Cristian Stellini explains how Tottenham are preparing for Everton without Antonio Conte

Cristian Stellini has made a bullish claim that nothing has changed at Tottenham Hotspur after Antonio Conte’s exit in March.

The Lilywhites will have assistant manager Stellini take charge of the club until the summer, with Ryan Mason assisting him in the dugout. Following Conte’s departure, speculation about who Spurs’ next boss will be has been rife.

Harry Kane’s future has also been up for debate. But according to the Italian coach, Tottenham are preparing for the Premier League game against Everton on Monday night at Goodison Park without any changes.

He said at his pre-match press conference (h/t the Express):

“You try to speculate on this other stuff and we want to play the next match at the best. Nothing changes, in my opinion. Nothing has to change. This is my job. It’s not my job to speak about other things. We prepare the next game following what we did in the past. We are following what we did.”

This is a big hint that we can still see Conte’s tactics on the pitch in some way. The Italian manager liked to set up his teams to keep a clean sheet and played with a five-man backline.

The hallmark of it all was the attacking full-backs. Ivan Perisic and Pedro Porro are both attack-minded wing-backs so we can expect to see the duo have some attacking freedom against the Toffees.

This is an Everton side that has beaten Premier League leaders Arsenal earlier this season but they are still in 18th and fighting for survival. We have to win on Merseyside and nothing else apart from three points will be accepted by the fans.

Stellini gave a bullish presser before the game to shut up any speculation that was going around the club, especially following sporting director Fabio Paratici taking an immediate leave of absence following his ban (for his role in Juventus’ alleged false accounting) being extended worldwide.

This period can even be seen as an audition for Stellini. If he does a good job, then there is no reason why he shouldn’t continue. But Spurs have to be quick. Free agents Julian Nagelsmann (Chelsea) and Mauricio Pocchetino (Real Madrid) could be snapped up before we have a chance to make a move for them.
