Antonio Conte has urged the Tottenham board to not let him make any “dangerous” demands of the club, following yet another dismal performance in their 4-2 loss against Manchester City.

Despite being two goals up at halftime, Spurs were unable to maintain their lead and allowed City to level it out within eight minutes before running away with the game in the second half.

It was a result that many may have found difficult to predict would happen at the interval, and some may have been hoping that Tottenham would have been able to hold on. Indeed, despite the fact the game was a huge Premier League fixture, there is no doubt that it was also a top betting opportunity for those using the listed sportsbooks available on the platform where a safe experience is always possible to enjoy.

This unfortunate result closed off a five-point difference between them and Arsenal — leaving everyone with much room for improvement!

Tottenham, on the other hand, have only achieved a single victory in the Premier League since the World Cup and are now five points behind Newcastle with an additional game played.

The status of Conte’s tenure at Tottenham is uncertain as his contract will expire by the end of this season but they do own an option to extend it for another year.

Following his team’s loss to City, Conte was adamant that the requests he has made of the club in his tenure are far more modest than when managing other clubs.

“If I demanded the same level as at Juventus and Inter it could be dangerous, as my frustration could be very big,” Conte told reporters, as per The Evening Standard.

“Instead I know what is my task in this situation and then I’m working very hard because I want to improve. I want to improve the team and the club with my vision, with my idea, with my suggestions. Then for sure we see.”

When asked what needed to happen at Tottenham in order to close the gap and compete with others above them, he stated: “This is not a question for me. This is a question for the club.”

Dejan Kulusevski and Emerson Royal’s goals gave Tottenham a commanding lead at the half, but what seemed to be a done deal soon evaporated. Goals from Julian Alvarez, Erling Haaland, and a double from Riyad Mahrez destroyed the north London outfit’s hopes of traveling back to the capital with any points, let alone all three they held at halftime.

For nine consecutive Premier League matches now, Spurs have conceded two or more goals; their defensive record this season is the worst since 2007/08; a troubling statistic for Conte & Co.

It is something that the Italian has become frustrated by and it is rather evident with the words that he has been saying when speaking to the media. He has continued to highlight that it is a work-in-progress situation, that there is a lot of differences between his team and those at the top, but admitted his side would do everything they can to fight and push on in their quest to climb the table.
