Ian Wright names which Arsenal players would get into current Tottenham side

Ian Wright has been comparing Arsenal and Tottenham's current squads

Ian Wright believes that the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Petr Cech would be regular starters in the current Tottenham Hotspur side.

Spurs have enjoyed a positive start to the new season and have been one of the Premier League’s most consistent sides so far this term.

The Lilywhites came from a goal down to earn a 1-1 draw at Everton on Sunday afternoon to keep them in fourth place in the Premier League table after 20 games.

Many have been tipping Spurs as possible outsiders to mount a Premier League title challenge in the second half of the season, despite Mauricio Pochettino being mainly concerned with guiding his side to a top-four finish and Champions League qualification.

And Arsenal legend Wright admits that there are not many players from the current Gunners side who would earn a regular spot in their bitter local rivals’ starting line-up.

Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live’s 606 programme: “Sanchez is getting in there, and I’d put Ozil in there at the moment. I’d put Cech in there in front of [Hugo] Lloris, [Nacho] Monreal at left-back, and [Hector] Bellerin in there [at right-back] over Kyle [Walker].

“What we’ll do is just put the Arsenal team in there and call them Tottenham.

“But [seriously] Sanchez and Mesut [Ozil]. I think those two would definitely get in.”
