Some Tottenham fans on social media have laid into Roy Keane for his comments about Spurs ahead of the club’s 4-0 demolition of Burnley yesterday.
Keane told Sky Sports that Tottenham are an average team without Son and Kane, insisting that they would finish mid-table at best.
The Former Manchester United man also questioned the quality of Sergio Reguilon, suggesting that Real Madrid would not have let the left-back leave if he was good enough.
That sparked a row between Jamie Redknapp and Keane, with the former Spurs midfielder insisting that the North Londoners have enough quality to challenge at the top.
Even after Spurs demolished Burnley 4-0 and moved to within six points off a top-four spot with a game in hand, Keane insisted that Jose Mourinho’s men had no chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
Some Spurs fans on social media felt that it was a clear case of anti-Tottenham bias from Keane and pointed out that many players from the Lilywhites’ starting eleven would walk into the Manchester United side.
Man thinks Burnley have a better midfield and more players that would get into top 4 teams, he is an embarrassingly bad pundit and hides his disdain for us poorly.

If you take Rashford and Fernandes out the UTD team they would be pretty average to and Salah and Virgil out of Liverpool and etc etc

Unpopular opinion: Roy Keane has no football knowledge, he’s only a pundit for entertainment purposes pic.twitter.com/eYbUjNE7uu

Roy Keane was an absolute disgrace today. I’m a Spurs fan I pay £47 a month I deserve some decent sensible punditry. Spurs have been top 4 for 4 out of 5 seasons. We are 4pts off Chelsea to dismiss us as if we are nothing is simply not a balanced view 😯

Just seen Roy Keane's "analysis" on Spurs before the game and it was the embodiment of arguments on Twitter: unable to get over his own bias, ignores any facts brought up because he can't admit he is wrong and if in doubt just shout louder than the other person.

For a man who is a total failure as manager he gets plenty of platform on @SkySportsPL

Spurs Web Opinion
I really do not think Keane’s comments are worth get angry over because unlike the likes of Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher or Jermaine Jenas, Keane never really makes insightful points as a pundit. He is employed by Sky Sports to make brash and sensationalist statements like this one so that they get eyeballs on the show.
