It has been a week since Spurs last played, which, against the backdrop of the hectic festive schedule, could be a blessing in disguise.
Considering that Conte had little time to work on the training ground with a full squad available, perhaps the fact that their match at Burnley on Sunday was called off may work in their favor.
Still, Spurs haven’t really been excited about the Italian so far and, although it’s still only the early days, they need some sort of performance.
After all, their loss to NS Mura in the Europa Conference League last week was a huge embarrassment and a reaction is needed.
