Arsenal legend Ian Wright has hailed Tottenham’s Mousa Dembele, and he believes the Spurs midfielder has what it takes to threaten Chelsea’s backline.

In an exclusive column for The Sun, he wrote: “Forget about his eye gouge on Diego Costa in last season’s Battle of the Bridge meltdown.

When Dembele is feeling fit and strong and on top of his game, there is nobody better in the Premier League at running at opposition players and putting the frighteners on them.

Not so much in a physical way but with his momentum and technical ability to put players under the cosh in front of their own goal.”

While Dembele is a player I admire, Spurs definitely have a lot to worry about in this threatening Chelsea side.
