A North London XI – Combining The Best Of Arsenal And Spurs

 If asked to choose an all north London 11 – players from only Arsenal and Tottenham – this is what my side would look like in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

GK – Hugo Lloris – Spurs

The Frenchman nicks it over the Gunners’ Poland international for me. Lloris sits on the edge of his box and cuts out any potential danger.

RB – Bacary Sagna – Arsenal

For me Sagna is more reliable than Spurs’ Kyle Walker and takes our right-back spot.

CB – Per Mertesacker – Arsenal

The giant German has been brilliant for the last season and has proved one of the most domineering defenders in the Premier League.

CB – Jan Vertonghen – Spurs

Although the Spurs defence has been a bit dodgy of late, the big Belgian is generally a fine defender. He partners Mertesacker in our defence.

LB – Nacho Monreal – Arsenal

The Spaniard has quietly gone about his business since signing for the Gunners and is turning into a brilliant acquisition.

DMC – Paulinho – Spurs

The Brazilian has played remarkable since he completed his switch in the summer. He has scored once and created 10 chances so far in seven games while completing 86% of his passes.

DMC – Aaron Ramsey – Arsenal

the Wales international is on fire this season, scoring eight goals in 11 games. No question that he deserves his spot.

RM – Erik Lamela – Spurs

Although the former Roma winger hasn’t clicked yet in a Spurs shirt, I have big hopes for him. Able to play with either foot on either foot, our three attacking players will interchange at will.

CAM – Christian Eriksen – Spurs

Which brings us onto our Danish talent Eriksen. The little playmaker has sculpted seven chances this season in four games.

LM – Mesut Ozil – Arsenal

Possibly the greatest creative player in world football, Ozil has set the English topflight alight since his deadline day move. With 11 chances created in four games, as well as a goal in the Champions League, Ozil will attack with flexibility and a huge amount of freedom.

ST – Olivier Giroud

Despite being written off by a lot of critics, the France international has struck four league goals in seven games and created 12 opportunities for his colleagues.

  1. Hmm, I'm not sure you can put in Monreal, Gibbs has played ahead of him all season and is doing a great job. I also don't trust any combined 11 that doesn't involve Cazorla. And where the hell is Dembele, he's your best player!

  2. personally I would go for:

    Sagna – Mertesacker – Koscielny – Gibbs
    Ramsey – Wilshere
    Walcott – Cazorla – Ozil

    But that's just me

  3. Lloris
    Walker Vertonghen Kaboul Rose
    Dembele Paulinho
    Lamela Eriksen Townsend

    Strongest team in a mile!
