Antonio Conte insists Tottenham have ‘best group of players’ he’s ever worked with

Harry Kane 95th-minute winner gave Spurs a dramatic win at the Etihad, as their hopes of a top-four spot is kept alive.

Antonio Conte who had bitter-sweet relationship with press earlier this week for misquoting his words was full of praise for his sides sensational display as they stunned League leaders Manchester City 3-2 in a mammoth mouth-watering match at Etihad on Saturday but urged fans not to get carried away.

“One win is not enough, don’t forget we’re coming after three losses,” Conte said.

“But for sure the win against Man City can give you confidence and trust in what you’re doing. We can improve a lot.

“Also in this game against Man City, we had a lot of work today but we’re not scared to work.”

Tottenham’s win brought an end to a run of three straight defeats in the Premier League, which had derailed their Champions League ambitions and raised plenty of questions.

Conte was asked if that had brought the players closer together and was in no rush to put a positive spin on a losing run, but he did praise his team’s work-rate.

“If I have to tell you it was good to have three losses, no!” Conte said.

“Because I hate to lose. But at the same time it was important to have this reaction because maybe the last two games, not against Chelsea, maybe we deserved more than to lose.

“But the Premier League is very difficult, we have to fight a lot, to try to give everything to improve your level.

We’re working very hard and I’m enjoying working with this group of players.”

“This group of players is fantastic. Honestly this is one of the best group of players I’ve worked with in my career.

We have a lot of space for improvement. We have mainly young players to improve and make experience.”
