Roy Keane left former Arsenal defender Lee Dixon speechless as he served up one of his killer condemnations as he reflected on the Gunners poor form at the start of this season.

ITV pundits Keane and Dixon were pouring praise on Tottenham's after their impressive performance in a 1-1 Champions League draw against reigning European champions Real Madrid when presenter Mark Pougatch asked whether their display confirmed Spurs have now moved ahead of Arsenal.

"I think most teams in the Premier League are ahead of Arsenal," stated Keane, offering up a cheeky smile to his former on-field rival.

That inspired a giggling Dixon to question how Keane had kept a straight face as he delivered his pun, but the ex-Arsenal full-back had to agree with some of Keane's sentiments.

Dixon conceded that Tottenahm's display against Real Madrid confirmed they are now a step or two ahead of their local rivals Arsenal, with Keane offering up this eulogy for a club he supported as a kid growing up in Cork.

"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."
