‘It hurts me to say it’ – Arsenal legend makes shock Spurs confession

Tottenham Hotspur may still be without a trophy in well over a decade, but no one can deny the fact that the club has grown significantly in recent years.

Since Pochettino took over five years ago, he has instilled a new mentality and new style of play on the Spurs team.

Tottenham have finished in the top three of the Premier League for the last three seasons, and currently sit third this campaign too.

What this represents is consistent Champions League football, with some pretty impressive European runs along the way, including wins against Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan, and points away at both the Nou Camp and Bernabeu.

Spurs have quickly become one of the most watchable sides in the Premier League, and some would argue that they are now the dominant force in North London.

While he wouldn’t go as far as to say that, Arsenal legend Lee Dixon has admitted that he enjoys watching Spurs, something that may annoy his old faithful fanbase.

He said (Express): “It hurts me to say it at times but I quite like watching Tottenham at times.

“Obviously their form has dipped but they’re an exciting team to watch.

“They’ve got arguably the best striker in Europe in [Harry] Kane.

“They’re against Liverpool who, forget about going for the title right now, are a brilliant side to watch.

“So from a football aesthetics point of view, looking at tactics, it’s going to be fascinating. It’s always a brilliant occasion.

“I think Tottenham are struggling a little bit in that form but with Liverpool and what they’re going for now, it might just make them a potential banana skin for Liverpool.”
