Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur lost to Arsenal in the North London derby at the weekend.
Tottenham suffered a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Arsenal away from home at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
The loss means that Spurs are now below the Gunners in the league table, but level on points with Unai Emery’s side.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side will return to action on Wednesday evening when they take on Southampton at the Wembley Stadium in London in the Premier League.
Former Arsenal attacking midfielder Merson does not believe that Tottenham should worry after losing to Arsenal.
The former England international star, though, has suggested that Spurs fans should be worried about players leaving the club in the future.
Merson told Sky Sports when asked if Tottenham should be worried: “No, no. One game. They play Southampton at home on Wednesday, Arsenal go to Man United.”
The Sky Sports pundit added: “I would be worried if I was a Tottenham fan because I think those players get on the coach, they go home and start thinking, ‘Am I going to win anything here?’”
The defeat to Arsenal must have come as a bitter disappointment to Tottenham, but they should bounce back against Southampton.
The Saints are struggling at the moment and are in danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season, and Spurs should be able to pick up all three points from the encounter with relative ease.
