Paul Walsh: These three men have made Tottenham better than Arsenal
By Aramide Oladipo
Sky Sports pundit Paul Walsh believes that Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Mauricio Pochettino have made Tottenham a better club than Arsenal.
Walsh underlined the importance of making Pochettino the manager and he also believes that Englishmen Kane and Alli have given Spurs a significant edge over their North London rivals.
Both Alli and Kane found themselves on the scoresheet in the final North London derby at White Hart Lane a fortnight ago as Tottenham finished above Arsenal in the Premier League for the first time since 1995.
Speaking on the Sky Sports show Premier League Daily (Tuesday, 10am), Walsh stated: “Tottenham have improved because of a few great signings. But mainly it’s the emergence of Harry Kane and buying Dele Alli.”
Harry Kane has demonstrated his quality throughout this season as he has scored a total of 27 goals in all competitions and he’s just four goals short of his best tally of 31 from the 2014/15 campaign.

Dele Alli has already registered the best numbers of his young career this season as he has scored 21 goals in all competitions and he’s excelled especially in the Premier League scoring 17 goals and providing 5 assists.
Walsh also lauded praise on the current Spurs boss and believes Pochettino has become a better manager than his counterpart.
Walsh added: “You could argue the fact that Pochettino has bought well and improved Tottenham makes him a more successful manager than Arsene Wenger at the moment, certainly looking at their league position.”
The Spanish manager has only been at White Hart Lane for three years but he has managed to turn Tottenham into title contenders and he’s secured the club their second successive top three finish.
