Antonio Conte humiliated all offers Pierre-Emile Hoybjerg deliberately gave up his festive embrace after their brilliant victory over Manchester City.

Harry KaneA header at an injured time gave Tottenham a well-deserved 3-2 victory at the Etihad on Saturday to bring the visitors back to the course, to engage in the top four and unfold the race for the title.

Not surprisingly, Conte went crazy from his celebrations on the cow line after Kane turned into an envelope, and full-time he went out on the field to hug and congratulate his players.

The cameras recorded the cheerful reaction of the Italian when he went to grab Hoybjerg, who turned away from him, going in the opposite direction.

On the eve of Tottenham’s clash with Burnley on Wednesday night, Conte explained that he saw a funny side after watching the video in response, when the Dane simply did not see how his manager approached him.

“I saw the video because Anthony [Spurs’ press officer] showed me, ”he said.

“Sure, I celebrated with all my players. He didn’t see me. Then we recovered in the locker room because we celebrated with him and all the players.

“Pierre is another important player for us, he is young but experienced and now with him [Rodrigo] Bentancourt we realized midfielders, [Harry] Winx, [Oliver] Skip, players I can count on.

“We have to keep working, we need a little time and patience. I have seen that we are improving in many ways. Then be available. The team is fuller than before [Dejan] Kulusevsky and Bentancourt.

“Now I can turn around and relax. For example, the midfielders against Man City showed a fantastic game, and the effort was at its height.

“We have to see if they recover well or if I have to go through a rotation because we have a lot of games these days.”

The Spurs are eighth in the Premier League table ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Turf Moore, behind Manchester United in fourth place by seven points but with three games left against the Red Devils.
