Former Tottenham star Jamie Redknapp felt Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker was outstanding in their 1-1 draw at Manchester City.

Redknapp wrote in the Daily Mail: "Per Mertesacker has at times been a laughing stock since he joined Arsenal — I’ll admit I’ve been critical of him.

"But the German was the best defender on the pitch against Manchester City, reading the game brilliantly and striding out well from the back. It shows what you can achieve with a bit of confidence."
