'Scary' - Harry Redknapp names one PL line up he would not swap for Tottenham's starting XI
By Russell Edge
Harry Redknapp has revealed that the one side he would swap Tottenham’s starting XI this season would be Manchester City.
Spurs have enjoyed a bright start to their Premier League campaign and find themselves in third sport with 14 points after a convincing 4-0 win away to newly promoted Huddersfield.
A Harry Kane double, joined by strikes from Ben Davies and Moussa Sissoko, was enough to fire Mauricio Pochettino’s side to victory and keep pressure on the league leaders.
However Tottenham still sit five points behind joint league leaders Manchester United and Manchester City, with the Sky Blues leading the way on goal difference.
Despite the difference in league position, former manager Harry Redknapp insists that he would rather have Pochettino’s starting XI over the first team XI available to Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

“They’re a fantastic group of players at Tottenham. They keep going away from home and slaughtering teams.
“When Dele Alli and Harry Kane are playing together, they are almost unstoppable.”
However the former Birmingham City boss admitted he would be willing to swap for the Lilywhites would be league leaders City, currently led by former Bayern Munich and Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola.
“Man City have got a great squad,” said Redknapp on BT Sports Score.
“They’re starting XI is scary. That would be a tight one.”
