Cheeky! Tottenham boss Conte brackets Arsenal with 'West Ham, Everton'

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has enjoyed a dig at Arsenal when discussing his job with the Italian press.

The Italian recently replaced Nuno Espirito Santo at Spurs but has already attempted to stir the hatred between the North London rivals.

The 52-year-old excluded the Gunners from the Premier League's elite clubs and instead believes they are on a par with West Ham and Everton.

"The team is young and has a lot of room for improvement, but the competition is fierce with the four giants Chelsea, City, Liverpool, United, and then Arsenal, West Ham, Everton," he said in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Conte will face his first North London Derby on January 16 when his side host the Gunners.
