Ashley Cole has admitted that Tottenham Hotspur are ‘not at the level’ of Arsenal after losing to Chelsea in the EFL Cup.
Speaking to Sky Sports Football, Cole claimed that Spurs are far behind from Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal.
The former left-back spoke of how he’s unsure if Antonio Conte can do the business at the club, like he did at Chelsea and Inter Milan.
“Individually, I think they are behind Chelsea. “Conte wants and hopes for patience and time.” said Cole.
“If Tottenham fans and Tottenham as a club want to see the best Antonio Conte, then you have to give him a chance.
“We have seen it at Inter and Chelsea, whether he could do it at Tottenham, I don’t know.
“The level, I feel, is not at the level of Chelsea. Let alone Liverpool, Manchester City or Arsenal. Not there yet.”
