‘It’s not a pre-season friendly’ – Conte pulls off FOUR Tottenham players at once against Arsenal, leaving fans stunned

TOTTENHAM boss Antonio Conte left fans in complete shock after knocking out FOUR players in the second half of their 3-1 loss to Arsenal.

Spurs drew 1-1 with the Gunners after 45 minutes at the Emirates when Harry Kane’s penalty nullified Thomas Partey’s stunning strike.

Sanchez, Bissouma, Doherty and Sessegnon were all brought down by Conte at once

But in the second third the game went past the guests.

Gabriel Jesus restored Arsenal’s lead before Emerson Royal was shown a red card for a terrible fight against Gabriel Martinelli.

Granit Xhaka then quickly handed Arsenal a two-goal lead – with Conte making the four substitutions in the 73rd minute just after Arsenal extended their lead.

But he bizarrely chose to hook attacking players Son Heung-min and Richarlison along with Ivan Perisic and Clement Lenglet.

And they were replaced by the much more defensive quartet of Yves Bissouma, Davinson Sanchez, Ryan Sessegnon and Matt Doherty.

This caused a huge backlash on social media, as fans slammed Conte’s decision to try and limit the score rather than try to get back in the game.

Taking to social media, one person said: “Lmao Conte does five subs at once. This isn’t a pre-season friendly, my boy.”

Another added: “Lol to make it look like a preseason game 🤣😂.”

A third said: “Four subs Antonio? Four? That’s crazy.”

And a fourth replied: “Four submarines at once? Conte’s head is in a frying pan.”

The defeat leaves Spurs four points behind Arsenal, who remain at the top of the Premier League table.

Next up for Conte’s men is a trip to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Champions League on Tuesday, while Arsenal host Bodo/Glimt in the Europa League on Thursday.
