Tottenham boss Conte tells fans: We need more from you; stadium can become a fortress

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte admits he wants more from the home support in the future.

After a ferocious atmosphere from a record crowd in Thursday's north London derby win over Arsenal, Spurs supporters were in good voice again as Conte's side beat Burnley 1-0 to leapfrog their rivals into the top four.

“For Tottenham, the fans are vital because you have an amazing stadium so to create an amazing atmosphere in every game is very important," said Conte after Harry Kane's penalty in first-half stoppage-time settled a tense match against Burnley.

“The fans, if you feel they stay back to you in a strong way, and for sure it's normal to give much more and also to overcome your real possibility. I think our fans have to play an important role in every game, and this stadium has to become a fortress for Tottenham I think.

"Because it's amazing and has the characteristics to become a fortress for Tottenham."
