The signing of Antonio Conte has not turned out to be revolutionary for Tottenham Hotspurs so far. Since taking charge of the North London club two weeks ago, the Italian gaffer has already bottled a number of easy matches, like the one against Mura in the UEFA Conference league and has already cost Spurs an ample amount of points. However, Spurs are still undefeated in the Premier League under their new coach and their comfortable 2-0 victory over Brentford on Match-day 14 of the ongoing season.

The playing XI that Antonio Conte went for in this match was pretty much the same as the one he used against Leeds United in the previous game-week, the two changes being Oliver Skipp and Davinson Sanchez who replaced Harry Winks and Japhet Tanganga respectively.

Quite unexpectedly, Tottenham Hotspur were struggling to keep the ball to themselves at ninety minutes, Brentford ended up with more possession than Spurs. However, in terms of chances created, Antonio Conte and Co. dominated all throughout. They had 11 attempted shots out of which 6 were on target. Due to this continued pressure from the Spurs, Brentford Full-back Sergi Canos fumbled and headed the ball into his own net during a build up at the 12th minute mark.

Son Heung-min then doubled their lead in the second half by tapping in a delightful assist by Serge Reguilon. It was a perfect team goal and it’s fluidity is a clear indication that Spurs will only get better and better with time under Antonio Conte. They will now have to ‘Trust the process’.

With this win, Tottenham Hotspur are currently seated on the 6th position of the league table with 22 points in 13 matches. They need just one big victory to enter the top 4 spots and thus their hope for a UEFA Champions League qualification is very much alive.
