Danny Murphy feels Tottenham are in a great place compared to going into the new season, boasting the better squad and likely to finish above the Red Devils in the Premier League table.

Spurs finished fourth last season and have enjoyed an impressive summer in the transfer market, bringing in the likes of Richarlison, Ivan Perisic, and Clement Lenglet.

Manchester United have brought in Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez and Christian Eriksen, not being able to use football to attract players, which Tottenham can.

Comparing the two squads and their credentials this season, former Liverpool star Murphy thinks there is an obviously superior club and he fancies Spurs to pick up some silverware over the coming campaign.

‘Looking at last season’s results and their business in the summer transfer window, I’d back Tottenham to finish above United again, and win a long-awaited trophy before them as well,’ Murphy told the .

‘United were second a couple of years ago but it papered over the cracks because you never felt the manager was given full control and the players sensed that. Ten Hag is disciplined and ruthless, exactly what United require, but Conte is the same with the bonus of already being tested in the Premier League.

‘Which squad would you rather have? I think Conte will be happy with what he’s got. He can pick a front three of , Son Heung-min and Richarlison. If Ronaldo goes, United have , Anthony Martial and . It’s not the same.

‘While Ten Hag is clear about what he wants, he can’t progress without the right ammunition. Meanwhile, Daniel Levy is backing Conte like no other manager before. I think the run of 14 years without a trophy can end this season.’
