Jamie Carragher has named Tottenham Hotspur as his favourite team to watch in the Premier League – not Liverpool.

The north London side have made a strong start to the season following a return of six victories in their opening 10 games in the Premier League.

Tottenham are in third place in the Premier League table but eight points adrift of leaders Manchester City following last weekend’s 1-0 loss to Manchester United.

The Lilywhites were 3-1 winners against La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday night thanks to goals from Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen at Wembley.

Spurs have challenged for the Premier League title in the past two seasons after finishing in third place before ending up as runners-up behind Chelsea last term.

Former Liverpool defender Carragher revealed that Tottenham are his favourite team to watch despite the retired centre-half’s well-known links to the Merseyside club.

“Why am I such a big fan?” Carragher told the Daily Telegraph. “I retired as a player almost five years and since moving into punditry Pochettino’s Tottenham are the team I have enjoyed watching most.

“They are everything you want in terms of balance, attacking, defending, bringing youngsters through and improving players.

“Their constant changing of their set-up from a back three to back four typifies Pochettino’s coaching skill.

“We see other managers do this and think it is because of uncertainty, not knowing the best team or system. When I see Spurs do it, it is seamless, everyone knowing and understanding their role.”

Tottenham have lost to their biggest title rivals Chelsea and Manchester United in the Premier League so far this season.

The north London side have never won the Premier League title and their second-placed finish was their best return for a top-flight campaign since the Premier League started in 1992.
