It really wouldn't be a Super Sunday without Roy Keane making the entire thing about himself, would it?
The Manchester United legend pulled no punches when he was a player, and takes the same approach to his media duties. Last week he was demanding United sign Harry Kane as if it was as simple as a square pass, and this weekend Tottenham were in his crosshairs once again.
Mauricio Pochettino's men lost to Liverpool at Anfield, with Jordan Henderson and a Mohamed Salah penalty overturning Harry Kane's lightning-quick opener to pile the misery on the north London club.
FT: #LFC 2 Spurs 1: That's a massive win for the PL leaders who restore their six-point lead at the top and extend their proud unbeaten run at Anfield to 45 league games. Kept their heads and deservedly triumphed thanks to second-half goals from Henderson and Salah. Gutsy.— James Pearce (@JamesPearceLFC) October 27, 2019
With the Reds full-backs, their primary creative force, once again playing a starring role in the victory, the comparison was drawn post-match between the duo of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson and Tottenham's Serge Aurier and Danny Rose. If you were putting it nicely, you'd say the latter weren't quite as good.
If you were Roy Keane on the other hand, you'd call them 'dumb and dumber.'
"Chalk and cheese," he said, via Sky Sports, when asked to compare the options available to both managers.
"The two Tottenham full-backs, dreadful. Dumb and dumber, I'd call them.
OMG ROY KEANE HAHA— 🎀 𝒯𝒾𝓂𝒶 🎀 || ℓғc || ❤ (@Tiima89) October 27, 2019
Spurs two full backs " Dumb and Dumber "
I'm fucking DYING hahahahahahahahahaahhaahahahahah
Roy Keane is gonna kill me
Did Roy Keane really call the Spurs full backs dumb and dumber 😁, refreshing for someone to tell it like it is but I think that’s maybe going a bit over the top.— AvengersEndgame19 (@AEndgame19) October 27, 2019
"I thought they were really poor. You can't compare them to the two Liverpool lads."
Aurier and Rose weren't the only ones on the receiving end of Keane's ire, either.
Dele Alli, a passenger for much of the Anfield clash, has apparently been 'non-existent' over the last two years.

Roy Keane ruthless & spot on RE Dele Alli thinking he’d arrived as a player. He should be running games. If he’s not careful he’ll end up being this generation’s David Bentley— Stuart (@stuart_online) October 27, 2019
The under-performing Christian Eriksen, meanwhile, would not improve Manchester United's midfield, according to Keane. Bold, considering the current midfield personnel available to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Though he did admit himself there are caveats to that particular take...

“He wouldn’t make Man United better. Having said that they bought Fred.” 😂😂😂
In summary, it wasn't the best weekend to be a Tottenham player, and they'll be hoping to put it right when they head back to Merseyside for another Super Sunday clash with Everton.
Let's start bracing ourselves now for what Keane has to say Moussa Sissoko after that one.
