'The fall-out': Jamie Carragher claims he's looking forward to watching Tottenham for two big reasons

Sky Sports regular and Telegraph contributor, Jamie Carragher, has picked out Tottenham’s upcoming season as his most intriguing watch for the 22/23 campaign.

Spurs are all set for a big season after spending more than £100m on new players and finishing last season with a flourish, beating Arsenal to the final top four slot.

All eyes are on Antonio Conte and his Tottenham team, then. The Italian has been a breath of fresh air for the North London outfit and Spurs fans are hopeful of a trophy this season. And Carragher, giving his predictions along with other Telegraph writers, picked out Tottenham and Conte and his ones to watch for the season.

“Watching Antonio Conte and Spurs trying to get among the title contenders… and the fall-out if it doesn’t happen,” Carragher answered in The Telegraph when asked what he was most looking forward to watching.

With players like Kane and Son retained, and solid additions such as Yves Bissouma and Richarlison already having Premier League experience behind them, Conte will be hopeful of building on last year. Of course, other big clubs have strengthened, notably Arsenal – who have also spent north of £100m – and Liverpool and Man City.

TBR’s View: Tottenham Ones To Watch For Everyone

Carragher makes an interesting point here about Tottenham. There is suddenly big expectation on them and while they did well under Conte last season, they rode a wave at times following Nuno Santo’s disaster appointment.

Now, with big money spent and that expectation on them, there is different pressure. Carragher’s comment about potential fall-out is intriguing. And he has a point.

If things start to go a bit wrong, then we’ve already seen how explosive Conte can be in interviews. On the flip side, if things are going well, Conte might well upset the Guardiola and Klopp applecart. Certainly, Spurs are an intriguing watch this season.
