“I unquestionably envisage the [Burnley] ‘keeper and the two centre-halves are ameliorate than what Spurs posses got,” he opened, per .
“I’d likely even say the two lads in midfield. I visualize Tottenham keep got so a great deal general players, we tattle about the compel Spurs hold on them to achieve in the top four, but if you bring Kane and Son out of that team, Spurs are an typical Premiership couple and I’m being polite.”
Redknapp was then brought in and what followed was laudable television, with the two passionately defending their side of the debate, as outlined below.
Redknapp: “I don’t think it’s an normal team, no, or an natural squad. It’s complete of internationals, there’s a mountain of side in this team, I don’t imagine they’re playing to their maximum. If you look at the back four, Dier plays for his country, Sanchez plays for Colombia, Lloris plays for the unit one country.”
Keane: “Playing for your innocent doesn’t accomplish you a upright player. If you can net a round you can play for your simple these days. It doesn’t make you a peak player. Dier has been giving goals away every week, last week he gave a goal away.”
Redknapp: “Yeah, he probably has. I admit with that. He’s been chopping and changing, playing with a different musician every week, that doesn’t help. I don’t project that Jose knows his first couple but I don’t think you can turn around and natter this isn’t a strong party - it’s entire of internationals.”

Keane: “He’s not bad. Would he earn into any of the first teams in England? Man United wouldn’t bear him, Man City wouldn’t endure him, I’m not even sure Leicester would bear him.”
Redknapp: “I visualize he’s a ameliorate artist than what you’re saying, Roy. He’d gain into your Man United duo correct now.”
Keane: “They obtain looking at the Spurs team. I project Spurs were revise two or three years ago with Trippier, Eriksen and when Alli had the hunger. Spurs are upright on their day, like lots of teams and Jamie makes the atom there that they’ve got lots of internationals. If you catch the ball, you’re going to stagecraft for your country. If you don’t show for your innocent now, you are a mouldy player. That doesn’t guarantee anything.”
Keane: “Jamie, which players from this Spurs brace would obtain in Liverpool, Man City team, Chelsea’s team? You wouldn’t fondle any of them, [except for] Son and Kane.”
Redknapp: “Hojbjerg? Alderweireld would procure in Man United’s couple fix now, I visualize he would. I think the goalkeeper isn’t ethical enough, I accept with you there. The two right-backs they’ve signed, I don’t trust. The back four isn’t virtuous enough. I’ll describe you what Reguilon is as righteous of a left-back than there is in the country, so I project you’ve got that wrong. I suppose he’s a status player.”
Redknapp: “Oh, does that matter? Because Real Madrid let him go, that doesn’t set about you a upright player? That’s like enumeration if you don’t drama for your idyllic you’re not a upright player, Roy.”
Keane: “Doherty is playing for Wolves, who in the last year have done well and you’d look for them to compete. They tout him to Spurs for £15m, does anyone visualize Doherty is going to set about Spurs a top-four team? Doherty, really?”
Redknapp: “Yeah, I agree with you. Are you recital that Reguilon isn’t a upright performer then?”
