Tottenham Hotspur's assistant manager Cristian Stellini has blamed Spurs' "unattractive" style on the hectic schedule the north London side currently faces.
Spurs have been fighting on three fronts this season, with Premier League, Champions League, and Carabao Cup fixtures all packed in ahead of the World Cup. And Antonio Conte's side have been criticised by fans for their unattractive football.
But speaking ahead of Spurs' clash with Nottingham Forest on Wednesday evening, Stellini said: "I watched many games…It's not easy to find attractive football because many teams or maybe the best team in this league but in all the leagues in Europe."

He continued: "We are playing a lot and sometimes you have to manage the energy and every team has a problem in the last five games. I didn't see a really attractive football for everyone.
"Maybe only from teams that didn't play in Europe competitions. So we can say that because we know very well how difficult is to manage the energy in the last month so Liverpool has problems.
"Everyone has problems and we play a great match. And we cannot say we didn't play an attractive football last game. We are happy we maybe use a particular time in the game but that's it for everyone. This is for anyone."
