Tottenham manager Antonio Conte said his players reacted positively to boos from fans at half-time against Liverpool on Sunday and believes the 2-1 loss to the Reds was “unfair”.
Spurs found themselves two goals down at the break after a brace from Mohamed Salah and the players left with boos in their ears after a slow start again.
Conte’s side were much better after the interval and created a string of chances, one of which was converted by Harry Kane, but the north Londoners were unable to find a late leveler so that Liverpool held off for their first Premier League away win this season. .
“I think the fans tried to support us from start to finish, and of course they got the big effort from the players. [in response]”, the Italian told Sky Sports after the game.

“In the first half it was unbalanced, we were 2-0 down and we could have finished better. We didn’t score.
“And then in the second half we attacked a lot and created a lot of chances, and honestly I think the result is unfair.”
