Tottenham Hotspur, under the care of their new head coach Antonio Conte, took on Brentford at home on Thursday night. And they won, at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, by a confident 2-0 tally. So, after we covered their 2-0 home triumph in Premier League football today, Conte believes Spurs performed well, too.
Son Heung-min played a part in both goals in the match, the first of which was an unfortunate own goal.
Just past the 10-minute mark, Son struck a dangerous cross that deflected off Bretford’s Sergi Canos into the net.
After this own goal, in the 65th minute, on a quick counter-attack, Sergio Reguilon passed to Son who scored easily. He slotted a shot in at the back post, into an open net.
Premier League Football Today – Conte Believes Spurs Performed Well
And Tottenham Hotspur head coach Antonio Conte is pleased with his team.
Conte got what he must’ve have demanded with harsh words following the last-gasp loss in Slovenia (here’s the football news).
Head Coach Antonio told Spurs TV: “It was a good win, a good win against a very dangerous team, well organised, very strong on set pieces and the throw-ins always dangerous. We performed well, with great attention, great desire to get three points, to finish with a clean sheet, always important.
“We missed chances to improve the final result, but it’s important to create chances and I think we’re going to improve in our performance and the danger (we create) in the opponents’ box.”
“It was a good performance against a dangerous team,” Conte said. “I’m happy because I have seen a great commitment and a good passion about the players.
“It’s a good reaction [after last week]. In a loss you learn a lot but now we have to think about another Premier League game on Sunday [against Norwich City].
