Ian Wright doesn’t believe Arsenal have any players that would command a place in the Tottenham Hotspur team.

The Gunners suffered a resounding 2-0 loss to Tottenham in the north London derby at White Hart Lane last weekend.

Goals from Dele Alli and Harry Kane secured three points for Tottenham and ensured that Spurs will finish above Arsenal in the Premier League this season.

Indeed, Tottenham have secured a finish ahead of Arsenal for the first time since Arsene Wenger took charge of the Gunners in 1996.

Arsenal are facing an uphill battle to secure a place in the Premier League’s top four in the 2016-17 season.

The Gunners are 17 points behind Tottenham with five games to go in the current campaign.

Speaking to the Sun Goals podcast about how many Arsenal players would get in Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham side, Wright said:

“At the moment, you wouldn’t put any of them in. None of them would be able to get into the Tottenham side in any of those positions.”
