Antonio Conte reveals Spurs ‘felt blood’ of top-four rivals during Aston Villa win


Antonio Conte has revealed that Tottenham ‘felt the blood’ of their top-four rivals during their 4-0 victory over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Son Heung-min got Spurs off to the perfect start, making it 1-0 inside three minutes. Villa responded well after this but the hosts were eventually undone by three second-half goals – two from hat-trick hero Son and one from Dejan Kulusevski.

Spurs’ game kicked off at 5:30 and beforehand Wolves, Man Utd and Arsenal – who are challenging the Lilywhites for Champions League qualification this season – all lost their respective fixtures.

According to Conte, this made the victory all the sweeter.

“It was a great win for us, it wasn’t easy. But a great win, especially when you play a game after the games of your rivals in the race for the Champions League and they lost,” he said.
