Tottenham boss Conte demands better from wing-backs

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte wants better from his wing-backs after their win against Watford.

 

Emerson Royal put in 13 crosses and Sergio Reguilon five, but few came to more than half-chances as Watford repelled wave after wave of a blunt Spurs attack.

 

The match followed a similar pattern to the second half of Spurs’ frustrating 1-1 draw with ten-man Southampton in their last game, leaving Conte calling for improvement.

 

“With these kind of games, if you can score early then the plan of your opponent has to change,” Conte said.

 

“We controlled the game and we had a lot of possession and in the first half I have seen the stats – and we made 29 crosses.

“We have to improve in the last pass, to have more quality because the last pass means whether you score or not.

 

“During the game, when you create chances to score, you have to try to exploit these chances, especially in this type of game where your opponent is well organised defensively, with nine or ten players behind the ball. It is not easy.

 

“I think we have a team that is very good when we find space to attack. When we find a team that is very narrow, and they defend very well with all the team behind the ball, we need to improve. I know we have space to improve. And also to improve the quality in the final pass.”
