Jamie Carragher believes that Antonio Conte has completely transformed the club with the limited resources at his disposal. They are currently unbeaten and favorites to land a spot in the top four of the Premier League. Spurs have picked up 14 points from the six games under Conte and are only one of the two unbeaten teams during that spell. They are averaging 114 kilometers per game under Conte as compared to 100 kilometers per game under Nuno.
“That is the impact that he has had. We should also say that it has been a favourable start for Antonio Conte with five home games and one away and the average positions of the opposition. It was a tougher start for Nuno but there is no doubt they have another level of manager now.” Jamie Carragher said about the impact of Antonio Conte. “Watching them at the weekend, it took me back to Chelsea under Conte or even under Thomas Tuchel now with that 3-4-3. Lucas Moura with Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane, that is a formidable front three, with these wing-backs that play high and wide.”
“Just the role that the two No 10s have, it makes it really difficult for those who pick them up. This is the problem that you have as the full-back, do you go with the wing-back or the No 10? The space is outside for the wing-back. We see that a lot with Tuchel’s team.” he added. “Against Conte, against Chelsea now, you see it so often where the space is there for the wing-back, whether it is Marcos Alonso, Reece James, or, for Tottenham, Sergio Reguilon. I always feel that if you go with a back four against these top teams it is really difficult because this seems to happen a lot.”
