said. "They started the game very well. On our side, we did not start the game. It was really difficult because we made a lot of simple mistakes.

"The table is good, but every time we play a high-level game, we struggle. I want to be honest – against Chelsea we struggle, we lost against Arsenal and Manchester United.

"In this type of game, I think that you need to arrive and not make big mistakes, with great concentration, and great focus. You need to be ready to fight a war, or you die against your opponent. The level is very high, we are struggling."

Conte, however, is not too worried and feels his team need time to continue their improvement.

"In only 10 months we cannot pass from the ninth place (when he took over) to become title contenders the year after," he added.

"We do not forget last season. We need to be disappointed. We need to show much more. I think that we can do much better than this today."
