Antonio Conte believes Tottenham have a ‘one per cent possibility’ of finishing fourth in the Premier League ahead of Manchester United, Arsenal and West Ham.

United currently sit fourth in the table while Spurs are seven points behind but have three games in hand.

Spurs, however, are on their worst run since Conte took over as they have lost their last three Premier League games in a row.

And the Italian admits he is not confident about his side’s chances of securing a place in next season’s Champions League.

‘I’ve always said that I have to feel only one per cent the possibility to win the league,’ Conte said in an interview with beIN Sports.

‘Here it is strange because maybe I feel the one per cent possibility to finish fourth.

‘The level of this league is very high and there is not a lot of space for other teams than the top teams.’

In a separate interview with Sky Sports Italy, Conte also suggested that he was left with a ‘weakened’ squad following Spurs’ business in the January transfer window.

‘When you take on a job at a club that hasn’t had success for so long, a lack of confidence is inevitable,’ said Conte.

‘I could see some situations that could be developed, but then when you are in that situation, you understand it better.

‘What happened in January wasn’t straightforward. Four players left the club and they were important ones.

‘Two came in, so in numerical terms, instead of strengthening, on paper the squad was weakened.’
