Conte: Arteta complains a lot – he should focus on Arsenal

According to Tottenham boss Antonio Conte, Mikel Arteta should concentrate on Arsenal and not complain so much.

Spurs claimed a 3-0 victory over Arsenal in the Premier League on Thursday to stop the Gunners from getting the three points they needed to clinch a top-four finish, with the difference between the sides now down to one point two games remaining.

Son won the penalty that Harry Kane converted for the opening goal, and a foul on the South Korea international saw Rob Holding receive his second yellow card in the 33rd minute. It was Arsenal’s 13th Premier League red card since Arteta took over in December 2019, five more than any other side in that time frame.

Kane doubled his tally, and Son put Spurs 3-0 up early in the second half.

Arteta said he could not give an opinion on the refereeing decisions after the match.

“He has to continue to work because he’s terrific. To hear someone complain all the time is not so good. If we want to complain, we have the possibility every game.

“At Liverpool, do you hear me complain about Fabinho and all the fouls? No. He can take my advice if he wants.

“But if not, I don’t care.” He would “be suspended for six months”.

Conte, however, felt referee Paul Tierney was right in his decision-making as Spurs won a third straight home league game against Arsenal for the first time since 1961.

Conte said:

“He complains a lot. And he has to focus more on his team. He has to focus more on his work.”

The fixture was initially scheduled to be played in January but was postponed upon Arsenal’s request as they contended with absences due to COVID-19, injuries and the Africa Cup of Nations.

Conte added: “[Arteta] complained about the fixtures after Arsenal had an unbelievable postponement with just one COVID case. We’re playing at noon on Sunday, and they don’t play until Monday. So we can’t always complain.

“[Arteta] is an outstanding coach, and I think he can become an essential coach for the future, but I have heard him complain a lot in six months.”

Conte quickly reminded his players that failure to follow up their win over the Gunners with another victory against Burnley at the weekend would make their derby success meaningless.

“For sure, it was a good performance. Our approach to managing the game was very positive from the start until the end,” said Conte.

“Winning this game gave us the possibility to continue [the fight] to take our place in the Champions League. I’m pleased with the commitment.

“I was clear with the players that it’s alright to celebrate, but if we don’t win on Sunday, it doesn’t mean anything.”
