Good afternoon and welcome to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for live coverage of Antonio Conte’s press conference following Tottenham’s 2-1 win vs Fulham. Coming into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw vs West Ham, the Spurs boss made five changes to his XI as the likes of Clement Lenglet, Cristian Romero, Rodrigo Bentancur, Ryan Sessegnon, and Richarlison came in. Tottenham started well and created several chances but unfortunately couldn’t find the breakthrough until Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg netted the opener five minutes before the break. Tottenham had more chances after the break and forced Bernd Leno into a few saves, with Hugo Lloris then needed to save from a deflected Alexsandar Mitrovic effort. Making it 2-0 through Harry Kane late on, Fulham gave the hosts a scare late, with Mitrovic netting a stunning goal.
Our Spurs reporter Rob Guest is among those putting the questions to Conte. Please scroll down for his latest updates from the press conference at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Fulham have completed the signings of Willian on a free transfer, Carlos Vinicius on a permanent deal, plus Dan James and Layvin Kurzawa on season-long loans. The arrivals take the number of acquisitions made by the Premier League club this summer to 11. Their final signing of the window was Wales international James from Leeds. The 24-year-old said: “I’ve spoken to the gaffer and it feels like a great fit, I can’t wait to get started.” James joined Leeds in a £25m transfer from Manchester United in the summer of 2021, but scored only four goals last season as the club struggled against relegation. Ex-Chelsea and Arsenal midfielder Willian, 34, had been playing with Corinthians.
However, he had his contract cancelled with the Brazilian club after claiming he received death threats. “Fulham is a special club, a club that wants to improve, that wants to fight for something bigger, so I’m here to help, and I can’t wait to get started.” Fulham have also signed striker Vinicius, formerly on loan at Tottenham, on a three-year deal from Benfica for an undisclosed fee. The 27-year-old said: “I’m really happy to be here. I think it’s a big club with good people, so I’m really, really happy. “I’m happy to be back in the Premier League again. I’m more experienced now and I think I can help the club.” Left-back Kurzawa, 29, has made 153 appearances for French champions Paris St-Germain since arriving from Monaco in 2015 but is yet to feature in Ligue 1 this term. “I feel very, very happy to be here. It’s a family here, everyone is very cool,” he told the club website. “I’ve watched every Fulham game this season, and I can’t wait to play with this team.”
Meanwhile, back-up goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga departed Fulham on deadline day, joining Spanish club Girona on a season-long loan. West Ham have made an enquiry for former Chelsea defender Ola Aina, but have yet to make a bid despite reports in Italy. Aina was born in Southwark, London, but chose to represent Nigeria on the international stage after appearances for England at the under-16 to under-20 levels. The wing-back came through the Chelsea youth system, and played six times for the Blues under Antonio Conte in 2016-17. He was then loaned out to Hull City in 2017, and Torino the following year.
