Antonio Conte has urged Tottenham players and fans to play the game against Burnley ‘together’.
Spurs are set to host the Clarets on Sunday (May 15), as it will be their last home match of the season.
Conte’s men celebrated a 3-0 victory over Arsenal on Thursday and shortened the gap between the Gunner into a point.
However, there are two matches remaining and the Italian manager asked the fans and players to play as one on Sunday.
Talking via club’s official website, the 52-year-old stated:
“It will be very important to get three points because we have only one way of trying to take a place in the Champions League and to put pressure onto Arsenal, because they have one point more.
“We’ve played two important games, against Liverpool and against Arsenal – and for sure, mentally, we have to recover very well, but there are only two games to go, no time to think, we have to go straight to play another amazing game and I hope to listen and to see the same atmosphere in our stadium.
“For this reason, I ask our fans on Sunday to be with us from the start until the end and to help us, because they can play an important part in these final games of the season.
“It’s vital – I repeat, it’s our last game of the season at home, we are playing for something important, for a good achievement for everybody, for the club, for the players, for the fans… for everybody.
“We (players and fans) have to play this game against Burnley together. It will be very important to support us from the start until the end with the same intensity that they showed against Arsenal.” added the coach.
