Tottenham started the new season brilliantly. They achieved another victory, against Wolverhampton with a score of 1:0. The scorer for Antonio Conte's team was Harry Kane. Antonio Conte was happy after his team's victory. The Italian believes that Wolves have one of the strongest midfields, and that new reinforcements are important for the team from Molineux.
“The performance at the end was good after considering everything,” said Conte, as quoted by teamtalk. “First of all the [quality] of the opponent, because Wolverhampton in the last week signed two important players (Matheus Nunes and Goncalo Guedes – who both started).
If you see their starting eleven today you have to be a bit scared because Wolves with [Ruben] Neves and Nunes have one of the best midfields in the Premier League. In the first half we struggled a bit, but in the second half we deserved to win.
We created many chances to score. Don’t forget last season against the three teams we’ve played (Southampton, Chelsea and Wolves), we lost. Now we’ve got seven points”.
Antonio Conte on Harry Kane: He’s working for this
Harry Kane broke an important record and is now the player with the most goals scored in the Premiership.
“I know very well that Harry would like to exchange this achievement for a trophy. He’s working for this, we’re working for this, to bring the team to another level and to not only have personal achievements.
We’re talking about a world class striker, but what makes me happy is his total involvement with his team-mates. He works a lot for the team and for this reason, I’m really pleased to be his coach”. Harry Kane had something to say after the match.
The Englishman praised Wolves who put up a good fight. “Credit to Wolves, they made it difficult. “In the second half we came out with intensity. We created chances and pressed better, we deserved the goal. We didn’t create too many chances after that but neither did they”.
Kane is happy about the new victory, but believes that the team must play even better. “It’s been a fantastic nine or 10 years in the Premier League. Hopefully many more years to go. I always love scoring. The most important thing is winning games.
Credit to the boys, they dug deep. We need to start games better. We need to improve. But the sign of a good team is winning when you don’t play at your best”.
