Biased pundit wrongly claims only two Arsenal stars would make north London fantasy XI

Imagine how Tim Sherwood has wrongly claimed that only two Arsenal players would get into a fantasy line-up created with only players currently playing in north London, with nine coming from Tottenham Hotspur.

The former midfielder spent four years playing at White Hart Lane, so it is no shock to understand why he holds such a bias, but surely any neutral wouldn’t dream of leaving out certain players of ours.

While there would be no complaint that the likes of Harry Kane and Son make the team, you have to be blind or crazy to overlook players such as Thomas Partey, while Martin Odegaard and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would also get in most teams.

Sherwood claims that only Bukayo Saka and Kieran Tierney would be named in such a side however.

‘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.’

The Gunner in me really wanted to leave out Ndombele simply because he has actually achieved very little on my account, although I know he is rated amongst certain circles, and don’t want to be seen as being biased, but I think this would be a fair line-up, with our team actually holding six of the positions in the team.

Could you name a better starting line-up using only players from both Spurs and Arsenal? If you can
