Antonio Conte to introduce 3-4-3 formation as he takes training session this morning

Antonio Conte will be confirmed as new Tottenham manager later today.

As MailOnline exclusively revealed yesterday morning, Nuno Esposito Santo was axed as Spurs head coach, the club confirming the Portuguese’s departure news just before 10am.

The club’s increasingly influential director of football Fabio Paratici has moved quickly to identify Nuno’s replacement with a deal in principle for former Chelsea boss Conte.

Antonio Conte is set to be confirmed as Tottenham’s new manager on today (Tuesday) and is expected to take a training session

It is understood Conte, who has a long-term relationship with Paratici, has agreed an 18 month contract with a pro-rata salary of around £13million.

However, when the 52-year old first appointed as the Chelsea manager chose to field his team in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Only after a disappointing 3-0 defeat against Arsenal, Conte decided to switch to the 3-4-3 formation and Chelsea immediately took to it and went on a 13-game winning run.

Spurs under Nuno were a docile attacking team who didn’t have a coherent attacking strategy. Against Manchester United in their previous game who came into the game on the back of a 5-0 humiliation against Liverpool, Spurs were not able muster even a single shot on target.
