'They are coming' - Ian Wright sends warning after Tottenham defeat Arsenal
By Harvey Byrne
Arsenal great Ian Wright has sent a warning message to his old side in regards to Tottenham after Spurs emerged victorious in Sunday’s north London derby.
The two fierce rivals met at the weekend with goals from each of Dele Alli and Harry Kane sending Mauricio Pochettino’s side to an easy victory.
The three points has also seen Tottenham take a 17-point lead after their arch rivals and with five games left for the Gunners they can now no longer finish above Spurs for the first time since 1995.
Now, manager Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has previously stated he’s not too worried about Tottenham with it being the the first year out of 20 that Spurs have finished on top.
However, ex-striker Wright has disagreed with his old manager’s thoughts and has told that while Tottenham are progressing, Arsenal are regressing.

“I don’t think so,” told Wright speaking on Sunday evening’s Match of the Day Three when asked if Wenger had the right attitude towards Spurs.
“I think that as much as it’s not important in the grand scheme of things, they are coming, they’re on their way and there’s a lot of things happening at Spurs that’s progressing, whereas with Arsenal there’s a lot of things happening which is regressing.”
Tottenham have seemingly bee on an upward curve since manager Pochettino was appointed from Southampton in the summer of 2014.
In his first season in charge he took Spurs to a fifth place finish before helping them to a third placing in the last campaign and now it looks like second place is the minimum position Tottenham will take this season.
Meanwhile, Arsenal have not won the Premier League title for 13 years and are currently sat in sixth place.
