From Premier League’s worst to best: Remarkable stat highlights key difference between Tottenham under Conte & Nuno

 

A head-turning statistic comparing the off-ball efforts of Tottenham Hotspur under Antonio Conte to those seen across the reign of Nuno Espirito Santo has come to the fore on Friday.

The Conte effect

Italian headmaster Conte has of course been overseeing developments on the Lilywhite half of north London for the best part of two months now.

On the back of a dismal opening to the campaign under the aforementioned Nuno, the board at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium came to the eventual decision that change was needed early in November.

And to say that Conte has since brought about exactly that would be something of an understatement.

For the first time in some time, those of a Spurs persuasion have been provided with legitimate hope of a successful long-term project at the club, spearheaded by the near-unmatched brilliance of their new boss.

The performances put forth by Conte’s men, over recent weeks in particular, have painted the picture of a side with a plan of action each and every time they step foot on the pitch.

And such efforts have begun to translate to results, too, with successive Premier League downings of Brentford and Norwich having been followed by an impressive 2-2 draw with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool and, most recently, a Carabao Cup quarter-final triumph over West Ham United.

Nuno vs Conte

And now, as alluded to above, on Friday, a statistic to have surfaced online has summed up perfectly exactly where Conte’s influence has been most heavily felt.

As per a number of reliable sources, under Nuno, Tottenham’s stars, combined, averaged a distance of 100km covered-per-game over the early months of the Premier League campaign. This ranked as the lowest per-game average in the division.

Remarkably, though, since the arrival of Conte, the Lilywhites’ squad has flipped the ‘lazy’ narrative on its head, by means of the best distance covered average in the Premier League:
