Tottenham boss Conte happy defeating Burnley: That top 4 is alive proves we're doing well

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte was delighted after their 1-0 defeat of Burnley.

Harry Kane's penalty proved the only goal of the game.

Conte said, "To stay until the end with a possibility to take a place in the Champions League - we've done a really good job. My players are doing a really good job. To imagine this possibility in November was very, very difficult. I am here to thank my players, because they followed me from my first day at Tottenham, showed great desire to change the situation and fight for something.

"A Champions League place is very important in England. It's like getting an important trophy in another league. Arsenal play tomorrow, at this moment they are two points below us. If they don't win, the ball is in our hands – but at this moment the ball is still in their hands.

"You know very well that we face maybe the worst team to test our nerves. Burnley are fighting to avoid the relegation zone. It was positive, another clean sheet and we showed great stability. We are a very stable team. I'm always repeating that it's not simple to play against us.

"We have to continue in this way. The last game will be very important for us. There is no easy game in England, so we need to go to Norwich to be strong and get three points. We'll see what happens at the end of the season."
