Ian Wright names more Tottenham players than Arsenal in his 2017-18 dream team
By Harvey Byrne
Arsenal legend Ian Wright has included three Tottenham players in his personal 2017-18 dream team, which outweighs the Gunners’ two representations in his picked side.
The north London rivalry is one of the most heated in English football and those associated with either club hold a very strong allegiance to either the red or white side of London.
Wright is firmly on the side of Arsenal usually and often finds himself criticised by the Tottenham support after his seven years spent at the Gunners.
However, on Wednesday it was revealed by the official Dream Team Twitter account that Wright had named each of Hugo Lloris, Danny Rose and Harry Kane in his side, while only Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny were included from Arsenal.
