According to the stat, in the Premier League, Espirito Santo’s Spurs ran an average of 100km per game – the worst tally in the league – but under the Italian, they are now running an average of 115km per game – the best total in the division.

The Lilywhites progressed to the semi-finals of the League Cup with a 2-1 victory over London rivals West Ham United, and these fans flocked to Twitter to share their delight.

What did these Spurs fans have to say?

“Conte has done the impossible”

“Ridiculous”
“Wow that’s a big transformation”
“Conte effect.”
“We’re running 15 full kilometres more than we did under Nuno, astonishing”
“That’s insane, turns out football management is just shouting at dudes to run more, who knew”
“That ketchup ban going crazy fr”

As well as earning themselves a spot in the last four of the League Cup, Conte’s Spurs have shown improved form in the Premier League with a place in the Champions League spots in their sights.

And it is clear these fans are delighted with life under the 52-year-old, with the progression in the players’ fitness evident for all to see.
