Ledley King believes Hugo Lloris, Harry Kane and Danny Rose are the three Tottenham players to step up in the dressing room if the team is losing.
All three players named by King are senior and first team members of a Spurs team that is chasing the Premier League title.
They will host north London rivals Arsenal on Sunday where fans will be expecting their team to turn up and produce the goods.
Speaking on North London Derby, Boots are off, which aired on Sky Sports 1 on Wednesday night, King named the three players who would step up for Spurs if they are losing to Arsenal at half-time.
“You would think, Hugo Lloris,” King told Sky Sports. “I know that Harry [Kane] has taken on the mantle of being the captain of the club. He knows what it means to the fans.
“There is players of experience. Danny Rose is someone who has got fire in his belly. If he’s not happy, he will let you know.”
At this moment in time, only goalkeeper Lloris and striker Kane are expected to start the match against Arsenal at the weekend.
Left-back Rose is working his way back from injury and could feature against the Gunners depending on his current situation.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are currently on course to finish above their rivals this season, with the Gunners 14 points behind.
Arsenal have had a turbulent time both in the league and the Champions League, which has seen manager Arsene Wenger come under serious pressure.
Many supporters have called for the Frenchman to step down from his post when his contract at the Emirates expires in the summer.
