Lineker rates Spurs ahead of Arsenal

Tottenham legend Gary Lineker feels his old club are now superior to North London rivals Arsenal.

Lineker rates the Spurs squad as the stronger.

"Yeah I mean if you look at the two squads at the moment, you would have Spurs ahead.

"Personally I think that at present, you know they've got to confirm that with a League position…

"Well I think, the defence is stronger, I still think it's you know could be stronger still and in mid-field, I don't think there's a lot to choose in mid-field, but Spurs have got Bale and he's, well people talk about Walcott but he, I don't think they are quite in the same league personally."

Lineker was speaking with Ian Wright of Absolute Radio's Rock n' Roll Football. Every Saturday from 5pm on 1215AM. For more, visit
