Antonio Conte remains unbeaten as Tottenham boss following his first two matches.

After defeating Vitesse 3-2 in the Europa League, the North London side put in a more Conte-like defensive display in the 0-0 draw at Everton.  

Although the Italian’s side failed to have a shot on target throughout the game, they were incredibly resolute and organised as they claimed just a second clean sheet in 14 matches across all competitions. 

One player in white who impressed at Goodison and, according to football.london, has quickly caught the eye of Conte, is midfielder Oliver Skipp. 

Skipp has been a regular in the Spurs XI this term.

The 21-year-old has become a regular in the starting XI this season, forcing his way into Nuno Espirito Santo’s first-team during pre-season.

Now it’s claimed that the England Under-21 international has already also put himself in the good books of the Italian who reportedly sees Skipp as a key player in Spurs’ long-term future. 

Skipp will be delighted having started 9 of Tottenham’s 11 Premier League matches this term, coming on as a substitute in the other two. 

However, despite having a reputation as a tough, tackling midfielder, he will not be pleased to see himself sitting on a joint leading (with Watford’s Emmanuel Dennis) five yellow cards.

Skipp’s latest caution – at Everton – means he will miss the clash against Leeds United on November 21st, which will hand someone else an opportunity to impress Conte.
