Tottenham have scored more Premier League goals under Antonio Conte than Arsenal have managed all season.
Spurs started the season poorly under Nuno Espirito Santo, but pulled off a masterstroke by hiring a big name in Conte back in November.
The Italian tactician is one of the finest coaches in world football, having won major honours at Chelsea and Juventus before an impressive Serie A title win with Inter Milan last season before surprisingly leaving in the summer.
Conte has clearly had a tremendous impact at Tottenham, as this stat below highlights so well, with his team scoring more goals during his reign than Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have managed all season…

This is pretty damning for the Gunners, and raises further questions about Arteta’s decision to let Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leave in January.
