Ben Davies admits Tottenham players ‘desperate’ to ‘get started’ under Antonio Conte

Spurs failed a shot on target at Goodison Park despite working the ball in a number of good areas in what was a much more suspicious affair than Conte’s opener, a 3-2 home win against Vitesse Arnhem in the Europa Conference League on Thursday night.

While that was of course a disappointment, the Italian had been in his post for less than a week and, speaking to the club’s official website after the game, Davies insisted on the need for patience.

“We have a lot of work to do,” said the Welsh international.

“We have a lot to improve, but I think it’s a world-class manager who will contribute his ideas.

“He’s going to work us hard to make sure we do it right. As players, we are desperate to start with him now. “

With a number of fairly prominent Spurs players who have not been called up to international service after a difficult start to the campaign for the club, Conte has at least some time to work on his plans ahead of the Premier’s resumption. League later this month.

The next stop for Tottenham is a visit to Leeds United on Sunday 27 November at 4.30 p.m. GMT.
