Glenn Murray backed Tottenham Hotspur to finish another top-four finish in the Premier League in the 2022/23 season, as Antonio Conte’s attacking power is “almost unparalleled”.
Tottenham’s attack ‘almost like no other’ to finish fourth in pole position
Glenn Murray told BBC Sport that Antonio Conte will lead Tottenham Hotspur to third place in the new Premier League season. The former Brighton & Hove Albion striker feels the Italian can now build on last season’s fourth place with the depth he gained.
Conte Nuno replaced Espirito Santo at the helm of the north London side in November with Tottenham ninth in the standings. The club won only five of its first 10 matches under the Portuguese to five defeats, and the goal difference was -7 with nine goals.
However, Spurs finished the season two points behind Arsenal in fourth place. Conte oversaw 17 wins and five draws in 28 matches he played, while he saw his stars score 60 goals against 24 goals conceded. Only Manchester City (73) and Liverpool (70) got more points (56).
Tottenham support Antonio Conte in the summer transfer market
Tottenham have backed Conte in the transfer market this summer so far to assemble a squad to push him through. Ivan Perisic joined in the Bosman transfer deal after his contract with Inter Milan expired in June. Fraser-Forster also arrived after his contract with Southampton expired.
Spurs also paid Brighton & Hove Albion £25m, up to £35m, to Yves Bisuma, and paid Everton £50m, rising to £60m for Richarlison. Spence’s grandfather arrived in the capital from Middlesbrough for 12.5 million pounds, rose to 20 million pounds, and Clement Lenglet is on loan from Barcelona.
Richarlison joined an attacking unit that already boasted Harry Kane, Dejan Kulusevsky and the Golden Boot last season, Son Heung-min. Murray feels the quartet is difficult for any side to rival now, and advises Conte to finish fourth at Spurs.
“We’ve already seen Tottenham’s progress since Antonio Conte took charge in November, and you know he’ll make them work hard again,” Murray predicted. “Their firepower is almost incomparable and his style of play is very structured – they won’t let too many goals in.”
