Antonio Conte has hit back at Jurgen Klopp’s criticism following thier 1-1 draw at Anfield in the Premier League.

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte hit back at Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s criticism over his tactics.

Klopp stated that he would never coach that kind of defensive tactics in Anfield following their 1-1 draw in the Premier League against the London club.

But Conte hit back on Tuesday, saying: “Jurgen is an intelligent person, very clever.

“For the coach, it is not simple after the game, you have to try to keep your head cool. Sometimes it is not easy and many times if you remember this season I was disappointed with the result and myself and my players.

“I have respect for Jurgen and I know he respects me a lot and this is a good chance for him and me to learn that during the game you never have to speak about your opponent. It is important to be focused on your team.

“He was a bit frustrated after the game but at the same time for every coach it is important to learn to be focused on your team, not the opponent. It means you want to find an excuse or an alibi because your job was wrong.”

Meanwhile, Arsenal will visit the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Thursday night in the North London derby.

“First we are playing this game for an important target. For a place in the Champions League. This is first, to try to win this game. I also know the importance for our fans of this derby, the north London derby. This is the first time they’re playing this derby in their stadium with all the fans.

“We have to try to get three points against Arsenal. We are talking about a good team, a really well-organised team. Arteta is doing a really good job. He’s had the possibility to work and improve his team. In this moment of the season it has to give us a big push.”
