The former Tottenham boss has been discussing Arsenal and their north London rivals.
And the pundit told the Standard: "Arsenal won’t have given up on the Premier League title but they need their English contingent to stand up and be counted because Tottenham’s home-grown talent have bypassed them now.
"The recent England friendlies were an indication of how far things have shifted. Roy Hodgson relied on Dele Alli, Harry Kane, Eric Dier, Danny Rose and, to a lesser extent, Kyle Walker to prove England are on the right track for Euro 2016 because they are the players who have been vital to Spurs’ season."
And it's interesting to see just how important Spurs' English players have been at White Hart Lane.
The Gunners' English contingent, for instance, have never really played a leading role at the Emirates Stadium. For Tottenham, though, this season would be nowhere near the same without the likes of Dier and Alli - and obviously Kane.
Next up for Tottenham is a home clash against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon. Arsenal, meanwhile, travel to West Ham United this weekend.
