Jose Mourinho names surprise team as his favourite to watch in Premier League

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has somewhat surprisingly named Aston Villa as his favourite side to watch this season.

Spurs ended a four-game winless streak in the Premier League with a 3-0 victory against Leeds on Saturday courtesy of goals from Harry Kane, Heung min-Son and Toby Alderweireld.

Jose Mourinho's side lie four points off the top of the table after coming through a tricky run of fixtures which saw them take on four of the so-called 'big six' in the latter end of 2020.

They next face cup games against Brentford and Marine before a trip to Villa on January 13.

And speaking to BT Sport at full-time Mourinho insisted he does not expect things to get any easier for his side – heaping praise upon Dean Smith and his Villa team.

"When people said after we played the top six easier games are coming of course I didn't believe it," Mourinho said.

"Leeds is a team capable of causing problems for everyone and the next one, Aston Villa, is my favourite team in the Premier League at the moment.

"It's the team that I most enjoy to watch, it's a team with lots of very good players who are very well coached and this is what is waiting for us."

Despite being mired in a relegation battle last season Villa are flying high in the current campaign, and find themselves seventh with a game in hand on all those above them.

Mourinho, meanwhile, appeared satisfied with Spurs' performance against Leeds – but believes they can still improve.

He added: "The three points are very important. I think we understood well how they could hurt us and how we could hurt them and in that aspect I am happy.

"I still think that we can and we have to do better."
