“We analysed the game the day after, and for sure if there was a team that deserved to win and created the chances to win, it was Tottenham not Liverpool,” Conte said. “In this game, I think Klopp understood he gained one point, not lost two points.

“Jurgen is an intelligent person, he’s very clever. He was a bit frustrated after the game.

“At the same time, for us, for a top coach or for every coach, it’s important to learn that after the game it’s important be focused on your team, not your opponent. To be focused on your opponent, it means you want to find an excuse or alibi because your job didn’t work or something was wrong.”
