Tottenham and Antonio Conte were jeered off the field at halftime against Liverpool after falling down 2-0.
Tottenham Hotspur head coach Antonio Conte has responded to home fans jeering the squad off during the team’s 2-1 loss to Liverpool on Sunday. At the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Mohamed Salah’s brilliance punished Conte’s team for starting badly once more.
Tottenham paid the ultimate price for another sluggish game-start, failing to come back after falling behind this time. Following a commanding opening, Mohamed Salah gave Liverpool the lead with a goal in the 11th minute. Five minutes before halftime, he doubled Liverpool’s advantage by dinking over Hugo Lloris after latching onto Eric Dier’s ineffective back-header.

Spurs looked different after the break, as they have frequently in recent weeks following a reprimand from Conte. The moment he came off the bench, Dejan Kulusevski made a difference by setting up Harry Kane’s tense finish in the 70th minute.
Despite playing an additional game, Tottenham is still only three points clear of Manchester United in fourth place, while Liverpool managed to hold on for their first away Premier League victory of the year. In the next two games before the World Cup break, Conte will be anxious for his team to find their spark.
