Nigel Winterburn has warned Arsenal that they are set to face one of Tottenham’s greatest-ever sides when they take on the Lilywhites at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.

Spurs have earned plenty of praise for the strong performances they have shown this season under Mauricio Pochettino as they challenged for the title once again.

Tottenham are currently four points behind Chelsea in the race for the title but that gap could be seven points by the time they kick off against Arsenal on Sunday.

And Arsenal legend Winterburn admits that he has been hugely impressed by the talent in Tottenham’s squad this season.

Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Winterburn said: “In all round ability it [the Tottenham squad] is very strong.

“It has to be up there with one of their best-ever teams. You look at their back five, they use their full-backs going forward.

“You’ve got Harry Kane getting goals. Christian Eriksen getting goals and assists and the young player of the year in Dele Alli. Ever since he joined he’s been incredible.”
