Spurs were booed after losing to Wolves last time out, and Antonio Conte has been incensed by the coverage and reaction to his interview with the Italian media, in which he bemoaned the transfer situation after January, despite spending a lot of money to sign Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski from Juventus.
Spurs will face a City side in excellent form after their thrashing of Sporting in the Champions League this week, which saw them all but seal their spot in the quarter-finals after a lopsided first leg. Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden, and Raheem Sterling are all in good form and offer a serious threat to Spurs’ chances of finishing in the top four.
The task at hand has been made easier by City’s possession dominance, which may aid Conte’s ability to drill his side this week on the training ground in the hopes of at least a performance to boost confidence down the stretch as Harry Kane considers his future this summer with only two years left on his contract.
Antonio Conte (Chelsea, Spurs) is the fifth manager to win a Premier League away match at Etihad Stadium in charge of multiple clubs, after Claudio Ranieri (Chelsea, Leicester), Mark Hughes (Blackburn Rovers, Stoke City), Jose Mourinho (Chelsea, Man Utd) and Roy Hodgson (Fulham, Crystal Palace).
