Speaking to talkSPORT, Tottenham Hotspur legend Ledley King has stated his belief that Spurs are currently better positioned than Arsenal.

Tottenham Hotspur were involved in a Premier League title race with eventual champions Leicester City throughout the majority of the campaign but a sudden collapse during the final few matches of the season meant that Spurs could only finish in third position, behind rivals Arsenal once again.

Arsenal fans certainly revelled at their side trumping Tottenham to second spot at the last minute, and the Gunners have now finished above Spurs in the table for 21 years in a row.

Despite constantly playing second fiddle to Arsenal though, Tottenham legend Ledley King believes that his former side are better placed than their rivals heading into the upcoming Premier League campaign and has added that the Gunners have more of a need to strengthen their squad than Spurs do this summer.

He told talkSPORT, “At the moment everyone connected with the club feel that the team are in a really good position at the moment. Arsenal are probably going to make a few adjustments like every other team, but I think Tottenham probably need the least adjustments moving into next season.

“Obviously every season is a new season and if you don’t perform then you will be found out but looking from the outside as a Tottenham fan, you feel very confident about the current squad and will not have to do too much over the summer.”

While King may well be a bit biased towards Tottenham, he is probably right in saying that Tottenham possess a more stable team compared to their North London rivals. Spurs were consistent throughout the season and were only undone at the end due to lack of experience.

As for Arsenal, they never really looked like challenging for the title after February and will in all probability require a major surgery in the summer in order to be considered genuine contenders next season, despite their 2nd placed finish.
