Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka in attack, Thomas Partey in midfield with three Arsenal defenders and Tottenham goalkeeper… Gunners legend Ray Parlor chooses his combined eleven in North London derby

In Sunday’s North London derby, two teams meet in a state of flux, and both are hoping a good result will see them launch this season.

Arsenal have started the season terribly, languishing at the bottom of the Premier League table for a while, before winning their last two games.

Arteta’s men won two on the rebound without conceding a goal

For the Spurs, they had the opposite. They topped the standings with three straight wins, but lost straight games 3-0 in disappointing fashion.

Arsenal could even overtake Tottenham in qualifying with a win.

However, there is still plenty of talent on both sides, and Gunners legend Ray Parlor believes Sunday’s game in the Emirates is too close to be announced.

“I think it could definitely go both ways,” he told talkSPORT Breakfast. “Most of the people will be in a draw, I imagine, which would not be a bad result for Spurs or Arsenal.

“You never want to lose those games when you’re in a North London derby, but Arsenal are a bit on top.

“It’s really hard to call.”

So who would go into a combined XI on both sides? Parlor chose the names of his team.

“In the goal, I will go with [Hugo] Cry He’s a World Cup winner and he’s still a great goalkeeper.

“[Aaron] Ramsdale is there for Arsenal right now because Leno has lost his form a bit so I have to go to Lloris.

“[Takehiro] Tomiyasu on the right side. I think he showed enough in his first game. I know this is just the beginning, but I love his energy and he seems like a decent defender as a right back.

“I’m going to Gabriel as a central defender, he made a huge difference to the team alongside Ben White, and [Cristian] Romero for the Spurs with him, I’m going to go. I think it is a good association.

“Left back, I will [Kieran] Tierney. Walk forward and get good balls in the area. He’s very energetic and he’s not a bad defender either.

Parlor continued: “My two midfielders are [Thomas] Partey, I really hope you have a good season this year, and [Pierre-Emile] Hojbjerg that I put there. It is he who will recover the ball.

“The three behind my striker are [Bukayo] Saka on the right side, [Heung-min] Threads to the left and [Emile] Smith Rowe in the middle. It is improving and I think it will improve.

“So Harry Kane upstairs.”

Do you agree with the hero of the Invincibles?
