The Dutchman says he has been more impressed by Roberto Martinez's Everton this season, but admits Spurs' need to finish in the top four trumps all elseTottenham under Andre Villas-Boas this season.
Spurs lie seventh in the table, having scored just 15 goals in 15 Premier League matches under the former Chelsea boss, who has been criticised by various figures in the media and many of club's fans.
And Davids revealed he expected more of his former club after a summer which saw them splash out over £100 million on new signings.
"To be honest, I don't like watching Spurs," he told Absolute Radio. "Do you know what I mean? How they play, I expected more. And if you have a manager that says he wants to play attacking football...
"I loved to see Everton play against Arsenal last week. I was like "Woah, I hope it's not the first time for Everton that they play like this!" Because I think it's a good thing.
"If I see Tottenham play I'm not that convinced. But at the end of the day it’s all about results.
"If AVB comes in fourth, then he did a great job. If he didn't, then it’s on his account."
