At the beginning of November, Tottenham Hotspur sacked Nuno Espirito Santo as the club manager after 17 matches. Spurs only won eight games out of these 17 matches.

But after that, the game disintegrated, and in the match against Manchester United at the end of October, they lost it by three goals. Under Nuno, Spurs scored only nine goals in 10 league games, and the club had the worst goal difference. Click on wrestling betting for more details on wrestling.
Tottenham was able to get the services of Antonio Conte quickly, and his first match was against the Eredivise side Vitesse in the UEFA Europa Conference League. He won the thrilling game for three goals to two and started his Tottenham journey with a win. But still, the team lacked what Conte was asking for, and he knew that it would take time to prepare the team as he needed it.
His first league game ended in a draw against Everton, and he was very disappointed with this result. As the team’s manager, he had the first win when the team won against Leeds United. Spurs’ performance was solid, but he asked for more intensity from the players.
After the first two matches, the team was seventh in the point table. In the league, the team is consistently performing under the Italian manager. After the game against Leeds United, Spurs’ had seven matches in Premier League. In that, they won five games and drew two. Two games were postponed due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
In the latest match against Watford in the weekend, Davinson Sanchez snatched a last-gasp winner as they beat struggling Watford 1-0 to extend Antonio Conte’s unbeaten start on Saturday. Sanchez broke Watford’s stubborn resistance deep into stoppage-time at Vicarage Road. The Colombia defender’s header gave Tottenham a fifth win in their last seven Premier League matches. Conte remains unbeaten after eight league games.
Tottenham moves up to fifth place, just two points behind fourth-placed north London rivals Arsenal with two games in hand.
After the match, Antonio Conte admitted that his Tottenham side had to suffer for a hard-fought three points against Watford. He said: “We scored at the end, but I think we tried and tried for the whole game. In this type of game, you have to be intelligent to attack. They are very dangerous on the counter-attack and are strong physically, as well as fast.”
“I think we played a good game and controlled it for sure. When we arrive at the last pass sometimes, we have to improve to score. It was difficult because we didn’t score but created chances, and when you find an opponent who is well organised it is not simple.”
