Gary Neville names favourite team to watch (and it’s not Chelsea or Man United)
The former Manchester United defender explains why he is a big fan of Tottenham Hotspur
Gary Neville has revealed that he has enjoyed watching Tottenham Hotspur more than any other Premier League side over the past 18 months.
The north London side finished in third place in the Premier League table last term after challenging Leicester City for the title throughout the 2015-16 season before a disappointing end to the campaign.
Tottenham have made a stuttering start to the current season after going 12 games unbeaten before a 2-1 loss to Premier League leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge after Victor Moses’ winner.
Spurs suffered their second Premier League defeat of the campaign on Sunday afternoon after Mauricio Pochettino’s men lost 1-0 to Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Former Red Devils defender and Sky Sports pundit Neville explained why he has been disappointed with Tottenham this season.
Neville told Sky Sports: “They’re the team I’ve enjoyed watching the most over the past 18 months. I think the coach is fantastic.
“I like the youth, the speed, the energy, how dynamic they are – I like everything about them. But I was disappointed today [against United last weekend]. They’ve sent themselves such a high standard.”
Neville added: “They lacked a little belief. They were a little bit passive and a little bit uncertain. That’s not Tottenham for me. They dipped below the standard.”
Tottenham signed five players in the summer transfer window as Pochettino looked to cement their place as title challengers.
Harry Kane scored 25 times in 37 Premier League games for the Lilywhites in the 2015-16 season.
