Burnley v Tottenham: what was said?

Conte was quizzed on whether Harry Kane was the best striker he had worked with following his two-goal heroics against Man City.

The Italian said: “Harry is sure we are talking about a world-class striker. He works, he works very well.

“I think he’s also improving physically and I’m working with him too to become a benchmark for us.

“Becoming more attacking because sometimes in the past he liked to go off the beaten track to play. He is also very good at doing that.

“Also with Harry, we are working a lot on many aspects. I think my aspiration, I repeat, is to get to the end of the season and see every player improve after the work we do.

“It means our team is going in the right direction and going to be more competitive to try and fight for something important.”
