Stop moaning! Antonio Conte tells Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta to ‘focus more on his team’

After Tottenham beat Arsenal 3-0 in a contentious north London derby, Antonio Conte instructed Mikel Arteta to’stop moaning.’

Spurs are now just a point behind Arsenal in the race for the fourth Champions League position, thanks to two goals from Harry Kane in the first half and one from Son Heung-min after the break.

The penalty granted by referee Paul Tierney for a shove by Cedric Soares on Son for the opener, and then a second yellow card for Arsenal defender Rob Holding after he appeared to thrust his elbow in the face of the Korean after half an hour, were the night’s talking points.

Arsenal manager Arteta was so outraged by the incident that he refused to speak about it afterwards. “I can’t do it as I want to be on the touchline on Monday (against Newcastle).

“I can’t lie and if I speak about it I will be suspended so I prefer not to. A beautiful game has been destroyed.”

Spurs manager Conte was fast to hit back. The Italian said: “Mikel Arteta is doing a really good job but I listened to him complain a lot.

“I think he has to be focused more on his team and not complaining.

“The red card for me was clear. If we want to complain we could do it every game.

|This is my advice. If he wants to take my advice it’s up to him. I don’t care. In six months I have listened to him complaining a lot. It’s not good.”

This game was postponed earlier this year at the request of Arsenal, and Conte explained: ‘”They had the game postponed due of Covid, and they only had one player with Covid.

“I haven’t forgotten that. I could complain about playing our next game at 12 o’clock on Sunday when Arsenal play on Monday night. They have more rest.”
