The Antonio Conte reign begins on Thursday for us, where we welcome Vitesse to our stadium in the Europa Conference League. We went down 1-0 to the Dutch outfit when Nuno was in charge, but the doom and gloom surrounding our Stadium is no more, at least for now.

The news of Santo's sacking evoked a wide range of emotions from our fans - pity, amusement and anger alike - but our fanbase collectively cheered when the revered Conte was confirmed as the new man in control of the reins. The Premier League and Serie A-winning coach may not have ever envisaged managing a game in the third tier of European football, but together with Fabio Paratici, Conte is being tipped to mould our squad into his own Italian vision as we bid to return to the continent's top table.

Nuno's final game in charge saw us simply capitulate against Manchester United as we were handed a 3-0 defeat, and the Portuguese left the club after losing three of his last four games in charge across all competitions - overseeing a mere 17 in total. Under Santo, we amassed a measly four points from our first three Conference League games and find ourselves third in Group G as things stand - two points behind Vitesse and three behind group leaders Rennes - but we are the highest goalscorers in the group with seven strikes.

Santo came under fire for leaving our strongest XI at home for the first meeting with Vitesse before going on to lose to West Ham United in the top flight, and while Conte is unlikely to field many big-hitters here, the ex-Chelsea boss can nevertheless expect a magnificent reception from the home crowd.

Travelling to hostile away territory to face our side marshalled Conte does not exactly spell optimism for Vitesse, but the Dutch outfit certainly ought to take confidence from their shock win over us two weeks ago. Maximilian Wittek’s78th-minute strike was all that it took for Vitesse to claim all three points on home soil, with that result seeing them cement their second-placed position in Group G, and another memorable success this week would all but end our hopes of progression.

Vitesse have also started to produce the goods on a more consistent basis in the Eredivisie - winning four of their last six, including a 2-1 success over Heerenveen on Saturday thanks to Openda's brace - and they have now scored in 11 consecutive games across all tournaments. Furthermore, Vitesse travel to North London on a five-game winning streak away from home - conceding a mere two goals in that run - but facing our side with a serious case of new manager bounce is a whole different kettle of fish.

Team News

With Conte expected to be granted his work permit in time to take charge of Thursday's game, the Italian could already get to work on utilising his effective 3-5-2 system here in North London.

There is no real way of telling how Conte will set us up for his first game in charge, but Gil and Sessegnon are unlikely to be involved due to hamstring injuries.

Rodon, Doherty and Dele and will all be vying for midweek opportunities under the new manager, who could elect to partner Kane with Moura up top.

As for Vitesse, Wittek - the match-winner against us on matchday three - is set to miss the contest with an injury he sustained in that triumph, while fellow left-back Manhoef 's knee problem is likely to keep him out as well.

As a result, Yann Gboho could feature on the left after playing in the middle at the weekend, with regular lynchpin Matus Bero back from a domestic suspension this week.


Our only previous encounter was on the 21st Of October, two weeks ago where they beat us 1-0 in the first leg
