Antonio Conte makes disappointed claim after Tottenham's defeat to Southampton

Tottenham suffered a 2-3 loss to Southampton on Wednesday. Jan Bednarek opened the scoring with an owngoal, however, Armando Broja's goal equalised the score. Son Heung-Min put Spurs ahead in the 70th minute, but within two minutes Saints managed to score twice and take the three points home. After the game Spurs head coach Antonio Conte has talked about the game, revealing how disappointed he was. The Italian said:
"For sure we have to be disappointed because after our first half where we struggled a lot and I think they were good but I think we made many, many mistakes, many mistakes, especially with the ball.   "I think this type of situation created a bit of instability, mental instability in my team, especially in the first half. In the second half we started to play, we started to press in the right way and I didn't change anything compared to the first half.   "In the second half we created chances to score but also in the first half. Every time we played the ball in the right way we created a situation to go to score, but I repeat we made many mistakes in the first half, important mistakes.   "In the second half we did well, we scored and then you have to be more good to defend because I have seen the two goals and we conceded twice with the defensive line that stayed there.   "We have to be more accurate but I know very well this season and I repeat, we are going to struggle to get three points.   "I say this before and I continue to repeat. I think that we are improving in many aspects but then we are still too emotional.   "Against Leicester we won 3-2 and we were losing 2-1. Today we were winning 2-1 and we lost 3-2. I think on this aspect we have to improve because if we want to grow as a team and try to be competitive, the first thing that you have to improve is stability, not to be up and down, up and down, up and down.   "I think that this is a situation that we have to improve and also I repeat, in a team it's important to have players with experience to manage the situation during the game.   "I repeat it was a pity because my players they gave 120 per cent today and the effort was maximum. I cannot say that I don't see the right attitude or the right commitment. I saw the maximum commitment.   "For this reason we have to try to avoid these defeats because today I felt we could have avoided this defeat, especially when you go 2-1 up and there are 15-20 minutes to play.   "We have to try to manage the situation in a better way but it happened and we have to take experience from this game and try to improve."
