Arsenal host Tottenham in the north London derby this weekend and it looks set to be an intriguing encounter between two teams whose starts to the new season have been almost exact mirror images of each other.
Tottenham won their first three games but have since lost their last two, while Arsenal suffered three consecutive defeats before bouncing back with victories over Norwich and Burnley.
It remains to be seen if either club are moving in the right direction but today’s quiz focuses less on the present and more on the past.
Arsenal were once the most dominant force in English football but finished last season in eighth, whereas the Lilywhites have risen from the depths of mid-table mediocrity to become a near-permanence within the Premier League’s top six.
Accordingly, the quality of player amongst both teams has fluctuated throughout the years and for every superstar like Thierry Henry or Harry Kane, there has inevitably been a player at the other end of the footballing spectrum.
With that in mind, this quiz is created in honour of those players who couldn’t quite cut the mustard for Tottenham and Arsenal, yet have one crucial thing in common – they all featured in at least one north London derby.
So, why not give our quiz a go and see how many of these completely forgettable and utterly obscure former Spurs and Arsenal players you can name…
