Tottenham manager Antonio Conte said it was time for the team to exploit their game against Burnley being called off.

Spurs were set to take on the bottom three side on Sunday away from home, but heavy snowfall in the north of England resulted in a postponement of the fixture.

Conte was disappointed at the game not going ahead, but believes that it gives the team a chance to do more work on the training pitch in the coming days.

"A big disappointment because we were ready to play and we prepared for the game, and all the travel," Conte said.

"But at same time I think the Premier League made the right decision to save the situation for the players and the fans. For everybody. It's disappointing but the decision was right.

"Ten minutes before the snow is worse than it was before and in this condition, it's not football. I want to play football, I want to play. In this type of situation it's impossible. There's serious risk of injury and this is not good.

"For sure, we have to exploit the situation, to have a training session tomorrow to prepare for two important games against Brentford and Norwich. We'll have more time to prepare and need to exploit in the right way."
