There is no one who inspires as much hate and contempt among Spurs fans as former club captain and defender Sol Campbell.
The defender has never been forgiven for the atrocious act of betrayal he committed back in the summer of 2001.
So Spurs fans wouldn’t have been pleased to see him be part of the Sky Sports’ pre-match and post-match panel to analyze the North London Derby on Sunday.
However, the former England defender also made a surprising admission about his two former clubs. The 44-year-old claimed that Spurs have left Arsenal behind on and off the pitch over the last couple of years and the Gunners had a long way to catch their rivals.
“They’ve now got a new stadium, so it’s time for Arsenal to catch-up because they have been left behind, no doubt about it. Arsenal are trying to get back to being that competitive side and they’re slowly doing that.
“What Tottenham have done over the last two seasons has been fantastic, they’ve grown. It wasn’t like that when I was there. Now, they’re up there competing; Champions League final. It’s fantastic.”

Arsenal caught Spurs at the best possible time given the negativity surrounding the club and their poor form but they still failed to beat Pochettino’s men. Once the new players settle in and the injured players are back, I expect Spurs to become a lot more consistent and finish comfortably ahead of Arsenal.
