Stuart Pearce replies when asked who has the better squad, Arsenal or Tottenham?
Stuart Pearce gives his take ahead of the north London derby clash between Arsenal and Tottenham
Stuart Pearce believes that Arsenal have the stronger squad heading into Sunday’s north London derby clash at The Emirates.
The Gunners have earned plenty of praise for their strong performances in recent weeks to leave them near the top of the Premier League table.
Tottenham, meanwhile, have come under pressure in recent games after three successive draws in the Premier League dented their title hopes.
Spurs will be looking to return to winning ways at The Emirates on Sunday after they were beaten 1-0 by Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Arsenal head into the game after having booked their place in the last 16 of the Champions League with a 3-2 win over Ludogorets.
And asked directly which of the two north London sides he feels has the better squad, Pearce told Sky Sports News HQ on Thursday morning: “Arsenal.”
Arsenal finished second in the Premier League table but without a trophy last season.
