Tottenham news: Antonio Conte wants Spurs to be more clinical but continues to defend Son Heung-min

Tottenham maintained their unbeaten start to the Premier League season with a 2-1 win over Fulham, though manager Antonio Conte was not fully satisfied.

The Italian has called on his side to be more clinical and convert more of their opportunities into goals. 

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Harry Kane scored in each half as Spurs made it six top-flight matches without defeat this term.

Kane's strike with quarter of an hour left appeared to put the game to bed but Aleksandar Mitrovic reduced the deficit with seven minutes left to set up a nervy finale.

"For sure the performance, yeah I like the performance," Spurs boss Conte said. "Also against Southampton we had a good performance.

"If I have to find a situation that we need to improve, it is to be more clinical because when you create so many chances, you have to score but we scored two goals disallowed, then the crossbar.

"Yeah, I enjoyed a lot to see my players play the ball with quality and personality."

Son Heung-min saw his goal drought extend into a sixth match but looked back to his usual best against Fulham with an effort against the crossbar and a cross-cum-shot disallowed for offside.

Conte added: "This is not only for Sonny (in the matches), but also the training sessions. We have Fraser (Forster) that sometimes he made a fantastic save to him in the training session and sometimes he is struggling to score but this is a period.

"I continue to tell you I am not worried because when I see this type of performance from my players, Sonny included, I am not worried. I know they are going to score many goals."
