Just when you think it’s impossible to love Gareth Bale more than it’s actually possible he admits that Spurs are the number one club in North London.
The Tottenham winger has been in superb form this season and now believes that we have closed the gap on Arsenal and now have the stronger squad.
Bale will be looking to help Spurs go four points ahead of Arsenal with a victory at West Ham United on Monday night.
The Welshman is absolutely right, we have a much stronger squad than those lot at the Library who only just managed to scrape past Aston Villa yesterday courtesy of a late winner.
“I think five or 10 years ago Arsenal were always miles ahead of Tottenham. But that has changed in recent years,” he told the Sun.
“Over the past few seasons we have closed that gap and I think now we have overtaken them on the pitch. I think we have the stronger squad. Hopefully we can continue to do that as a club off the pitch as well, with the new stadium that is being built.
“But on the pitch and as a team now we are a lot more consistent and as a club we’re moving in the right direction. Arsenal may say they are still ahead of us. But whatever people’s opinions I don’t think anyone can deny we are up there fighting with them on merit now.”
