Tottenham is now a team to be reckoned with as they are now making the football world sit up and take notice following their incredible victory over Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday, according to an Arsenal legend.

The North London club showed their class as they destroyed Real by 3-1 at Wembley, a development which has got Ian Wright, a legend at Tottenham’s fiercest rivals, Arsenal, scared.

“I've always been afraid of the Tottenham emergence, because it's been coming,” Wright said on BBC 5live.

“Since Pochettino's got there it's been steadily rising and rising and the only thing you feel that is going to hold Tottenham back is ‘will Daniel Levy pay the players the kind of money that is going to keep them there?’. That's all it's going to come down to.

"This is a great manager with great, young, ambitious players. They're not fly by night players, they look like they're the real deal. Tonight's result against Real Madrid, they hammered them. And it's a team that's still got a lot more to give,” Wright said.

The former striker revealed that, from a purely Arsenal point of view, the red side of north London should rightly be shuddering at Spurs' threat to their status as a Premier League big gun.

"It's something as an Arsenal man, sitting here, it's a frightening prospect seeing their progression, it really is. And jealousy does come into it,” Wright added.
