Antonio Conte's time at Tottenham quickly running out
Antonio Conte's time at Spurs could soon be coming to an end, as there are uncertainties about whether his contract should be renewed or not, especially following their North London derby horror show against Arsenal on Sunday.
Tottenham Hotspur lost both Premier League North London derbies for the first time since 2013/14, as they succumbed to a 2-0 defeat against Arsenal following a Hugo Lloris own goal and a Martin Odegaard goal.
The result leaves Spurs in fifth place on 33 points, five away from Manchester United and Newcastle United, who sit in fourth and third, respectively.
While Tottenham haven't been utterly woeful in terms of results this season, their performances have left much to be desired, and recently, their mixed performance levels have also crept into their points tally, with just one Premier League win since the restart following the World Cup.
As a result, Antonio Conte is facing an increased amount of pressure to get his team going, or else he could be one of the next managers on their way out.
According to the Daily Mail's Sami Mokbel, Conte's future as Spurs manager is looking increasingly uncertain after recent struggles. Both parties feel that accepting any contract extension could be self-defeating if visions don't align.
He joined the club in November 2021, and his current deal expires at the end of this season, yet he remains unsure about whether to commit himself to the club.
Tottenham's options are relatively limited given the managers available, with the primary candidates being former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel and former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino.
What makes it worse for Conte is that his solid defensive style that he has become known for over the years does not seem to be working, with Spurs conceding 27 goals in 19 league games, registering just five clean sheets.
Harry Kane might be scoring goals for fun, but his goals can only save them up to a certain point.
Additionally, fans have continued to pile the pressure on Daniel Levy, with many claiming that there is no clear plan for the club, as they continue to linger in mediocrity.
Tottenham have been linked with plenty of potential incomings in January and the summer, yet given the turbulent time the club is going through, players would be smart to stay away.
