Tim Sherwood is brutally honest with his Arsenal and Spurs combined XI

Former Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood was asked by Sky Sports to pick his combined Arsenal and Spurs XI ahead of the North London derby on Sunday.

Sherwood, who was in charge at White Hart Lane between December 2013 and May 2014 and is known for his 50% win ratio at the club.

Just three points separate Tottenham in third from Arsenal in fifth within the Premier League table for what should be a fiery encounter.

Tottenham go into the game having won their last six matches in a row that includes impressive victories against Chelsea and Inter Milan, while Arsenal are unbeaten in all competitions in their last seventeen outings under new boss Unai Emery.

When asked to pick the strongest eleven between both of the North London rivals, Sherwood did not pull any punches when he decided to select eleven Tottenham players, meaning that no Arsenal players are good enough to replace any of Mauricio Pochettino’s stars.

  1. Sherwood should get a job with the EU as he is deluded as Barnier & co. He may have been a descent player but his management experience and tactical awareness leave a lot to be desired. Sunday 2 : 1 (2 possible).
