ANTONIO Conte insists Tottenham Hotspur will turn their remaining nine Premier League games into a final in order to finish in the top four this season. Tottenham just won an important 3-1 victory over West Ham, Monday (21/3) early morning WIB.
Conte insists, his team will struggle to overcome Arsenal in the hunt for the Champions League zone this season. The Lilywhites–Tottenham’s nickname– is currently in fifth place with 51 points, 3 points difference from Arsenal in fourth position.
“The only way to put pressure on Arsenal is to get the three points, there are still nine games to play and for us every game has to be like a final,” Conte said.
“I like to fight to be competitive, have opportunities to fight and then you know very well only one team can win but I think the past has given me an opportunity.”
