“A strategy” – Cristian Stellini says new Tottenham habit is something that could be made use of

Cristian Stellini believes Tottenham Hotspur’s late fightbacks could be a ‘strategy’

Speaking after Tottenham’s comeback win against Olympique Marseille in the Champions League as quoted by Football. London, Tottenham Hotspur assistant coach Cristian Stellini has claimed that the habit of making late comebacks could be a strategy.

He went on to explain saying that the ability of Spurs to sustain their energy better over the whole ninety minutes could give them an edge over the opposition to make the late push to get results.

This could be down to the intense fitness levels that Conte tries to instil into his players. We all know all too well about the Italian tactician’s rigorous fitness regimes and that seems to be paying off for the Lilywhites.

It is not for the first time this season that Tottenham made the comeback to win against Marseille midweek. Even their win against Bournemouth came after them conceding two goals early and then scoring three at the back end.

It is a very interesting thesis that Stellini has offered here that this new habit of the Lilywhites could be used as a strategy but ultimately, it is an idea that is not always going to work and Conte will not want this to be the way to move forward.

“Maybe it is all of this, personality and energy. But we know very well. In this type of stadium and this type of match, a knockout, it is not very easy”

“The stadium was very hot in the first half, and sometimes it is normal to give the possibility to the opponent to play, to use the energy you have in the second half. It could also be a strategy. We need to try to play all the 90 minutes in the same level”

Ultimately, making comebacks is not something you can plan or prepare for but the fitness levels of the Tottenham players are really paying off. They need to continue maintaining the same standards throughout games.

It is important for Spurs to start getting more convincing wins than they are right now. It feels like Conte’s men are literally scraping through wins and this is definitely not ideal for a club with title ambitions.

Ultimately, any win, convincing or not only gives us three points and we can take it and move on. However, it will always be great to see improvements.
