Roy Keane has claimed that Tottenham as well as other Premier League sides are now ‘ahead of Arsenal’, and former Gunners’ defender Lee Dixon supposedly nodded in agreement.
The North-London club have been in the firing line this week after surrendering the lead against Watford before losing at Vicarage Road on Saturday, and every pundit and fan alike has somehow become an expert on Arsenal.
There have been a number of pundits and fans moving to turn on the manager, and a number of the players, but as we sit tied with champions Chelsea in joint-fifth place after only eight matches, there is still plenty of time to resurrect a title challenge and cement a place in the top four.
Regardless of the early stage in the campaign, pressure is mounting on our club, a regular occurrence after any defeat for us especially, and now it is being claimed by Roy Keane that we have fallen behind our neighbours Spurs.
“I think most teams in the Premier League are ahead of Arsenal,” said the former Manchester United captain . Former Arsenal right-back Lee Dixon then nodded his head in agreement.
Keane continued: “Spurs now are rock solid, a really good team. They went to Real Madrid, they were very brave and showed a lot of courage,” he stated.
“They manager and players deserve great credit because this is a top Tottenham team now. They can be a threat in the Champions League, getting into the knock-out stages and getting to a quarter-final maybe.”
Tottenham were impressive in earning an unlikely draw away to Real Madrid on Tuesday Evening, while we have been banished to the Europa League for the current campaign, but to say that they have overtaken us after finishing above us ONCE is a little bit farfetched no?
Is it biased to think we are still the best team in North London?
