Antonio Conte urges Tottenham to sober up after Frankfurt stalemate

Antonio Conte urged Tottenham to sober up after they suffered a frustrating Champions League draw in Frankfurt in a bid to continue their poor form away in Europe.

Spurs created many opportunities in Germany, with Harry Kane and Son Heung-min guilty of not making the most of several openings in Group D.

While the Premier League club bounced back with a potentially crucial point after last weekend’s humiliating defeat by rivals Arsenal, they are now seven games without an away win in European competition.

“The match was a good match,” Conte told BT Sport.

“I think we played a game with great intensity. We didn’t allow them to play their football and we put a lot of pressure on all areas of the pitch.

“At the same time, we need to be more clinical. We have to be more sober because we created many, many chances to score and in the end we are talking about a draw.

“A good draw because it’s not easy to play away this atmosphere, a lot of noise around us and I think my players are dealing with the situation very well. We played a good game but we know very well that you don’t win if you don’t score but at least draw and we got a point today.”

Kane and Son came together on a few occasions but both were far from their best, with the latter taking his cross too far to deny the England captain what looked like a safe opener in the 25th minute.

Spurs striker Kane went wide soon after from a Son pass before the South Korea international went wide from a promising position late in the first half.

Son made another attempt early in the second period and – while Kane finally tested Kevin Trapp with nine minutes remaining – there would be no late goal at Deutsche Bank Park to seal Group D, with Sporting Lisbon, Tottenham and Frankfurt, on six points at the top with four points in second place and Marseille with three points in last place.

The game was good for us and we played with a great personality here

Conte added: “For me, the most important thing is to create chances.

“Then there are moments where you are more sober with every scoring chance, then there are moments like the Arsenal game and today where you create chances but sometimes you make a mistake on the last pass so you get there a second late to the ball or you go wide, but it’s important to create chances.

“The game was good for us and we played with a great personality here. Then we’ll see (what happens) in a week’s time when we have another game against them. Antonio Conte urges Tottenham to sober up after Frankfurt stalemate
