Spurs fans want ‘negative’ Conte ‘sacked on the spot’ after Arsenal humiliation

A large number of Tottenham supporters want Antonio Conte to be sacked from his position as manager after they were "humiliated" by rivals Arsenal.

Mikel Arteta's men are the runaway Premier League leaders with a 2-0 win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium sending them eight points clear at the top after 18 fixtures.

That, combined with the negative performance in Arsenal's 2-0 victory has led to fans calling for Daniel Levy to take action – with Mauricio Pochettino out of work.

One fuming fan said: "Sack Conte right now on the spot, it’s unacceptable to lose a NLD at home."

A second wrote: "Sack Conte. Get Poch back, sign some young talent and let’s start again."

A third agreed: "Sack Conte I never want to see us lineup with a 5 back ever again I can’t do this anymore."

As a fourth concluded: "Not even a dilemma for me. Sack Conte tonight."

Spurs fans, would you take Pochettino back in the dugout? Tell us in the comments section below.

Arsenal have done the league double over their local rivals for the first time since 2013/14 with the 2-0 victory that came from a Hugo Lloris own goal and a Martin Odegaard drive, in a game that was soured by fan trouble.

The result leaves Spurs 14 points behind Arsenal and five behind fourth-placed Manchester United with former Premier League and Serie A winner Conte knowing things have gone wrong.

He told Sky Sports: "It was difficult to come back after we conceded two goals. When we conceded the first, we had the possibility to level the game with Sonny (Son Heung-min) and the keeper made a fantastic save.

"Then they scored the second goal. It could have killed everybody, but not my players as in the second half we tried with a big effort to score and create problems for Arsenal.

"The keeper made fantastic saves today. Arsenal is a difficult opponent now, like Man City. Both teams are going to contend for the Premier League title.

"We played against a strong team but at the same time I’ve not got great disappointment for the commitment of my players. They showed great will and desire to try and come back. Sometimes in the past we did, but today their keeper was really good."
