Thierry Henry has admitted that Alexis Sanchez is the only Arsenal player who would get into the Tottenham team on current form.

Sanchez has been Arsenal’s top performing player this season and is widely regarded to be one of the Premier League’s top performing attacking stars.

Tottenham have earned plenty of praise for their performances this season and the Lilywhites are currently second in the Premier League table.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have struggled to produce consistent performances since the turn of the year and their Champions League qualification hopes are in serious doubt.

The Gunners will take on their bitter local rivals at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

And Henry has conceded that Tottenham are looking like a much stronger outfit these days than they did during his time at Arsenal.

Henry told Sky Sports: “It’s difficult for me as an Arsenal man at the minute.

“But you have to be honest. At the minute also, I can only see right now Alexis Sanchez getting into that team without anyone saying ‘how come he’s in the team?’

“All the others, I think people will argue with that…”
