‘The irony’ – Tottenham are set to have Manchester United fans speak to Antonio Conte

Following Spurs’ 3-0 defeat to Manchester United, the pressure on Nuno Espirito Santo increased with emergency meetings allegedly held in north London and Antonio Conte is said to be ousted, a few days after he expressed his availability to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

The former Wolves manager was hailed on two occasions during the clash with United, and home fans were up in arms after replacing Lucas Moura with Steven Bergwijn. Tottenham were mocked as the traveling reds were excited about the show.

Despite winning manager of the month in his first month as manager at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Spurs’ form has dropped dramatically.

In the wake of a 5-0 defeat against the hands of Liverpool, Solskjær faced intense scrutiny around his managerial position.

Some fans enjoyed the reports that Conte was linked to the possible vacancy at Spurs, while others took the opportunity to target the struggling Londoners.

The former Inter Milan head coach declared that he was open to taking responsibility for the Theater of Dreams, but the Norwegian maintained his place in power and baked the victory of the Reds on Saturday night.

It provided a temporary respite for Solskjær, and he will take responsibility for the showdown against Atalanta in the middle of the week, as United seem to be expanding their lead at the top of Group F in the Champions League.

Although Conte was open to the move to the North West, he received no formal contact from the club’s representatives with Manchester United, who were unsure of the former Chelsea boss.

Graeme Souness was critical of Nuno’s side as they barely fought as Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford inflicted more misery on Harry Kane and co.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s Manchester United came back from a week of intense pressure by beating Spurs 3-0 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

“They’ve had a terrible week. I mean you take a win no matter how it comes – this was a perfect match for Man U. Come here, Spurs are toothless, that statistic tells you so,” Souness told Sky Sports.

“Not a shot at goal. They’re addicted to people with a spark – Harry Kane, Son, Moura – none of them did it today. They all look like a shadow of what they’re been up to lately. .

“They’re toothless, they’re toothless. It can be tough, but the statistics tell you so. Yes, they’ve had 58 percent of the ball today, done nothing about it. They were very, very average today Spurs.”
