Roy Keane has claimed to Sky Sports, during their live League Cup coverage, that Tottenham Hotspur will have no fear heading into a League Cup final against Manchester City.
Spurs are set to take on City in April, as they seek to win the first domestic trophy of the campaign.
Pep Guardiola’s side appear to have started to find top gear again in recent weeks, after what has been a slow start to the season.
And Keane feels that Tottenham will relish the challenge of taking on City.
“Brilliant, it’s a great final,” Keane said. “Exciting. Pep and Jose, it’s brilliant. It’s set up for a great game. Tottenham have gone a number of years without a trophy.
“Spurs won’t be fearful of playing Man City. They’ll set up to play on the counter attack, as they have done previously.
“They have outstanding attacking players in Son and Kane, and they will fancy their chances against anybody. You look at Pep’s CV, look at Mourinho’s CV. Spurs brought him in to win trophies, he’ll have that opportunity in three months time.”
Tottenham have already beaten City once this season, so they should feel confident going into the game.
Jose Mourinho outsmarted Guardiola when the two sides last met, as Spurs picked up a 2-0 victory.
In truth Tottenham were rarely troubled in that fixture, as they put in an excellent defensive display.
If Spurs are able to lift the League Cup it will be their first major silverware since they won this competition back in 2008.
