​Sherwood: Only two Arsenal players would get in Tottenham team

Former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood believes only two Arsenal players would get into the current Tottenham side.

The two North London clubs are preparing to renew their rivalry in the Premier League on Sunday.

Despite signing players that cost a total of £150 million in the summer, Sherwood still believes Arsenal have a far weaker starting lineup and squad than Spurs.

Sherwood singled out Kieran Tierney and Bukayo Saka for praise.

"Out of a combined XI Tierney certainly gets in, [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang I'm not sure because he's not been great, I still think Son [Heung-min] and [Harry] Kane are the two strikers up there. You'd have to have Saka in there but really it's a poor bunch to be honest," Sherwood told Ladbrokes.

"No one is standing out for me as the rest are still developing at Arsenal.

"[Martin] Odegaard will be a good player; he scored a fantastic free kick at the weekend but it's not easy to pick a combined XI."
