Gunners can down Spurs - Wright

Next Story

Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes his former club's mental edge will see them end the season above north London rivals Tottenham.

The Gunners moved closer to their old foes on Monday night, with Thomas Vermaelen's strike five minutes into injury time earning a dramatic 2-1 win over Newcastle. The victory means the 10-point gap that once separated Arsenal and Spurs has been reduced to one.

Wright has been impressed by Arsene Wenger's side's spirit of late and - speaking at an Absolute Radio event for the Prince's Trust - said: "This is where their squad's going to be tested and this is what I say to the Tottenham fans. You just have to wait and watch them get reeled in because even Man City, with the money they've spent and everything, are getting reeled in."
