Jamie Redknapp has questioned what direction Spurs are going in following today’s 2-1 loss at home to Newcastle.

The defeat capped off a disaster of a week for Antonio Conte after a terrible performance in their 2-0 defeat to Manchester United on Wednesday.

Callum Wilson took advantage of a Hugo Lloris mistake in the 31st minute to put Newcastle in front, despite appeals from Tottenham that Lloris was fouled, the goal stood following a VAR review.

A brilliant solo goal from Almiron put Newcastle 2-0 up before the interval as the winger continued his excellent form.

Harry Kane pulled a goal back for Spurs as they chased an equaliser in the second half, but Newcastle held on to move up to fourth in the table.

Despite a strong start to the season, with Spurs currently in third place, they have lost two out of their last three games, with Conte’s tactics even being brought into question.

With Antonio Conte’s previous side’s he has never been part of a long-term project, with the Italian’s contract up in the summer.

Speaking after the defeat on Sky Sports, Jamie Redknapp questioned what could be happening behind the Spurs, particularly when it comes to Conte and Harry Kane, who has been linked with a move away to Bayern Munich.

“He’s a manager that works in short bursts, he goes into a club for three years, wins, and then normally goes somewhere else.

If I’m a player there, you’ve got to show that you’re loyal as well and you want to be here and be part of this process because someone of his ilk is usually signed up by now.

We are getting very close to Christmas, we are getting close to the World Cup, the season is going to be over very quickly. You need to tie this up. You need to get him sorted so he can talk about the players he wants in.

You need to get Harry Kane signed up, he’s got 18 months left on his contract as well. These are really important factors that you have to get right at the club.”
