Former Tottenham and West Ham forward Teddy Sheringham suggests the Hammers can beat Arsenal and Spurs in the top four, calling the North London sides “average”.
Sunday’s North London Derby marks a major moment in the Champions League football race.
Questions have arisen about the Gunners and Spurs this season, but both can take a big step towards fourth place with a win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
In the meantime, however, they both look to another London club – West Ham.
David Moyes’ side continue to be above their weight after qualifying for this season’s Europa League – and we hope they can do better this season.
And Sheringham, for his part, hasn’t seen anything from Arsenal or Tottenham this campaign that impressed him as much as the Hammers.
The former England international told talkSPORT: “I’m watching Tottenham right now and I don’t see a lot of good players in their squad.

“Other than Harry Kane, who is probably still underachieving.
“I think it’s difficult at the moment. When you watch their performance against Chelsea the other night, I thought it was men against boys.
“For me, it’s two middle-class teams going head-to-head in the North London derby. And whoever performs best that day is likely to win the points. “
As to whether West Ham can beat them in the top four, Sheringham added: “When you look at teams playing as a team, they are a suitable unit, everyone knows their job, everyone is doing their job, they all pull together, they have good leadership in their management and the staff around them.
“I really like what’s going on at West Ham. If you all play together, you have a chance.
