Jamie Carragher has warned Liverpool FC that Tottenham are set to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season.

Spurs underlined their status as one of the top teams in the Premier League on Monday night when they claimed an impressive 3-0 win at Manchester United to maintain their 100 per cent start to the season.

Tottenham claimed the three points as a goal from Harry Kane and two from Lucas Moura in the second half handed the north London side all three points at Old Trafford.

Spurs are now in second place in the Premier League table and level on points with early pace-setters Liverpool FC as the Lilywhites look to try and establish themselves as one of the main contenders for the title this term.

And Carragher feels that Liverpool FC and the other Premier League challengers should be wary of the threat posed by the north London side this term.

Speaking on Monday Night Football, Carragher said: “Everybody’s talking about Liverpool potentially challenging Manchester City. Why aren’t people talking about this Tottenham team who’ve finished above Liverpool for seven out of eight years?

“This is a top team and the difference between that and becoming a great team is winning at places like this. They got the huge win at Chelsea last season and played really well at Anfield in a 2-2 draw, so maybe the tide is turning in these big games.

“The thing we all questioned over the summer was the lack of signings,” he added. “Will they live to regret that going forward, if they get really close? It’s not about the first XI and their quality, it’s the squad and how many of them went to the World Cup.

“They’ve got nine points out of nine including two away games, one of them at Old Trafford. What a brilliant start and it just shows why we speak so highly of Pochettino and we have done for the last four or five years.”

Tottenham will look to make it four wins from four in the Premier League this weekend when they take on Watford away from home on Sunday afternoon.

Liverpool FC, meanwhile, are set to take on Leicester on Saturday lunchtime.
