Spurs legend Hoddle unimpressed by derby victors Arsenal

Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle says Arsenal shouldn't be celebrating too soon after their derby triumph.

Hoddle feels the Gunners still have a lot to work on.

He told Absolute Radio: "There is definite work to be done. They have got some wonderful players. Defensively, I still think they look very reckless, they look open and they can improve going forwards still. As you say, they scored the five goals on the back of really having, sort of, such a long time.

"18 minutes in you go down to 10 men or you're playing against 10 men and that's different than maybe the last half an hour, which normally happens. So, yeah, I mean Arsenal took Tottenham to the sword in the end and you have got to say that, but in the long term, when it was eleven-v-eleven, at the Emirates, you've got to say for that sort of period of short period of time, Spurs looked, probably, the better team."

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