Arsenal are the most successful Premier League club in London but the recent downward descent of the club has seen Tottenham become stronger than the Gunners on the pitch and they are not looking like they’ll take their foot off the throttle.
Arsenal legend Ian Wright reckons that he hurts to see Tottenham excel, adding that he is jealous of the club’s victory against Champions League holders Real Madrid.
Wright holds the second best record for goals scored at Arsenal and during his time with the Gunners, they did not only dominate London but the Premier League as well. Wright and some of the Gunners legends have become somewhat worried that Tottenham are becoming the giants of London.
Arsenal finished outside the top four players in the league last term while Tottenham ended as runners-up, and this term, the Gunners are yet trailing Pochettino’s men in the league.
“I’ve always been afraid of the Tottenham emergence because it’s been coming,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live. “Since Pochettino’s got there it’s been steadily rising and rising and the only thing you feel that is going to hold Tottenham back is, will [chairman] Daniel Levy pay the players the kind of money that is going to keep them there? That’s all it’s going to come down to.”
Tottenham stunned Real Madrid 3-1 in the Champions League last night but the result is no fluke as they were able to draw Los Blancos at the Santiago Bernabeu. The result of Tottenham is a big contrast to Arsenal who despite qualifying for the Champions league always, have failed to beat the likes of Bayern Munich and Barcelona.
It is indeed worrying times for the Gunners but we hope Arsene Wenger feels the pains of the fans and relinquish his position for someone better.
