Carragher: These three Tottenham players are going to become superstars
By Dominic Toner
Jamie Carragher has tipped Tottenham trio Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Harry Kane to become superstars.
The Ex-Liverpool defender was talking on the Monday Night Football programme on Sky Sports One and has praised the potential of the Spurs players.
The three attacking players have been in sensational form recently for the north London club and have benefited from Mauricio Pochettino’s change of system.
The Argentinian manager has switched to a 3-4-3 formation and the attacking trio of Eriksen, Alli and Kane has flourished.
Carragher believes that the Spurs trio can become superstars in the future if they can continue to deliver and lead the club to the title.

“They (Tottenham) went very close last year and I think they lacked a superstar last season,” Carragher said on the MNF programme. “The more you watch Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Harry Kane you think these are going to become superstars.”
Spurs have emerged as serious title contenders this campaign and have moved up to second in the Premier League table.
They will be hoping to bridge the seven-point gap to table toppers Chelsea, who they beat 2-0 at White Hart Lane recently.
Eriksen has managed to recapture his best form in a Spurs shirt and the playmaker has scored seven goals and supplied nine assists in 27 appearances this season.
England pair Alli and Kane have also shown their best form this season and are in great touch in front of goal.
Alli has been directly involved in 16 goals in 27 appearances this season, while team-mate Kane has scored 15 goals in 19 appearances this campaign.
