Jamie Carragher thinks Arsenal ‘improvement’ has ruined Antonio Conte’s Tottenham rant

Jamie Carragher has highlighted Arsenal’s success this season as the reason why Antonio Conte’s argument at Tottenham was wrong.

It was just another weekend in the life of a Tottenham Hotspur fan.

Spurs looked to be on their way to victory with a 3-1 lead at Southampton on Saturday afternoon, but they managed to throw it all away.

James Ward-Prowse’s last-minute penalty saved a point for the struggling Saints, leaving Conte furious.

The Tottenham boss has questioned the desire, commitment and fight of his Tottenham players while labeling them “selfish”.

Conte stressed the club hadn’t won anything in years and seemed to place the blame on the players.

That doesn’t put an end to the theory that Conte will leave Tottenham this summer, and his rants have also been called into question.

Jamie Carragher questions Antonio Conte’s Tottenham tirade

Expert Jamie Carragher highlighted on Twitter Conte shouldn’t be talking about Tottenham in such a derogatory way – especially when they’ve offered him a really good contract.

Carragher also believes Arsenal’s progress this season has taken away a lot of Conte’s arguments.

Tottenham Hotspur overtook Arsenal at the end of last season, clinching a Champions League place in the process.

Yet Tottenham now see Arsenal five points clear at the top of the Premier League table, 17 ahead of Spurs.

Carragher clearly thinks Arsenal are changing their narrative in recent years and thinks Conte should be able to do something similar at Tottenham.

Conte lashed out at his Tottenham players, but many of them are the same men who led Spurs to a win over Arsenal less than a year ago.

Conte hasn’t progressed at Tottenham the way Mikel Arteta has at Arsenal, and the Italian’s season hasn’t been good enough.

Yes, Spurs are fourth, but football has been terrible and cup losses to Nottingham Forest, Sheffield United and AC Milan have not reassured fans.

Arteta improved his players and brought a great style of play, while Conte seemed to keep hinting at wanting to leave Tottenham, then sounded surprised when his players didn’t appear to be 100 per cent bought.

Conte has had a very difficult season away from football and maybe it’s best for everyone to go their separate ways this summer.
