Former Arsenal striker, Ian Wright, has offered his thoughts on Tottenham Hotspur under Antonio Conte this week as pressure already starts to mount on the Italian.
A run of poor form and another outspoken interview this week have left some wondering whether the relationship between Conte and the club will ever work. Of course, many have said right from the start that Conte wouldn’t be afraid of letting his feelings known if things weren’t to his liking.
And according to Ian Wright, Conte should be picking three Spurs players every week and putting the onus on that trio getting involved in the game.
“Harry Kane has to start, Son has to start and I would definitely have Moura starting. So 3-4-3 with the wing-backs which he wants pushed on is probably the best way for them to do it. But are they good enough?,” Wright said on The Kelly and Wright Show.
“I watched them against Wolves and Wolves put them under pressure and there was mistakes. They made mistakes in terms of the pressure they were put under. But whatever they are doing has to lead to them getting the ball in and around Kane, Son and Moura.”
Tottenham face the most difficult of tests this weekend away at Manchester City.
The league leaders are flying, and smashed five past Sporting Lisbon in Europe in midweek.
Conte will be hoping this weekend can be a turning point in their Champions League top four after their three consecutive defeats.
