Antonio Conte: This is a good start

Antonio Conte gave his thoughts on his start to life as Tottenham manager after his side picked up a win against Vitesse in midweek and a goalless draw at Everton at the weekend.

After Antonio Conte’s successful debut as Tottenham Hotspur manager in the Conference League, the Italian was looking to do the same in the Premier League.

In a hard fought match between both sides, Everton and Spurs divided points in a goalless draw at Goodison Park.

Conte opted to start the same line-up as he did in the middle of the week against Vitesse, which included a defense of three centre-backs along with Emerson Royal and Sergio Reguilon as wing-backs.

Although Spurs fought hard from beginning to end, they were not able to break into Everton’s box, resulting in them failing to attempt a single shot on target.

Late in the game, Giovani Lo Celso had the best chance for Tottenham, but his left-footed effort hit Jordan Pickford’s right post.

The Video Assistant Referee was used twice during the game – both in the second half – which included checking a nonexistent Richarlison penalty in the Spurs box as well as Mason Holgate’s red card for a foul on Pierre-Emile Hojberg.

It should be noted, Spurs defender Emerson had an outstanding performance from his wing-back role as he got forward, but still delivered in the back when he was called on.
