Several Tottenham fans have been unhappy with Antonio Conte’s team selection for his first Premier League outing at the north London club.

Conte, who replaced Nuno Espirito Santo as coach earlier in the week, brings his new team to Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon for a tough game against an Everton team in need of a positive result.

The Italian named an unchanged starting eleven for the team that narrowly edged Vitesse in the Europa Conference League on Thursday, with the north London club fighting for a 3-2 win.

Despite Conte’s immediate switch to his usual three defenders, and despite going 3-0 up from the start after a frenzied start, Tottenham’s defense typically looked leaky as the visitors pressed.

New signing Christian Romero, who has generally adapted well to English football so far, was sent off for two yellow cards, while Eric Dier was hit on the header from a corner and Jacob Rasmussen threw one back.

Ben Davies, who was a surprise inclusion in Conte’s team, though not a total surprise given his experience playing in the Wales defense, also received criticism from fans.

Tottenham are hoping for a quick start under the guidance of their prolific new coach, and while Conte is insisted by many who are confident, their first Premier League pick has had some fans scratching their heads.

Reacting to the news of Conte’s first pick in the Premier League, one fan wrote: “Didn’t (Conte) see what we saw on Thursday night … Dier and Davies?”

Another wrote: ‘(Japhet) Tanganga and Davinson (Sánchez) on the bench too, but we started with Dier and Benjamin Davies.’

Another puzzled fan wrote: “Same terrible lineup (as) against Vitesse.”

Another frequent concern for Tottenham fans throughout the campaign, particularly with Nuno, is a lack of creativity in midfield, a problem Conte certainly did not experience during his first game in charge.

However, an issue noted by several fans throughout the contest was the combination of Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, with many suggesting that it is simply too limited a pair on the ball, while both players are similar in style and stature. .

Tanguy Ndombele made his way to Nuno’s side after being initially overlooked and impressed after coming in as a substitute on Thursday.

However, the French enigma has returned to stay on the bench, along with Dele Alli and Giovani Lo Celso, with the Tottenham fans once again worried.

One fan wrote: ‘Not the team I expected or expected. You don’t need to play five in the rear, and Davies has no place in the center of the back. In fact, we have three better centrals in the bank. Tanganga, Sánchez and (Joe) Rodon. Also, Skipp and Hojbjerg too defensive. This will again be a difficult match. “

Another wrote: “Conte doesn’t like Ndombele.”

Several Spurs fans are also concerned about the association of Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in midfield.
