Ian Wright has warned that he is seeing a similar 'pattern' forming at Tottenham to the one he saw at Arsenal after he heard Mauricio Pochettino's latest comments.
Both Arsenal and Tottenham will meet in the Premier League this Sunday, with Pochettino worryingly saying that his squad is 'unsettled', as quoted by Sky Sports.
Pochettino's side suffered a home defeat to Newcastle over the weekend, as their performances since the start of the season haven't been great.
"Why didn't he start Lo Celso then," Wright told the Monday Night Club. "He's their creative player. They need creativity in that midfield. We are saying it's too early to judge. It's kind of going on with Tottenham, we know that this has happened with Tottenham.
“We know that there are players unsettled for whatever reasons. We know that Danny Rose is being unsettled and Alderweireld. It's three games in and people are saying, 'Oh, it's too early to judge'. But there seems to be something not quite right.
“He himself [Pochettino] has said it's the most unsettled squad he has had. When you look at the stats of the City game, they were very comfortable. What I am saying is there is something wrong – those players have now tasted the Champions League and they know they can go elsewhere – You have got the top player and they have to get something for him. We saw it at Arsenal. You are kind of seeing a pattern here with Tottenham. I think that may happen in the future for Spurs [selling their best players].
From a Tottenham supporters perspective, those Pochettino comments won't exactly be great to hear, especially with the North London derby coming up.
On top of that, their performances haven't exactly been great, but a win against your neighbours can change everything.
Arsenal themselves suffered a defeat over the weekend, with Liverpool putting three goals past them at Anfield.
