Tottenham is creating more on offense too
The numbers are down in a good way defensively for Tottenham and likewise, since Conte has taken over, the offensive numbers are up for Spurs.
The most obvious difference for the team is in goals. Under Nuno Santo, the team scored nine goals in ten matches, less than a goal per game. Under Conte, Spurs are up to 1.75 goals per game with seven in four.
In all fairness, Spurs should be scoring more under Conte as they are shooting more. Tottenham is still not shooting enough but the Lilwhites are averaging almost two more shots per game getting more than 12 off per match now versus just over 10 per game before.
The shots on goal are up nearly half a shot per match with more than 4 per game on target despite not getting any on target in Conte’s first match against Everton. With an expected goals average that has gone from 1 goal to 1.7, Spurs are doing what they should.
The improved shooting and scoring output combined with the better defensive numbers has resulted in Spurs getting close to level again with their overall goal difference. The team’s goal difference has improved from -7 to -1 under Conte.
Whether you look at the record or the statistics while the sample size is small and the schedule has been kind Spurs are definitely an improved team under Conte.
