Tottenham must find consistency in their performances, otherwise Antonio Conte warned his side will struggle in England and Europe.

Antonio Conte urged Tottenham to find “stability” as his side search for a response to their Premier League hammering when they face Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Spurs overcame second-placed champions Manchester City in the English top flight but were stunned 4-1 by strugglers Leicester City a week later on Saturday.

Tottenham’s next challenge sees them go to out-of-form Milan in the Champions League last 16 and Conte called on Spurs to recover at San Siro.

Conte said at his pre-match press conference when asked why Spurs have struggled.

Head coach Conte said his side are “working on” dealing with the increased pressure, though injuries are another crucial factor to Tottenham’s success.

Conte said after losing Rodrigo Bentancur, Yves Bissouma and captain Hugo Lloris to injury.

Milan ended a seven-game winless run across all competitions with a 1-0 league victory over Torino on Friday to somewhat ease the mounting pressure on coach Stefano Pioli.

However, an unfavourable result in Europe will only add to calls for the removal of Pioli, who ended Milan’s 11-year wait for the Scudetto last season with triumph in Serie A.

Conte believes managing in England and Italy comes with many different challenges and pressures, given his home country consider football not only a sport but as “war”.

He added.
