Tottenham transformed under Antonio Conte as optimism grows for Champions League push

The result mirrored Palace’s home win over Nuno Espirito Santo’s 10-away Spurs in September, which further underscored the extent of Conte’s work since taking over from the Portuguese last month.

Wilfried Zaha’s red card moments after Spurs overturned the game with two goals in as many minutes effectively ended the game as a game and gave Conte’s side a comfortable afternoon. .

Zaha’s influx of blood was kind of a turning point, but most of the damage had already been done by quick goals from Harry Kane and Lucas Moura, who was Spurs’ outstanding player.

The Brazilian prepared Kane to open the scoring and also scored Spurs’ third goal for Heung-min Son in the second half.

Spurs had looked a little turgid in the first half hour, but they came to life with two quick goals on the counterattack, both straight out of Conte’s playbook.

The Italian was only taking charge of his sixth league game but transformed Spurs beyond recognition and, having collapsed at Selhurst Park, they never seemed to concede here. Hugo Lloris was untested on his 35th birthday, while Japhet Tanganga, expelled in September, has asserted himself well in the last three.

Considering the busy schedule, it was a dream afternoon for Spurs, with Conte’s side actually seeing the game in second gear.

The head coach used the second half to manage his squad ahead of the visit to Southampton in 48 hours and Kane was put on rest for the final 30 minutes, while Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Son were also substituted.
