Antonio Conte is on the worst career run in over 12 years after Tottenham Hotspur lost 2-0 at home to Wolves, his third Premier League defeat in a row.
The former Juventus, Chelsea and Inter coach is struggling to make an impact at Spurs and his team has now slipped to eighth place in the English top flight.
Conte had not suffered three consecutive league defeats since he was on the Atalanta bench back in November 2009.
Wolves were 2-0 up within 18 minutes, as Raul Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker made the most of surprisingly poor defending and goalkeeper from a Conte squad.
The coach showed how unhappy he was by hauling off Sessegnon just 28 minutes in to introduce Dejan Kulusevski, who was signed from Juventus in January.
Rodrigo Bentancur, who also arrived from the Bianconeri in the transfer window, was given his first start in midfield.
It’s unlikely to get much better for Conte, because Tottenham’s next Premier League match is against runaway leaders Manchester City next Saturday.
3 – Spurs have lost three consecutive games for the second time in the Premier League this season (also in September 2021 under Nuno); the first time they have had multiple losing streaks of 3+ games in a Premier League campaign since 2004-05 (also two). Fragile. pic.twitter.com/O9ROfeETDy

Years and years of being cheap has caught up to Daniel Levy. Lo Celso and Ndombele for example. Sure, they PAID a lot for them but surely better players were available, for just a few million more? These guys could barely displace Harry Winks from the team. Sessegnon another example. Were there no red flags while scouting him?
As for Kulusevski and Bentacur, honestly the transfer should be investigated. Extremely suspicious that Daniel Levy would pay the reported amount for these two. Look for Tottenham and Juventus to do more suspicious business in the years ahead.
So it’s suspicious they paid 19 mil + 6 in bonuses for Bentancur? His market value is 25 mil on the nose. Kulusevski is worth 30, but has future potential. It’s not that they paid double what they’re worth or something. Like Inter did with Vanheusden and other transfers.
Conte leave Inter because they give him weaker teams, only to join even worse team..
Get over them already.
Not part of Italian Football any more, so can we please stop with all this Spurs nonsense?!
