Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte blasted his own players in a post-match rant after his side drew 3-3 against Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday.

Spurs were set to seal the victory when substitute Ivan Perisic scored in the 74th-minute to make it 3-1 after goals from Pedro Porro and Harry Kane.

Southampton hit back with a goal from Theo Walcott before James Ward-Prowse scored a stoppage-time penalty to clinch a late point.

Spurs haven’t won away from home in five matches and Conte didn’t hold back at full-time.

Conte: Tottenham have won nothing in 20 years

“If we are going to discuss the penalty, it means we don’t want to see the other situations,” Conte said.

“I think it’s much better to go into the problem because the problem is that, for another time we showed that we are not a team.

“We are 11 players that go into the pitch. I see selfish players, I see players that don’t want to help each other and don’t put their heart [in].

“Why? Because they are used to it here, they are used to it. They don’t play for something important. They don’t want to play under pressure, they don’t want to play under stress.

“It is easy in this way. Tottenham’s story is this. Twenty years there is the owner and they never won something but why? The fault is only for the club, or for every manager that stays here. I have seen the managers that Tottenham had on the bench.

“You risk to disrupt the figure of the manager and to protect the other situation in every moment.

“Until now I try to hide the situation but now, no because I repeat, I don’t want to see what I have seen today because this is unacceptable and also unacceptable for the fans.

“They follow us, pay for their ticket and to see the team another time, to have this type of performance is unacceptable. We have to think a lot about this.”
