The signing of Antonio Conte has not been revolutionary for Tottenham Hotspurs so far. Since taking charge of the North London club two weeks ago, the Italian has had some easy games, like the one against Mura in the UEFA Conference that cost Spurs a lot of points. However, Spurs remained unbeaten in the Premier League under their new manager and comfortably won 2-0 over Brentford on day 14 of the ongoing season.
The line-up Antonio Conte used in this game is quite similar to the one he used against Leeds United in last week’s game, the two changes being Oliver Skipp and Davinson Sanchez who replaced Harry Winks and Japhet Tanganga respectively.
Unexpectedly, when Tottenham Hotspur struggled to keep the ball to themselves after ninety minutes, Brentford held the ball more than Spurs. However, in terms of the number of chances created, Antonio Conte and Co dominated the whole. They had 11 shots, including 6 hits. Under constant pressure from Spurs, Brentford full-back Sergi Canos fumbled and headed the ball into his net in an assist in the 12th minute.

Son Heung-min then doubled the lead in the second half by tapping an interesting Serge Reguilon assist. It was a perfect goal for the team and its fluidity is a clear sign that Spurs will get better and better over time under Antonio Conte. Now they will have to ‘Trust the Process’.
With this victory, Tottenham Hotspur is ranked 6th in the table with 22 points after 13 matches. They just need a big win to be able to enter the top 4 and so their hope of winning a place in the UEFA Champions League is huge.
