Piers Morgan tweets his combined Arsenal and Spurs all-time XI

Piers Morgan has revealed his combined Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur XI of all-time, ahead of the North-London derby tomorrow.

Piers Morgan has revealed his all-time combined Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur XI and, rather surprisingly, he has included three Spurs players.

Morgan is known for his controversial views on Twitter, but the XI he has named between the two teams seems a fairly balanced opinion, given his usual stance.

He used Twitter this afternoon to post his favoured team, which consisted of: Seaman, Dixon, Adams, Campbell, Cole, Vieira, Mackay, Gascoigne, Bergkamp, Bale, Henry.

If that team was brought together, at their peaks, in any era it would look impressive and the inclusions of Dave Mackay, Paul Gascoigne and Gareth Bale, all of whom represented Spurs in their playing careers, show how highly they are regarded - even by their rival supporters.

Unsurprisingly, Morgan's picks from the Gunners side are formed with a large number from the famous 'Invincibles' squad and he did say that Robert Pires and Liam Brady were both unlucky to miss out. 

It is notable that Morgan has not picked any member of either side's current squads, and that probably sums up the frustrations felt by both fan-bases at the moment.

Arsenal and Spurs went into the season with high expectations, but their teams haven't lived up to their billings so far and there is a lack of players, in either squad, who will go down as true legends.

The tweet comes ahead of the North-London derby this season, which takes place tomorrow and Morgan is sure to be hoping that his beloved Gunners side come out on top.

Arsenal go into the game as heavy favourites, but they will have to be wary of the threat that Spurs can pose if they are on their game.

Mauricio Pochettino's side have faltered so far this season, after a promising start, but they will be determined to get back on track at the Emirates at the weekend.

If they are to do so, it would be a seriously concerning moment for Arsenal supporters, who were hoping for a title challenge this campaign. 

The prospect of seeing Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez together created a great sense of anticipation around  the club before the season had started, but it hasn't gone according to plan for Arsene Wenger's side so far.

They have generally struggled through matches, but a comprehensive win against Aston Villa last weekend should provide them with a bit of momentum heading into this derby match and they will be looking to build upon this result at the weekend.
