Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte believes that Monday’s match against Brentford will not be easy for them.

Tottenham and Brentford will face each other in the first Premier League match following the World Cup break on Boxing Day. Conte thinks that The Bees will put up a challenge.

“You know very well when you play, especially away, against Brentford, it is not an easy game,” the Italian told SPURSPLAY.

“I remember from last season they are a really good team, physically they are really strong, they are very good on set-pieces, so it won’t be easy for this reason.

“It will be very important for my players, for me, for my staff, for the whole environment to go into the game quickly and to understand that we have to restart the season in the best possible way.”

At the same time, Conte is looking forward to Spurs’ first competitive game since November 12.

“We are really excited [to be back] – honestly, it’s not easy after the World Cup and only eight days when you played the final and semi-final to play so quickly, but it’s okay, it’s a positive on one hand.

“On another hand, you have the players who played the World Cup in a different physical condition, but it’s okay, football during the Christmas period for sure is fantastic to play, but at the same time, for many players, we have to try to push them and to find a good physical condition.”
