Tottenham, Chelsea, and Arsenal have all been battling for a spot in the top four this season, but what if the three London clubs joined forces to create one starting XI?

We have created just that!

With both Hugo Lloris and Kepa having a bit of a nightmare at the moment, Arsenal’s Bernd Leno finds himself between the sticks almost by default.

Reece James walks into the right-back spot, with an unconventional choice of Japhet Tanganga to play as the ride-sided centre-back, seeing as he has been Spurs’ most consistent defender of late.

The experience of Cesar Azpilicueta comes into play alongside Japhet, with Kieran Tierney on the left, despite the fact he hasn’t really got going since joining the Gunners due to injuries. His potential is immense.

A central duo of Kante and Lo Celso provides both defensive cover and creativity to allow the front four to work their magic.

Harry Kane drops into a number ten role for the London team, with Tammy Abraham acting as a number nine. Heung-min Son and Aubameyang provide the electric pace and finishing ability on the wings.
