Conte suspicious of ‘really good’ Southampton – SABC Sport

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte is concerned about the Southampton threat following the result of their last meeting but is looking forward to getting things underway in the 2022/23 Premier League season.

Spurs welcome Saints to Tottenham Stadium for the start of their new season on Saturday afternoon, with the game being broadcast LIVE SABC sport.

After last season’s results between the two teams, in which Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side moved four points away from the London team with a 1-1 draw and a dramatic 3-2 win, this promises to be another exciting duel.

Conte, who enjoyed his first pre-season with the club since joining mid-2021/22, says his first priority is to ensure they don’t suffer the same fate this time.

“My expectation is a different result than last season [laughs] – that is my first expectation. I hope so because we beat Southampton last season, we retired and lost at home,” Conte told the media in his MD-1 press conference.

“This season we’re talking about a really good team with a good manager and we have to be very careful. But at the same time we want to try to start as well as possible to get three points.

“We’re playing in our stadium, it’s the first game [of the new season] and we will see our fans again, so it will be exciting for the players and I to play again and go into the new season.”

Set-up for the match is scheduled for 3pm on SABC 3, with kick-off scheduled for 4pm (SA time).
