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.
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.”

Henry sat down with former Spurs skipper Ledley King for the show and the ex-defender shared a similar view, adding: “It was difficult for me to pick two. There’s Sanchez and the other one was Ozil.”
An Arsenal win will surely end Spurs’ title hopes and Henry claims that should be all the motivation the visitors need.
“If I was going to the Lane the way it is at the minute and people were thinking ‘we cannot win any big games away from home’ and we can stop them winning the title, I would wake up that day thinking ‘this is my day today'”, he added.
