Tottenham has re-entered the Premier League’s top four and is buzzing after six victories in their previous eight games, setting them on track to qualify for the Champions League next season.
Spurs have developed into a formidable force, with Antonio Conte’s strategies and approach to the game that seemed to mesh with his players, as they have effortlessly demolished a number of clubs in recent weeks.
Following Tottenham’s turnaround, the Italian has indicated that he is “more confident” in his team’s ability to overcome their opponents than he was when he took over in November.
Tottenham have won three games in a row, hitting 10 goals in the process, and will be hopeful that their recent performance can help them secure another three points against Aston Villa on Saturday. Conte understands his players have the strength to do so.
In Thursday’s pre-match press conference, he said: “We have to continue in this way, to play in the way we’re playing in this period. After hard work, we improved a lot from the past.
He further imparted by saying “Also in the past, we won games, but I think that now I’m starting to see the right maturity and solidity of my team. Also, the right confidence of my players to try to play the game and get three points. This league is very difficult but if you compare it to the past my team has improved a lot. I feel now more comfortable to face the opponent.”
Spurs confirmed that they would complete another season without a title after losing all three cup competitions prior to March 1, but this has served in their favor in their pursuit of a top-four finish by affording them more than enough time to relax and recover between weekend matches.
Tottenham played five Premier League games in March, with just one of them being a midweek match, and the north London club ended up winning four times throughout the month to re-establish their place in the top four.
