Henry says Sanchez is the ONLY Arsenal player who would get in Tottenham team

Date Posted,April 25, 2017

Thierry Henry believes Alexis Sanchez is the only Arsenal player who would get in Tottenham’s team.

The north London rivals face off at White Hart Lane this weekend in an eagerly-anticipated derby.

Spurs are 14 points clear of Arsenal as things stand and cannot afford to drop any more points as they look to keep the pressure on leaders Chelsea.

A dismal run of form has seen the Gunners slip as low as seventh, although a top four spot is still achievable.

They fought back to beat Manchester City in the FA Cup on Sunday but Gunners legend Henry believes there has been a real shift in power.

“It’s difficult for me as an Arsenal man at the minute but you have to be honest,” Henry told Sky Sports’ The Boots are Off.

“I can only see right now Alexis Sanchez getting into that team without anyone saying ‘how come he’s in the team?’

“All the others, I think people will argue with that… but that doesn’t mean Tottenham are going to win easily.”
