Bernd Leno: Arsenal bigger than Chelsea, Spurs

Bernd Leno is adamant Arsenal are the biggest club in London.

The German is now settled as Arsenal's No 1 and is happy to fan the flames of the Gunners' rivalry with Tottenham and Chelsea.

Leno told Sport Bild: "You can't compare, of course Arsenal is a world club, THE club here in London.

"Not Chelsea, not Tottenham - Arsenal is the club here with fans around the world."

But Leno has been impressed by Arsenal's global reach since joining the club a year ago.

He added: "No matter where we are, also in the USA or in Asia, there are many fans of Arsenal everywhere."
