Nasty’s nice for Tottenham boss Antonio Conte before final showdown

has demanded Tottenham take momentum from their dramatic victory at Bournemouth into tomorrow’s ‘cup final’ at Marseille.

Spurs were heading for a third consecutive Premier League defeat when Kieffer Moore’s brace put the Cherries 2-0 up early in the second half at the Vitality Stadium.

Conte had rested players before the showdown, where his men require a point to reach the last 16, but threw on a number of regulars later on and it paid off as Ryan Sessegnon and Ben Davies got them back on terms before Rodrigo Bentancur’s last-gasp clincher.

‘This win has to give us enthusiasm and passion to go into Marseille and to play a final for us to go to the next round of the Champions League,’ said the Italian, who is suspended for the tie in France after being sent off late on against Sporting Lisbon in last week’s 1-1 draw.

‘The only situation I ask of my players is that we show more personality and take more responsibility.

‘I think in the second half, despite conceding the second goal, we started to play nasty, with a will and desire to hurt the opponent.

‘We created many chances and at the end we won.’
